What does it take to become an IPS officer? Hours of rigorous physical training, mental toughening and systemic conditioning at the national police academy, along with a never-give-up attitude, unwavering courage, grit and determination.
Win All Your Battles, first published in Marathi as Kar Har Maidan Fateh, is the fascinating story of how Vishwas Nangre Patil rose from his humble village origins to become a steadfast, upright police officer and youth icon.
In this book, Patil, recipient of the President's Police Medal for Gallantry for his role in countering the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, talks about his experiences at the police academy and the lessons he has learnt in a career spanning over two decades-from tackling mob violence to managing law and order during large public gatherings, solving serious crimes and implementing the latest technology for better law enforcement.
This book is a must-read-not just for those who want to fulfil their khaki dreams, but for anyone in need of some inspiration.
