Kiran Bedi. In person. Face to face. I was so awed. Before I met her I was awed by her personality as I had seen on TV. And when I met her today I was awed by her simplicity and her genuine endearing smile.
About 2 weeks ago, I saw her by chance when I went to meet someone and they are somehow related. So when I saw her walking in the meeting room I was speechless since I didn't expect to meet her then. My mind was going crazy with so many things to tell her and talk to her about but I just couldn't. That day she was sitting a feet away from me and I just couldn't utter a word. I was so out of words.
And today I actually spoke with her. It was a short meeting of about 8-10 mins. But I know I will never forget this meeting ever. And I told her so too. I told her how awed I was with her. And the fact that how I was kind of dumbfounded when I saw her the other day. And that how glad I am feeling to have been able to meet her in person. She was smiling her big smile all the time when I was saying all this and modestly tried to wave off the compliments I was giving her.
It surely is one of the memorable events in my life. It sure is.
