He has been there and done that. And now he plans to capture all of it in words.

Yudhvir Singh Dadwal, who would be taking his last salute as Delhi Police chief from his men on Wednesday morning, is planning to write a book on his experiences.

Dadwal, a 1974-batch officer, is taking charge as the director general of Shashastra Seema Bal (SSB) after a stint of over three years as the Delhi Police commissioner during which he was credited for the successful completion of the Commonwealth Games.

"I may write an autobiography after my retirement," he said.

Also, he plans to spend a little more time playing golf. A game that he "loves to play and watch".

The only regret he has so to say is that the recent Jama Masjid blast case has not been solved during his tenure.

"A policeman will never be satisfied if one case remain unsolved. In that sense I can never be satisfied. I wish the Jama Masjid case could have been solved during my tenure," said Dadwal.

For him the successful completion of the Commonwealth Games is one of his biggest achievements.

"Of course, the successful conduct of the Commonwealth Games on security perspective is the most memorable event during my tenure as commissioner. It is not my achievement but that of the force."

Next on his mind is his new assignment, DG SSB, for which he has started his homework already.

"I am going to study first and only then I will work for the paramilitary force which is the guarding force and lead intelligence agency for Indo-Nepal border and assigned the task of guarding the 1,751 km long Indo-Nepal border," Dadwal said.
