Punjab deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal on Tuesday granted next higher ranks to 865 police personnel of various ranks, according to a government spokesperson.


Among the police personnel set to get the next rank are 40 superintendents of police, 125 deputy superintendents of police, 200 inspectors, 250 sub-inspectors, and 250 assistant sub-inspectors.

"The deputy CM will preside over the formal piping ceremony to be organised soon for these police officers and officials at Punjab Armed Police headquarters, Jalandhar," the spokesperson said.

The government will also enlarge the ambit of new initiatives, including the rural rapid police response system, under which police assistance is made available in villages and remotest rural areas within less than 20 minutes. "The safe city project in Ludhiana and Amritsar, the senior citizen helpline and the NRI helpline are some other measures which are likely to be implemented statewide soon," the spokesperson said.

New Delhi, 1984. New York, 2014.

In my parent’s bedroom is a framed photo that seems a bit out of place. The small image has an aged yellow tint and displays my father at the young age of 24, standing proudly atop the GB Pant Hospital in New Delhi, India. He looks just as I do now. Tall, skinny, his not-yet full beard kept neatly on the sides of his jaw as he sports a clean pair of glasses and a neat turban matching his shirt. That year (1984), my father was in his medical residency pursuing a specialty in anesthesiology. His eyes shine of dreams of the success that would come from his hard work in the future. However, what could not be captured in the photograph is what my father had seen in that year, 1984. Writes Manmeet Singh Gujral
