An extraordinary woman going beyond her call, working towards the betterment of the country. The 27 year old initiated a Non-Profit Organisation to make people aware about breast cancer.
In the year 2017, she started the NGO after finishing her MBBS degree from Patiala Government Medical College. She also organised many breast cancer screening camps through the NGO named, Pink Link Campaign.
What made her switch two opposite career goals?
From saving lives as a doctor to serving the nation as an IPS officer, this is the story of a 27 year old unsung hero named Dr Kalpana Ahluwalia. She is the topper of the 73rd batch of the Indian Police Service hailing from Punjab.
After constantly putting all her efforts in Medical Science she shifted her interest from Medical to Administration. She was inspired by her Grandfather, Narinder Singh who was an retired Punjab Policeman.
Views on change and woman empowerment
Dr Darpan Ahluwalia says “It is not a change of path, but an extension of what I have been doing in the past. With this new role, I will be more approachable to people, particularly women, as people look to the police as the first resort in any crisis or emergency”.
List of her glorious achievements.
She was conferred with many awards like the Martyr KS Vyas Trophy for Internal Security and Public Order and Field craft and Tactics.
