Known as Bihar’s ‘super cop’, IPS officer Amit Lodha shares how sometimes pride takes the better of oneself. “I became the SP of Nalanda when I was 25 years old and then SSP of Muzaffarpur. And I thought life would go straight up. I started behaving as if I would be DGP of Bihar very soon. I became a little conceded. I became a little cocky. Too full of myself,” said Lodha, who struck down one of Bihar’s most dangerous criminals who had killed 15 people in a matter of 24 hours, in this inspiring TEDx Talk.

He further emphasised that one shouldn’t get blinded by success. “When you get a lot of success in your career, you start believing that you can never go wrong. But I had a massive fall,” he shared.
“The government changed and I was relegated to a post where there were no bodyguards, no bungalows and no salary. I started feeling as if all my fans have deserted me. I was very frustrated and it spilled over to my family life. But soon, I realised, my problems were nothing,” he added.
