The Secretary of the Tennis Association, who issued railway concession forms, loved to keep people waiting in a queue. Kiran Bedi used to travel extensively for her tennis tournaments so she needed a concession form, but she had to stand for hours in this nearly static queue.
One day she finally lost her patience and boldly said to the Secretary, that thanks to his ways, she has learnt not to ever waste anyone else’s time. Hearing this, the Secretary got furious and later intentionally deprived her of participating in Wimbledon, although she was eligible for it. Kiran Bedi was heartbroken for a while, but remained thankful to this gentleman for teaching her to value others’ time.
