Mr.Misra, a 1977(RR) IPS officer from UP cadre, retired in 2012. He had a Masters in Botany
and a gold medal in law, from Allahabad University.

in 1991….when he single handedly took the formidable western U.P. mafia, head
As ADG STF, he was instrumental in elimination of dreaded inter-state bandit Dadua , who spelled terror in UP and MP for well over three decades.

He created history of sorts in 2007 as the chairperson of a committee, inquiring
into the “infamous police recruitment scam” of UP.  The report lead to registration of more than 40 criminal cases against 25 senior police officials,on charges of corruption and malpractices.
His findings paved the way for a
complete overhaul of the police recruitment process in UP. The new system was
lauded by the union government and is being replicated in several other places.
Widely regarded for his social concerns, Misra’s efforts have been formally
recognised & commended by the Uttar Pradesh government for his contribution, in
treatment & rehabilitation of more than hundred and fifty mentally challenged, wandering destitute men and women, picked up from the streets of  Lucknow.He is the only police officer in the country, twice nominated by the Govt. of India as
an executive member of the Animal Welfare Board of India, in recognition of his
work towards animal welfare.He initiated a clean Gomti drive along with a few friends in 1999, through
voluntary ‘Shramdan’.  The endeavour drew appreciation from  the then prime
minister and formed the blueprint of the official ‘Gomti Action Plan’. Same

neglected parks and water bodies in Lucknow.

He had successfully spearheaded the anti-polythene campaign and
anti-cracker drive during Diwali in Lucknow and Jabalpur.

  2. I am from ghaziabad and I do remember Mr. Misra’s daring acts from the news and his closed acquaintances who are my close friends. Salute to such an IPS officer who is an example for the nation to follow. Wish I can join the forces now and do something for my nation, the corrupt cities specially. But age factor turns me down. Wish to meet him soon when I travel back to India next year.

  7. Respected Shri Mishra JI,
    I am impressed by your life and philosophy of life. You have lived your life with integrity, love, compassion and national unity and progress. Today for the first time I watched a short 7 minute video of you speaking about sameness in the essence of all religions. The video was “God in Bible Islam and Sanatan Dharma.”. I followed the leads from the video and found out the speaker name, i.e. you and then I looked up more about your activities and life. May God bless you with a long life and resources and help you build the youth for building our nation.

    I could not find out much about your current work or whether you have an organization set up to do your mission (NGO type). Please let us know what ever you can. Last thing I saw somewhere that Yogi JI had appointed you to some New Vrindavan development board.

    My sincere best wishes to you.

  8. Dear Misra ji,
    I was born and raised in Sirsa, Meja Tehseel in Allahabad District. I live in the USA with my family. We are following Brahmakurari organization here in the USA. My nephew sent me one of your videos that talked about religious fighting over trivial matters. We understand the concept of the soul and we practice Rajyoga meditation. It was very nice to hear about our nirakari and nirankari param pita parmeshwar from your point of view. You have been doing excellent service to the country. I found out about you today only. I will start following your messages on YouTube. Om Shanti 🙏🙏


  9. I recently saw some videos of Shri S Misra, each one of them are full of patriotism and love for India.
    I really wish if I can work with him to establish many rotten systems in our society.
    I hail from Bihar and now settled in Mumbai but have lots of wishes to do some good work for biharies and similar social issues.
    May God give me an opportunity to meet Shri Misra once.

  10. Saw your inspiring speech on YouTube regarding the one true source of all religions.Thank you for sharing your beautiful and enlightening thoughts.
    It is not surprising this comes from you.
    I know you well from your days as SP city Aligarh … the volleyball match you took part Police Vs PAC . Also punishing e’ve teasers near girls college.
    My Dad was posted there as Commandant 38th bn PAC … Late Mr SKA Rizvi.
    Feels great to know about You and your thoughts and accomplishments.
    May God keep you happy and healthy

  11. Dear Sir, I heard you on a video shared among friends. You talked of the single path to salvation. You said people spend on Diwali,abolition of Sati Praths and how,all religions are equal. I would be happy if you could dwell on subjects like Dar-ul-Islam, Dar-ul-Hurb,words like kaffir,jihad,umma,conversions. It is extremely easy for all of us Hindus to condemn our own faith and degrade ourselves but nobody has guts to talk about political Islam surreptitiously operating in India to make Dar-ul-Islam. I would suggest when you condemn Hindu religion, please always talk about political Islam, Umma, how it creates social divide and conflict. If you address these issues in totality, you may be doing justice. I know you can’t dare to address it because then secularism will be under severe threat. We cannot and should never shy of problems. Let us address them and get an answer.
    Thanks and Best regards,

    Shyam Sharma


  12. Dear Sir,
    I came across to see your 7 mins video on equality of religions. After a very long time, I am so impressed with someone’s views on this topic. I also believe in the philosophy of ‘अद्वैत’. Your video was forwarded to me by my father. I am a born brahmin and received this religious philosophy from my father himself and accepted it after a lot of ‘मंथन’.
    Can I have your email-ID to share the thoughts?
    I am currently placed in Jamshedpur.


  13. Hello Sir
    My name is Bhushan Tyagi belongs to District Ghaziabad. I always used to remember you whenever I recite the Shrimad Bhagwat Gita.Your good work and elimination of goons during your tenure as SSP. Ghaziabad was known to murders,and ransom in those days I was deeply impressed the shloka of Shrimad Bhagwat Gitaji which was written in every Police station of DIstrict Ghaziabad at that time about 29 years back. परित्राणां साधुनां विनाशाय च दुष्कृताम् I used to remember you everyday.
    My Best Regards

    • Thanks Niharika, for the kind words. I am an admirer of Swami Vivekanand. Please don’t compare me to him. That would be a travesty.
      Am blessed by an enlightened Guru, Shri Devraha Baba , who is no more in a human form, but His blessings are with me.
      I wish the spiritual core of all religions is understood and accepted by the generation next, enabling the world to be in peace and harmony.
      I endeavor, to make my humble contributions to that end.
      Thanks again, for bothering to connect.


  16. Mishra Sir, I am so glad to to know all about you and your devotion and patriotism during your entire police service. How can the nation have a generation such as your character and ideology.
    This is only possible if the parents give right education to their children of being a good human first and then to be a Doctor or an Engineer or some big post holder.we the parents only want see our children become high profile person who can speak fluent English and can earn lots of money. this is our main thought process. No value for morality.
    God saves us the INDIAN. Thank you

  18. I am your admirer for your daring work done while being in police force. Indian needs to form a “think Tank ” of people like you. Age is no factor. The most important factor is the honest experience of life….”this is power”. In order to kill a six feet man what you need is six inches tongue & six inches pen.
    I would definitely like to be a part of the strenght.
