I have Dataframe as below.

name    value     id
A       123         1
B       345         5
C       567         4
D       789         2

I need to create a dictionary of the form below

{
  {"name":"A",
   "value":123,
   "id":1
  },
  {"name":"B",
   "value":345,
   "id":5
  },
  {"name":"C",
   "value":567,
   "id":4
  },
  {"name":"D",
   "value":789,
   "id":2
  }
}

I tried below code, but it makes 'name' as the key.

data_set.set_index('name').to_dict(orient='list')

How to get the dictionary of the form i have mention? Do i need to iterate through rows?
