Broom & Groom is an expression of both anguish and hope. Anguish over the inadequate civic sense in our society. Hope, because we believe that once we become aware and sensitive, change will follow. Broom & Groom is a mirror for self-reflection and a behavioural compass which could improve community living and enhance our social acceptance globally. The authors yearn for a social renaissance of civil behaviour. It is their dream that this book triggers a movement where the people in power and the public come together and once and for all change the conditions we live in.
Through Broom & Groom Kiran Bedi and Pavan Choudary have made their move and now await yours.


Media Reviews of Broom & Groom
The authors said the book seeks to strengthen civility in present-day Indian society. Dr. Bedi said the book was born from a sense of “anguish at the appalling conditions we live in and the undesirable behavioural attitude Indians have towards others. We have become tolerant towards incivility,” Dr. Bedi said. She said action must be taken to change this mindset.
The book has in it detailed and important instructions such as “Do not use your mobile phone in company”, “Do not quarrel among yourselves when a guest comes”, “Do not be disrespectful to your house help”, etc. The book will be translated into regional languages too. Mr. Choudary said: “We have forgotten Mahatma Gandhi's instructions on civility and cleanliness. In 63 years, the country has gone from a state of poor hygiene to a state of even poorer hygiene,” he said.

The book would help in personality building, besides improving standards of civility.
“Broom & Groom should not remain a book. It must convert into a conscious movement where people in power and the public come together and once and for all change the conditions we live in,” the authors said.
