After weeks of discussions on the issue, former super cop Kiran Bedi and inspirational author Pavan Choudary decided to co-author a book on civil behaviour.  On Tuesday, ‘Broom & Groom’ was unveiled at Strand Book Stall in the City.

It is time to stop indulging in uncivil behaviour like ogling at co-passengers in the elevator, over reading material or laptop screens of others, using towel or bed sheet to wipe their shoes during a hotel stay, said Bedi.

"The book is an expression of anguish and hope. Anguish over lack of civic sense in our society. Hope, because we believe that once we become aware and sensitive, change will follow," noted Kiran Bedi, during the launch of the book.  

The co-author Pavan Choudary said, "Our leaders like Gandhiji campaigned for civility and cleanliness. He had warned our countrymen that Swaraj will stink, if we don't keep our backyards clean.”

Divided in to two sections, the book gives practical tips on appropriate ways of greeting people, communication, eating habits, use of elevators and mobiles, rules for queues, road manners, being a good teacher, student or government servant and also interaction with foreigners.
