Kiran Bedi and Pavan Choudary unveil their book Broom & Groom
India’s first woman IPS officer Dr. Kiran Bedi & Pavan Choudary launched their book Broom & Groom at Strand Book Stall today. The book Broom & Groom strives to strengthen Civility in society which is rapidly falling in the present times.
The book carries a special (rare) message from Dr APJ Abdul Kalam which also tells us what the book is, "...Broom & Groom covers manners and etiquette right from greeting a person, communication, use of elevators and mobiles, rules for queues, road manners, interacting with domestic staff, being a good teacher and also a good student. Keeping good hygiene has been brought out very nicely. Broom & Groom is a wonderful experience for me to read every page. Each page in the book is useful to improve the way of life..."
Addressing the media the authors said, "We aspire for a social renaissance of civil behaviour. And Broom & Groom is an expression of this yearning. We wish this great nation should cover up in the areas it lags and be second to none. We believe this book is the starting point of a wider mission and an evolving base of social reform. Broom & Groom should not remain a book. It must convert into a conscious movement where the people in power and the public come together and once and for all change the conditions we live in. With Broom & Groom, we have made our move and now await yours".
The authors jointly proclaimed, "Sabhyata Hamara Janam Sidhh Adhikaar Hai (Civility Is Our Birth Right)".
Anu Anand, publisher, WVPD, said, "It was a privilege and a challenge to work with two people who are so passionate in all that they do. I am also very happy that we have been able to bring the book just before the Common Wealth Games. We do hope that Broom & Groom will help its reader put his best foot forward before our guests from 54 countries during the CWG".
Dr. Sachin Vernekar, Director, Bhartiya Vidyapeeth Institute of Management & Research, who has ordered a copy of his book for each of his students says, "This is not just a book. It is a finishing school especially for Management students. Students who apply what the book suggests will make strong impressions at the interview stage and improve their professional acceptance at work".
In a nut shell, Broom & Groom endeavours to hold a mirror to us as individuals and to the society that we have collectively inherited and created. A mirror that unsparingly reflects how we behave at an interpersonal level and at a collective level. The authors have kept the message concentrated and powerful and have not soft-pedalled on issues that need addressing.
Available presently as a Hard Bound edition, the book is priced at Rs.195/-, and can be purchased online at www.flipkart.com
