She loved the subject as she felt it taught her about her role as a citizen of the country.Kiran excelled at sports particularly tennis. She won the interUniversity womens team title and bagged the national title as well as the Asian title in tennis.

Kiran fell in love with Brij Bedi a fellow student and married him in 1972. This was also the year when Kiran was selected for the Indian Police Service IPS.
