"However good a Constitution may be, if those who are implementing it are not good, it will prove to be bad. However bad a Constitution may be, if those implementing it are good, it will prove to be good."-B. R. Ambedkar

India, also known as Bharat is the world’s largest democracy and second most populous country. We follow Lincoln’s formula of democracy, ‘a government of the people, for the people and by the people’. Along with democracy the essence of a Sovereign, Socialist, Secular and Republic nation runs throughout the Constitution of India. Constitution is a written document which defines the rights and duties of its citizens; and lays down the duties, powers and procedures of the government. The Constituent Assembly on 26th January 1950 endowed us with the Constitution which secures to all its citizens the equality of status and opportunity, furthermore it guarantees the freedom of thought, expression, faith and worship regardless of any discrimination. Ours is the world’s lengthiest written Constitution, it originally commenced with 395 Articles in 22 parts and 8 schedules which has now upgraded to 448 Articles in 25 parts and 12 schedules with 101 amendments.

About The Centre
