The Spirit of the Constitution

“If the Indian constitution is our heritage bequeathed to us by our founding fathers, no less are we, the people of India, the trustees and custodians of the values which pulsate within its provisions! A constitution is not a parchment of paper, it is a way of life and has to be lived up to. Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty and in the final analysis, its only keepers are the people.”

– Justice Khanna in Making of India’s Constitution.

One thought on “The Spirit of the Constitution

  1. “A constitution is not a parchment of paper, it is a way of life and has to be lived up to…” very true, and issues we have here in the USA and the interpretation of just what the constitution says…politics gets in the way with just about everything.
