Description

The Constitution of India forms the basis of the republic and influences all aspects of our lives. But is it really that powerful? Suman Joshi and Apurva Kumar talk about the role common citizens played in building constitutional values through the years.

This discussion is premised on Rohit De's book, A People's Constitution, in which the author challenges the notion that the constitution was a document created by the elites and for the elites.

Further readings:

  1. What is constitutional morality? By Pratap Bhanu Mehta

  2. Rohit De - Law and Life in India

  3. Two cases from the book, Hanif Quereshi vs state of Bihar and Pesikaka vs state of Bombay
