We, the people of India, having solemnly resolved to constitute India
into a sovereign socialist secular democratic republic
and to secure to all its citizens
justice, social, economic, and political;
liberty of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship;
equality of status and opportunity;
and to promote among them all fraternity
assuring the dignity of the individual and the unity and integrity of the nation
in our Constituent Assembly this 26th day of November 1949, do hereby adopt, enact and give to ourselves this Constitution.
That is the preamble to our constitution. What else can I write about this 8 week long tragedy, in the middle of the lockdown, involving millions of starving fellow Indians who are walking a thousand kilometers across the country to their homes. We have seen this every day on TV. Click on the photos for news reports and analysis.
