The Preamble of the Indian Constitution

  • It is an affirmation, an unwavering resolve, a pledge, a commitment, and a dedication for all of us.
  • The Preamble of the Constitution accurately reflects the ideal expressed in the resolution.
  • "It was indeed a way of life which recognizes equality, liberty, and fraternity as principles of life, and which cannot be separated from each other: Liberty will not be separated from equality; equality will not be separated from freedom.
  • Fraternity and liberty will not be divorced from one another.
  • Freedom would result in the domination of the few over the many if equality did not exist.
  • The individual initiative would be killed by equality without freedom.
  • Without fraternity, liberty and equality could not become the natural course of things." said B.R. Ambedkar.
  • While the Constituent Assembly was debating the Preamble, there was an argument for renaming India the "Union of Indian Socialist Republics" as if India should emulate the U.S., but the other members were unconvinced.
  • The Preamble was modified on December 18, 1976, when the government of Indira Gandhi pushed amendments to the 42nd Amendment to the Constitution.
  • This modification modified "unity of the nation" to "unity and integrity of the nation" and inserted the terms "socialist" and "secular" between "sovereign" and "democratic."
