Republic Day 2020: Fundamental Rights And Duties of Indian Citizens Under Constitution of India.
-The Indian Constitution has been the beacon of light to both lawmakers and the common citizens. Its fundamental framework has remained unchanged for over seven decades. The values enunciated in the Preamble continue to inspire confidence in it, considering the various amendments it has undergone.
-The origins of the Indian Constitution from which it came into being are evident from the words "We, The People of India." It is ordained by the people of India through their representatives assembled in a sovereign constituent assembly. Therefore, it is the people of India who have adopted, enacted & given the Constitution of India to themselves.
-It is important to note that the Indian Constitution was born under Mahatma Gandhi's leadership as the result of a national struggle for independence from British colonial rule. Inspired by Bapu's political ideology, by fine-tuning the promises of social equality and justice in favor of the oppressed masses, Dr. B.R. Ambedkar gave the Constitution his own stamp.
The Aims & Objectives of the Constitution
The Preamble intends that justice must be provided to every citizen irrespective of poverty, richness, caste and religion etc. The Preamble requires the abolition of all sorts of inequalities. All citizens have an equal political right, equal access to political offices & the right to vote.
Centralized and Single Consolidated System
One of the unique and special features of the Indian Constitution is that it has traditionally provided for a single consolidated system of courts to enforce both Union and State laws, despite the implementation of a federal system and the presence of Central Acts and State Acts in their respective spheres. At the pinnacle of the entire judicial system, exists the Supreme Court of India below which are the High Courts in each State or group of States. Below the High Courts lies a hierarchy of Subordinate Courts. Panchayat Courts also function in some States under various names like Nyaya Panchayat, Panchayat Adalat, Gram Kachheri, etc.

In the Indian Constitution, all the principles incorporated in the Preamble may be decided either indirectly or explicitly.
The written Constitution is thus the ‘fundamental law’ of a country. Thus, it is the wealth of command, control and checks-and-balance, in the form of accurate-information, enshrined in the Constitution of India. As enshrined in this most sacred text of the nation, every Indian on Republic Day also promises to uphold their duties and responsibilities. This is the spirit of the Constitution that makes every person so precious to it.
