Lists with This Book. Feb 15, Nandakishore Varma rated it liked it Shelves: In India, it is the time for heated debates on the constitution, and the Supreme Court is made to earn its keep with cases coming up before it which requires interpretation of the constitution every day. So I thought it high time that I read up on the constitution, if only to bring myself up-to-date on it.
This book is a good introduction: However, as you go into details, one needs a copy of the constitution as a handy reference to get the maximum out of the In India, it is the time for heated debates on the constitution, and the Supreme Court is made to earn its keep with cases coming up before it which requires interpretation of the constitution every day.
However, as you go into details, one needs a copy of the constitution as a handy reference to get the maximum out of the explanations. Fair enough, as this is a sort of textbook supposed to read by students and not a total rookie like me. But I did gain something from it – I found out that: Most of the things the right wingers say about the constitution are pure bovine excrement.
Our constitution is democratic and secular, and there is a strong leaning towards socialism. Even though the “freedom of expression” is a fundamental right, it is not absolute. In fact, it has been hedged in by so many restrictions through the first amendment that it resembles a dancer trying to do her thing with legs and hands bound.
The president has no real power at all. Equality as per our constitution is a very vague concept. There are a lot of people who are “more equal than others”. Finally, even with all its flaws, it’s a pretty strong document.
Kudos to the founding fathers of the republic, especially Dr. Ambedkar, for giving us this. It has kept us a democracy while many other such “republics” have gone the way of despotism. I will expand on this as and when I see fit. I plan to get myself educated on the constitution. Oct 02, Meera marked it as to-read. Jan 07, Abhishek rated it really liked it. Subhash Kashyap has a lot of experience in this field and has written a lot on issues facing the constitution.
The book is pretty objective and covers a good deal about the Indian constitution. Personal opinions of the author are also expressed though not enough for my liking. Reading the book will give you a good, overall feel of the Indian constitution ijdia the tight rope the makers had to walk to bring I picked up this book because I found Lakshmikanth a stape constihution UPSC preparation too boring. Reading the book will give you a good, overall feel of the Indian constitution and the tight rope the makers had to walk to bring out a constitution suitable for India.
In this sense, I would put this as a book which should be read by every Indian. Dec 08, Hossan Rose rated subhawh liked it.
It’s by no means an easy read and it’s not supposed to be. Provides valuable insights into the “soul of the country”. One of those books which you’ll have condtitution keep as reference to go back and revisit once in a while again. If you are a specific reader who reads lot on politicsthis should be the introductory material to Indian constitution.
