"I have written "Samvidhaan Chaalisa" in the praise of the Constitution of India. I have tried to appreciate the spirit of the Indian Constitution in 40 verses of the chaalisa."
Really impressive work by Tripathiji to convey the spirit of Constitution! Politicians always try to show that Constitution is insufficient and want to do amendments, to get political mileage by fooling the voters. Example creation of Article 21A. It was an eyewash to fool the people. Right to Education is already embedded in Article 21. Nothing was preventing the State from providing free education, directive principles are already there. What was the need to amend Constitution unnecessarily?
Just like Right to Information is embedded in Article 19(1)a similarly RTE is embedded in Article 21, where was the need to do Amendment to Part III? Part III is the sacred most part of Constitution. This Amendment to create Article 21A is superfluous. Just a political gimmick. It creates an impression that Constitution was not adequate. It has lowered the dignity of Constitution. Constitution is not a playground in hands of legislature to achieve their political goals. Why don't lawyers file case in court to get this corrected?
I would like to draw the attention to illustrate the great spirit of our Constitution by citing a quote from Gita, which also talks about the human right of RKBA of people, which translated into English would roughly mean:
"The State that protects the nation and its people with arms, only there the people can talk about arms"
And the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in the Bill of Rights(on which the basic structure and doctrine of the Part III of our Constitution is based, please note that RKBA was also seperately enumerated as a guaranteed fundamental right in our draft Constitution and it is stil there in Article 21) says:
"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
The basic structure and doctrine conveyed by both the quote from the Gita and the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is essentially the same, which is also reflected in the Part III of our Constitution.
