Succinctly put, the constitution forms the bedrock of the Indian nation. Therefore, to be familiar with its provisions is imperative for all citizens.
In this definitive tome, the author (who joined the bar in the year the constitution was enacted) presents his comments in a comprehensive, lucid, and systematic style. The book traces the history and the origins of India’s document of governance and explains its provisions. Some of the salient features of the book include:

- Insightfully describes the structure, powers, and directive principles of government institutions.
