On 26th November we observed our Constitution Day which is also known as
National Law Day. We have a lot to reflect on what has been going wrong
with the very guiding principles of our Constitution being flouted with
impunity. On 26 November 1949, the Constituent Assembly adopted our
Constitution which was drafted by a committee headed by Babasaheb Ambedkar
who played a pivotal role in its drafting.

Perhaps the founding fathers never visualized or anticipated that Money and
Muscle Power would one day rule the roost in our country’s political arena
with persons lacking morals and ethics assuming Power. So now there is a
need for urgent amendments to our Constitution to safeguard those
fundamentals while leaving no grey areas for manipulation and towards this
the Legislature, Executive and Judiciary must look within.

The loopholes that have crept in the Anti-Defection law must be plugged.
The Autonomy of the Reserve Bank, Election Commission, Enforcement
Directorate and the CBI must be restored. And more importantly the very
vital Independence of the Judiciary can never ever be compromised. Let us
all sincerely commit to protect and ensure that the doctrine of our
Constitution is strictly adhered to in letter and spirit with no room for
fudging or fraud.  Only then will there be something to rejoice and
celebrate on our Constitution Day.
