This classroom module has been developed by Mayukhi Ghosh for History for Peace in collaboration with Alternative Law Forum. This classroom module has been drawn from an Alternative Law Forum resource, Preamble - A Brief Introduction, and offers you an interactive classroom-friendly framework to engage your students with the Preamble to the Indian Constitution closely and critically.


'The Constitution of India has become a popular tool in protests and is often introduced by enthusiastic dissidents in protest marches or by politicians to substantiate a point in fervent debates. This resurgence of interest in the Constitution is emblematic of a constitutional vision of the nation—the India our Constituent Assembly envisioned when drafting the Constitution.

The Preamble embodies the ethos of the nation and encompasses values that define India. This module seeks to understand these values by establishing the Preamble as a product of struggle, analyzing the documents that were precursors to the Constitution and by studying the Preamble as interpreted by the Supreme Court and Popular movements. It is designed to make students understand the evolving nature of the Constitution by allowing them to place themselves in the shoes of the Constituent Assembly.

Freedom, Justice and Rights are nuanced subjects and the module seeks to help students comprehend such nuances. Understanding, respecting and internalising the values codified in the Preamble allows students to wield the power bestowed upon them by the Constitution as citizens.'
