Not at all like the Constitutions of the USA, Canada or even Australia, Indian Constitution begins with a detailed Preamble.
The Preamble does not give any power, but rather it gives a heading and a reason to the Constitution.
Commonly, Preamble isn't viewed as the piece of the statute and prior was not considered as shaping the piece of Indian Constitution. (Refer to In re Berubari Union and Exchange of Enclaves, AIR 1960 SC 845) But this view is no longer in presence.
The Preamble is viewed as an intergral part of the Constitution and the Honorable Supreme Court has alluded to it a few times while deciphering the arrangements of the Constitution. In the 1973 point of interest instance of Kesavananda Bharati v. Kerala state (AIR 1973 SC 1461), most of the judges of the Bench set out that the Preamble forms a piece of the Constitution.
IN OUR CONSTITUENT ASSEMBLY this twenty-sixth day of November, 1949, do HEREBY ADOPT, ENACT AND GIVE TO OURSELVES THIS CONSTITUTION."
Sovereign, Socialist, Secular, Democratic, Justice, Liberty, Equality and Fraternity these are not simply words, they are outlines the entire Constitution.
The Preamble contain the essential logic and key qualities poltical, good and religious on which the Constitution is based. It speaks to the aggregate musings and vision of the establishing fathers of the Nation.
As Pandit Thakur Das Bhargava, an individual from Constituent Assembly, summed up the Preamble in the accompanying words: ' The Preamble is the most valuable piece of the Constitution. It is soul of the Constitution. It is a key to the Constitution. It is gem set in the Constitution. It is appropriate measuring stick with which one can quantify the value of the Constitution.'
Jai Hind!! Jai Bharat!!
