36. When rights get translated into feudal languages
A few words from the Preamble of the Constitution of India are given below. Please see:
QUOTE: JUSTICE, Social, ———; LIBERTY of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship; EQUALITY of status and opportunity; FRATERNITY assuring the dignity of the individual ——. END of QUOTE.
In this Preamble, Social justice,----------- equality in opportunity and status, brotherhood that assure the dignity of the individual....., have been very clearly mentioned in quite unequivocal terms.
It is possible to find and sense the Spirit, which includes the inner meaning, philosophy, soul, attitude, mentality and the living force encoded in the Constitution of India, from this Preamble.
It is from this essence that the Article 14: ‘Right to equality before the law’, has taken birth.
There have been a lot of discussion, writings, and intellectual clamours with regard to this Right in the higher echelons of the Indian judicial punditry.
In India, law-enforcement is attempted at not only inside the judicial courts. In any government office, even the lower grade peon would be quite interested in trying his or her hand at this. For, an opportunity to be able to use some authority over other people is a very enjoyable experience in the Indian languages.
No Judicial official or Constitutional pundit has been able to direct them to read or study or to imbibe the essence of the Article 14 of the Constitution of India. And at the same time, it is quite doubtful if these ‘learned’ pundits themselves do have any profound insight or information on this. Or else, it can be that they are aware of its essential features, but then they do not want to inform the others about them.
