  • Please read the various topics about the stage of implementation of Indian Constitution and try to understand the subject fully. What are the important features of Indian constitution? Justice, freedom, equality and fraternity to all citizens by its numerous provisions for their peaceful and dignified living in spite of the country's huge cultural, lingual, religious diversity.
    You should also understand the Fundamental rights and directive principles mentioned in the Constitution. How far these points are implemented in its true spirit and how many of them are not implemented and why? You should make a note of this important factor.
    Next, come Fundamental duties, How far each citizen of this country is abiding by this. This is to be properly understood. Then comes the role of central government. State governments and local bodies. How far they are following this constitution provisions in the discharging of their duties.
    You should get a clarity on these issues. Then you can make a meaningful contribution to the debate. You should be able to talk extempore and you should not give a feeling and you have mugged up the subject and releasing there. Your voice should be clear and modulate in such a way that the people will have interest in listening to you.

    always confident

  • This would definitely be a great debate as it is very sensitive and important topic. I would suggest you to read various books and articles to understand the constitution and it's laws.
    Start finding the areas where you thing the laws are not enough to handle such things and it needs some implementation.
    Focus on human rights and study what are all the human rights and are we getting such things? Study the rules and laws that our constitution has for human rights in order to have a clear vision. Analyse if it is perfect or needs to be implemented. Raise some points where you thing it should be corrected or restructured.

  • I suggest that you should first read a high school level textbook on civics to get the basic ideas and framework of our constitution. After that, you can read elaborate articles on it.

    In nutshell, the constitution is the supreme law of our nation with the help of which Govt runs the country. During the British rule, we did not have a composite constitution as different princely states had their own rules and regulations. It is only in the independent era that a complete constitution was chalked out and enacted.

    The Indian constitution provides fundamental rights to its citizens and is designed to create and run a democratic setup.

    The basic premises on which our constitution is build up is that there will be social and economic equality in our country and there will be no discrimination based on caste or gender. Every citizen will have equal rights and opportunities to get jobs and earn their livelihood.

    It further says that government will not favour any one religion. It will respect the presence of Muslims, Sikhs, Christians and any other religion that someone chooses to follow.

    After covering the above aspects you can briefly highlight the various amendments to the constitution which were time to time incorporated to bring in more clarity and precision in our constitution. It is a continuous process and it will evolve further based on the changing facade of our country in national as well as the international stage.

    Knowledge is power.

  • It is good to go through the History of the Social Science textbook which we have learned in the High school class. We will learn about the fundamental rules of the Indian constitution. DR B.R Ambedkar drafted the Indian constitution in the year 1950.

    "Earning knowledge is by sharing it with ISC and we will rectify our mistakes."

  • It is not clear at what level or class the debate is organised. If it is just a general high-school level debate or at early college level debate, then it need be approached only in a general way.
    The first to understand is what the constitution aims for.
    For this it is suggested to read the preamble and index and first introductory parts of the Constitution . The sources can be from internet or the text you may be following in this regard. That will give you the broader aims.
    One should also read the directive principles. These are the major things envisaged by Constitution to be implemented.

    But you should be thorough in your points, because it is easy for the other side to convince because there may be many shortcomings in implementation of the aims.
    In this regard you can quote the examples of many other nations which also became independent nations in similar period as our nation, but still undergoing turmoils.

    As positive points you can quote the successfully functional democracy in our nation. You can say about the political stability in our country with multi party system. The well conduct of elections from panchayat level to Parliament and people's participation in that. You may admit that there are still more to reach perfection, but we had come a lot from what we were in before independence. You can say how improved is the general overall conditions of people. You can quote about various government schemes which have helped the vulnerable sections .

    You can dwell upon the fundamental rights of equality and freedom in various parameters.. If other side brings some instances of inequality in practice, you can say that they are just aberrations and overall the citizen enjoys freedom and equality. Here you can strongly compare with other nations in the neighbourhood and others.

    It is better to go well prepared to the extent it is expected. But you should argue in a positive way and not to get entangled in unnecessary wrangles, but keep up the academic spirit of discussion.
