  • India's constitution is based on the British constitutional framework but after the independence there were many changes made to come up to the aspiration and expectations of the people of this country. The main strength of our constitutions lies in its secular concerns and all the sects and religious groups in India are enjoying same privileges as regards to observing their respective religions. Indian democracy is a highly vibrant one and there is freedom of expression and right to give one's opinion or comment on any issue under discussion. Every one can fight here for the welfare of the people and Govt would allow the people to exercise their legal and personal point of view in all spheres of their lives. Democracy is said to be the best form of Govt as it is giving people freedom in many things. Many world Govt see towards India in a hope to learn from its ways and methods to apply those things in their countries.

    Due to the inherent freedom inbuilt in the Indian constitution which empowers all the citizens of this country for getting justice, we can very well say that India has a great potential for progress. Our constitution and democratic principles are like the two faces of a coin, and without each other coin has no significance.

    Knowledge is power.

  • Indian Constitution has been written and amended many times to suit and empower our democratic process and that is the reason being so every action from the government seeks the approval of the people in bigger way and thus we are marching towards the self reliant though there may be pockets of people who dislike the process. Our Constitution guarantees equal rights and existence for the all, and our democratic principles are also addressed on this way. Given the situation across the world. when people are living with fear and no guarantee of live, India is assuring free and fair living for all that is the reason being so every one wants to settle here even in any state.

    Now that the self reliant plank has been taken with great earnest and even the foreign companies wants to establish base here and go with India for self made and self marketing strategy.

    Even this challenging situation would ease

  • The constitution of India has given much emphasis on the parliament form of the government and this government ensures the establishment of a sovereign, socialist, secular and democratic republic in the country. Our constitution has provided our citizens some fundamental rights such as liberty of thoughts, expression, beliefs, faith and worship, equality of status irrespective of genders, providing justice in case of any disputes with the rules framed in the constitution and so on.
    This constitution formulated under the guidance of Dr Ambedkar allows the democracy to flourish in a natural way. In India, Democracy is a system of governance by the people's representatives elected directly or indirectly and the elected bodies offer their best services as laid down in the constitution.
    Now let us examine in what ways, both the terms constitution and democracy are self reliant with the illustration of the following points -
    1) To run our democracy, we need to refer to the constitution and without this there will be dislocation in the governance of our system.
    2) Democracy will follow the rules and regulations as laid down in the constitution showing that existence of either of these two terms would be impossible if either of the two becomes weak.
    3) Constitution would take care of the democratic set - up giving rights of people of the freedom of expression irrespective of the gender and the right to strengthen their skills in a democratic country like ours. This suggests that our constitution and democracy are self reliant.

  • The constitution is written by experts and it is the guide for the rulers to govern the country. It has given powers to the people and at the same time some responsibilities. Basically this is written taking the British Constitution as a guide. This has given very high importance to the voice of the people.
    Indian Constitution has been written in such a way this democratic set up will be given top importance. They have given many choices to public in selecting their religion and all people will have equal rights and responsibilities. There is freedom of speech, freedom of religion etc. They have been given the choice of selecting their leaders and also the government. These points made the democracy of India self-reliant.
    Constitution will be seeing that democracy will be maintained properly. There is a system of overseeing governance in the form of justice. The courts will be overseeing the function of the government and people can approach courts in case of any discrepancy in the governance. This will always keep the people always above all other points. Thus the constitution has taken care that democracy will never suffer in the country.

  • The question you asked is not very clear. What do you mean to say by "How can we relate constitution and democracy are self-reliant"?

    Democracy cannot function without a constitution so both are dependent on each other. You already know that constitution is the book that contains the principles/laws to run a country whereas democracy is the functional aspect that needs to be implemented by the government in power. If you mean are there enough provisions in the constitution to make India self-reliant then I would say definitely yes, there is no such bindings or rules that will restrict you or make you dependent on others. The main ethos of the Constitution of India is equal rights for every citizen irrespective of caste, creed or religion. Every individual can cast their vote after attaining 18 years of age and any citizen of this country can contest the election. This is a vibrant democracy and the restriction we see to carry out certain things is either because of corruption or some archaic laws. There was red-tapism earlier to start new ventures, now by using technologies in the proper way this red-tapism has come down to a minimum. Politicians do interfere in certain aspects, even in terms of the very basic needs of people but that is because of corruption. The constitution has given us the power to seek justice but because of less awareness among people, many such corruptions go unnoticed. Other than this, everything is working fine abiding by the principles of our constitution. We are the largest democracy in the world and India remains an example to other nations because of its unity despite a wide range of dissimilarities among people in terms of language, food habits, attire, religion and race.

  • According to me, the question of self-reliance on the Indian Constitution and democracy should not be considered appropriate because the necessary changes in Indian constitution, which are going to keep in mind the interest of the country, so that the integrity and unity of the country remains.
    Our constitution has many merits. There are also some flaws, which have been removed from time to time. It is a very good quality to recognize and overcome your deficiency. Our Constitution is neither too flexible nor too strict. Our country comes under the category of very liberal countries. Considered generosity is a great quality. But some countries take advantage of our generosity illegally. Which is not in the interest of our country. Being more generous makes people think of you as weak.
    The composition of the Indian constitution is also not a one-day story. It is rather a combination of many years of tireless efforts. Today's generation gets everything served in a plate, so it is not worth it. Our country has suffered slavery for British rule only for three and a half hundred years. How unbearable and painful this time has been, it is unthinkable for us.
    While making a constitution. There were many modern trends, modern difficulties and modern problems. In constitution, they have to provide solutions for all this and if they have resorted to the Government of India Act and other constitutions from different countries for this work, then they did nothing wrong, just some provisions are meant to be taken from distant constitutions.
    It cannot be assumed that the Indian constitution is not self-reliant. Many other amendments done from time to time, keeping in mind the progress of the country and the sentiments of the people.

  • "Reliant" means dependency on someone or something.

    And therefore, if I have understood correctly then being Self-reliant, the author may intend to know,
    1. Whether the Constitution and Democracy can stand independently of each other.

    The author also goes on to add to his query,
    "I want to know that how can we relate constitution and democracy are self-reliant?"

    2. The author may also intend to know that when both are self-reliant, how come they relate then?

    For me, the constitution is the very basis which dictate about how a democracy will work. How come?

    The constitution carries the fundamentals of rules and regulations and in a way define the law and limitations for the individuals and of various other institutions on about how to function and no matter what being a citizen of this country we all are abided by this. This same constitution also carries with the stringent actions which by default automatically applies when the laws are broken. This same constitution is the very basis, which is responsible for creation of post and assigning of the job responsibilities at PAN India and beyond this wherever the boundaries are maintained in the form of Ambassadors and diplomacies.

    But the important thing is that the constitution is not a God given entity and has not dropped up from the sky, but instead this has been created by the common people when elected from our votes for every five-year terms. We refer to them as MP (Member of Parliament) & MLA (Member of the Legislative Assembly).

    And therefore, the constitution is the supreme authority, but this is being managed by the politicians in terms of amendments from time to time as per their need when elected to the Parliament and even the Supreme Court of India cannot interfere then because the SC only issues the guidelines as per the existing constitution.

    What the author has asked for, could be a matter of debate but we are free to carry with our belief on the above.

    The author has not provided the ground on which he would like to have the opinion or else I would have added with some more information but hope that this would suffice to a good deal for his research.
