Recently, we celebrated Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, a glorious 75 years of India’s independence. This means that we have been an independent country for 75 years and have our own Constitution in which we set out lofty values which we as a nation would like to follow to build a new India. However, it is evident that we have taken very little action in creating awareness about these Constitutional values – we have not made the Constitution accessible for reading or making children understand/ internalise the real meaning of the constitutional values. Studies show that values are actually acquired by children between the ages of 5-7 years and our efforts as a nation, society and individuals towards achieving these values have been inadequate. This article highlights what just one person can achieve if there is the will to do so.
