Upholding the Values of the Indian Constitution
Project Constitutionalism is a non-partisan organization founded in 2019 that works to increase constitutional awareness, protect constitutional rights and strengthen constitutional governance.
India was envisioned as a country in which an exceptionally diverse citizenry would share a common way of life founded on the values of justice, equality, liberty and fraternity. This shared project came to be embodied in a living document called the Constitution of India. The Constitution created a government in which power was separated between three branches, defined what it meant to be a citizen and secured our fundamental rights.
Project Constitutionalism was founded to further the realization of the Indian Constitution, contribute to its growth and defend its supremacy. We believe in equality, the rule of law, non-violence and the separation of religion and state. We are non-partisan and believe that governmental means and ends must be constitutional.

“Being a Democratic Republic, the Constitution provides for all citizens, individually and collectively, the best fruits of democracy and ensures to them those basic conditions and freedoms which alone made life secure, significant and productive.”

"However good a Constitution may be, if those who are implementing it are not good, it will prove to be bad. However bad a Constitution may be, if those implementing it are good, it will prove to be good."
"A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance. "
