The Longest Constitution with Priya Mirza
What did those three hundred men and a handful of women who drafted our Constitution want India to be? How far or close are we to achieving that radical vision of liberty, equality and freedom. These ideas sound great but what does it really mean to us, as we go about living our lives?
This podcast is about people and the constitution. And that to achieve the Constitutional vision of freedom, equality and dignity, doesn't come without a fight. In each episode, we look at how the Constitution has transformed lives. This show is not about just leaders and prime ministers, but husbands and wives, feminists and forest dwellers, dissidents and lawyers. It has been up to Indians to fight, debate, argue and achieve these visions.
And yet, we have a long way to go. The making of a nation is always a work in progress. Join the journey of the nation. This is one show everyone needs to listen to! Every week, The Longest Constitution, gives a small peek into what the ideals and provisions of our constitution mean. From taxes to language, to food to sanitary napkins, to reservations to religious freedoms. This show looks at the machinery of the constitution and ‘we the people’.
