The constitution of India is supreme. We as Indians cannot, should not and must not question the tenets built therein. However, the divinity accorded to the constitution puts its veracity to question. It is ironical that there is rampant and en-mass attempt to do everything other than what the constitution defines as a democratic conduct.
As it stands the constitution is reduced to a springboard to take a push from and do everything that is unconstitutional. The executive exploits it, the judiciary takes exception of it and the people bear with everything unconstitutional and in the name of the constitution. I am intentionally avoiding substantiating these statements, by limiting them to an incident or two, the society is full of such constitutional abuses.
I wish there were a little foresight built into the constitution to check out the possibility that human weaknesses may force us the Indians to read the constitution as its mirror image. Everything we do today in India and refer to our constitution is, in fact, the opposite of it and a mirror reflection of it and in essence, reduces the constitution to be the exception rather than a rule.

The toxic atmosphere that prevails in India is one such mirroring of the constitution. This is a classic case of human weaknesses taking over a supreme democratic system. It is very symbolic and symptomatic of the decay and constitutional oversight to even think of painting everything in a given colour – profiling a city without any regards to democratic aspirations of the population and referencing it to the constitution and doing things not conforming to it.
It may not be a constitutional right to object to such negative thought process. This is where the divinity accorded to the constitution limits its purpose as a democratic executive and judicial guide and rule book for the conduct of one of the greatest and ancient civilizations in the World. It is understandable if Ramraj is enforced and RajDharma is adhered to. But again, the human hunger for power, money is overcoming the constitutional justice to a large majority. So, our national morality shuttles, in fact, rotate to our convenience. Ramraj or otherwise, the outcome has to be a material benefit and a false pride of ownership.
It is worth investigating if robots and artificial intelligence were to be the operators of the Indian constitution, how different they would be. Maybe they would stick to the rule book unlike the present human operators and administrators who are mirroring it, they would still lack, in fundamental and natural principles of human values of morality, tenacity, justice, humanity. These basics are inherent to all human beings and are visible only through the laws of the creator. Humans might have reached the moon but are still wandering around the weak manmade constitutions. Are we the only living beings of this world? Obviously not. If one were to ponder as to what constitution these living beings must be following, it comes out that they all follow the law of nature inherent in all living beings. Nature governs all their transactions. Never one finds a living thing on this earth abuse any of the natural laws except the humans. Was it such similar greed that eliminated the mightiest of the living beings?
All that it needs is to follow the imbibed human nature and any constitution how so ever intelligent windows for human greed will have to circumvent it till this manmade constitution aligns with the constitution imbibed in all human beings by the Supreme Almighty for Human conduct that has to be just and fair, even mirrored otherwise.
