The constitution was adopted in 1849. It was introduced into the legislation by the Constituent Assembly, but the Indian lawyer, politician Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar is considered its creator. He was posthumously awarded the Bharat Ratna Order, the highest state award for services to society. The constitution is the supreme legal act, which lists the foundations of the economic, political and legal systems.
Ramji Ambedkar approached the creation of the document with particular care, it did not happen in one day. He studied the constitutions of various countries, used many sources. Only after being confident in his “brainchild” did he present the project to the assembly. Until now, the country uses Ramji’s thoughts, introducing them to all corners of the country.
Curious moments about the constitution of India:
- all laws adopted in the government must be in accordance with the main legal document;
