blackline
The Constitution of India is the supreme law of the nation. It explicitly lays down the framework defining basic principles pertaining to governance, establishes the structure, procedures, powers, and duties of government institutions, and sets out fundamental rights, directive principles, and the duties of citizens. It is the longest written constitution in the world. Constitution is a living document, an instrument which makes the government system work. Its flexibility lies in its amendments.

The Directive Principles of State Policy is an important component of the Indian Constitution. Although these principles are meant to be "fundamental in the governance of the country," they are not legally enforceable. Instead, they are guidelines for creating a social order characterized by social, economic, and political justice, liberty, equality, and fraternity as enunciated in the preamble of the constitution.
