The fundamental obligations are not just purely technical.They were designed to be the foundation for social transformation.Our framers imagined a country in which citizens are aware of their surroundings and are competent to make the right choices.”

He stressed the fact that in order to be able to contribute meaningfully to the society, citizens must first comprehend the Constitution and its organs.”It is Essential for citizens to comprehend the Constitution as well as its subtleties, as well as the powers and limitations.This is the reason I am interested in spreading the Constitutional culture in India”, he declared.

He declared that the fight to achieve Independence was not just for the freedom of colonial rule.”It was to ensure the rights of all.It was to lay the basis of democracy.The foundation was laid by years of meticulous deliberation in the assembly of constituents which resulted in the most scientific and progressive document i.e.the Constitution of India”, said Justice Ramana.

He said that within the Constitutional framework each organ has been assigned an obligation that is unique to it.The idea that justice is only the obligation of the court has been dispelled in the Article 38 of the Indian Constitution which mandates the state to ensure justice both economic, social and political.”Every act of every organ of the state must be in the spirit of the Constitution.I would like to point out that all three bodies of the State, i.e., the legislature, executive and the judiciary are equally stewards of the Constitutional trust.” stated the Chief Justice.

He said that the Indian judiciary, from its beginning, has worked to meet the constitutional requirements and through interpretative exercise has also strengthened independent institutions, such as the Election Commission, CVC, CAG and the list goes on.”By the interpretation of statutes the courts have acted according to the real intention of legislators.The courts have given life to the Statutes by making them relevant to the present” Justice Ramana said.Justice Ramana.

He added that the system of judicial justice in the country is unique not just because of its dedication to the Constitution’s written form and its spirit however, but also because of the faith that is displayed by the public in the system.

He said that people have faith that they will receive justice and relief from the courts, and this gives them the confidence to resolve disputes and they are aware that if problems arise, the justice system will be there for them.

He stated, “The Indian Supreme Court is the guardian of the Constitution in the largest democracy in the world.

The Constitution confers wide-ranging powers and authority to the Supreme Court to do complete justice.The power to execute absolute justice, as per Article 142 is a way to live out the principle of the Indian Supreme Court, Yato Dharma Sthato Jaya, which is, “where there is Dharma and victory, there is victory”.

Justice Ramana said it has been my personal mission to promote the Indianization of the judiciary and that the system is truly the property of the people “when we respect and celebrate our diverse culture”.He added, “While it is the obligation of the courts of constitutional law to defend fundamental freedoms and human rights lawyers play an important role in steering the courts in the right direction”.

Justice Ramana said he urges each citizen to be a stakeholder in our Democratic system.”We all need to live the Constitutional concept in its original spirit.Today , as I watch the Tricolour flying high over us, I can’t resist the urge to be proud and remember Keertiseshulu VenkayyaGaru, who was from Telugu land.It was he who created the identity and pride of independent India and our flag that is our national,” he said.
