Key Words In The Preamble 

this is key words of preamble in details:


The term "Sovereign™" which is proclaimed by the Preamble means that India has its own independent authority and it is not a dominion of any other external power. In the country, the legislature has the power to make laws which is subjected to certain limitations.


The term "Socialist™" was added in the Preamble by 42nd Amendment, 1976 which means the achievement of socialist ends through democratic means. It is basically a "Democratic Socialism™" that holds faith in a mixed economy where both private and public sectors co-exist side by side. 


The term "Secular™" was incorporated in the Preamble by 42nd Constitutional Amendment, 1976 which means that all the religions in India get equal respect, protection and support from the state. 


The term "Democratic™" implies that the Constitution of India has an established form of Constitution which gets its authority from the will of the people expressed in an election.


The term "Republic™" indicates that the head of the state is elected by the people directly or indirectly. In India, the President is the head of the state and he is elected indirectly by the people.

Divide and rule politics:

Bangla pokkho Movement:

A political party called 'Bangla Pokkho' has become active in West Bengal against non-Bengalis. They demanded that in order to live in Bengal, Bengali language should be given first priority and everyone should learn Bengali language. This is not a baseless claim at al. But this is a weak claim. Because it is resisting sovereignty and brotherhood which is against our Indian Constitution. It may be that, those who have become so passionate about the Bengali language today. May at some point demand a new country for Bengalis.

Gorkhaland Movement

As in 'North Bengal', 'Gorkhaland' has demanded a new state of Nepali Gorkha people. And in the demand of this Gorkhaland, they have unnecessarily oppressed the Bengalis in different places. During the Gorkhaland movement, the entire traffic from Siliguri to Darjeeling was closed. Many of the Nepalese expressed hostility towards the Bengalis and when they saw the Bengalis they teased them in various ways. On the contrary, the Bengalis also lost their sense of brotherhood towards the Nepalis. Fortunately the Gorkhaland movement was not successful so North Bengal is very powerful today.

Free Kashmir Movement

We can see another example of Kashmir. When the free Kashmir movement was in full swing, the whole of Kashmir was covered with stones, bullet and bloodshed. It is true that the Free Kashmir Movement has failed today and some people feel the pain of failure but the common people are very safe there with their family.

What we can do?

Such conflicts have been going on for ages and future generations may have to see such things in future too. So we must always keep in mind that we are nothing but Indians. I am not Bengali, I am not Bihari, Punjabi, Haryanvi, Sindhi etc. we are Indian.
