“A Country is a Paradise when it is under a good Leadership; Paradise could become hellish when there is no governance”.

“Democracy is pretentious, unless we emancipate from the political system, it will disparage the concept of democracy”.

“Politics and Democracy are two different ideologies. They are inseparably mixed; a suitable mechanism or a solvent is needed to elute this mixture for the good of this Country. Perhaps this The New Constitution of India 2018, may be a chromatography to eluting the mixture.”

The Author says: ‘he has not done anything that infringes the fundamental rights of anyone, No derogation of fundamental rights, No inconsistency affecting the scope of Article 13(1) or Article 13(2) of the Constitution of India. Even assuming that some of them are, it is for the Government and the Courts to apply the Doctrine of Eclipse or on the Doctrine of Severability. Mechanical interpretation on this ‘New Constitution of India 2018’ might be atrophied or fossilised, but the organic might not !’.

It is up to the Government to study, to find a way to implement without affecting the earlier judgements of High Court and Supreme Court on the Constitutional issues. Two main issues are involved:-

1) Whether the substance contained in this ‘The New Constitution of India 2018’ is derogative of fundamental rights within the meaning of Article 13(1) or under Article 13 (2)?

2) Whether the Parliament is having power to exercise its constitutional authority by way of addition, variation or repeal any provision as contemplated under Article 368 of the Constitution?

‘The New Constitution of India 2018’ helps a lame dog over the stile, to emancipate or unshackling the political system which disparaged the democracy in this country.

The Author, 72 years of age, is with 43 years of experience as an Advocate. He is Senior Member in the Bar and Notary in Tamil Nadu. He is an Advocate on roll in the Supreme Court (OS) New Delhi.

About the Book:

The book is all about the essential information that one must know about our country and its laws. Right from the formation, to the rights that one has been bestowed with, members of parliaments, their salaries, and much more – the book tells everything important.

Writing & Narration:

Writing & narration – both these parts are good enough in the book. After all, that’s what we can expect from a lawyer, isn’t it?

Title & Cover:

Title is relevant and the cover is quite simple, which is good.


  • Good attempt at explaining everything about the law
  • In-depth knowledge
  • Perfect coverage of every topic


Nothing bad could be found in the book

My Verdict:

If there is one thing that a layman lacks is the profound understanding of the country’s laws. And, this book covers everything. So, if you don’t have enough time to sit and research everything that you should know, read this book and that would be enough.
