Description
No reading of any Constitution can be complete without reading it from the beginning to the end. While the end may expand, or alter, the point of commencement can never change. It is the Preamble wherefrom the Constitution commences. Hence, the significance of the Preamble. It is no exaggeration to say that the Preamble to the Constitution of India is its spirit and backbone. The Preamble pervades through and inspires all the provisions of the Constitution. It is also the quintessence of the Constitution. Assembly it has enabled the Constitution to stand erect — neither bending nor breaking. Hundreds of judicial pronouncements made by stalwarts testify to the Constitution of India having stood like a rock facing the splash and floods of stormy waters; the waters have flown by but the Constitution and its Preamble  have not swayed away.
