Our Constitution is prolix—a cliched comment—but it is concise in content and elaborate in its arrangement. The constitutional concision should not cost us precision. It did not. The Framers—the Constituent Assembly—comprising stellar scholars of the age, have gifted, rather dedicated, to the nation what could be proudly proclaimed as the most comprehensive, yet not complex; most elaborate, yet not meandering; most adaptive, yet not ambiguous, Constitution. They aimed it to endure for all times to come and to serve all generations to succeed. It has not belied their hopes. If there fillings—and there are, more charitably, shortcomings—they are ours, those who work it. The Commentaries on the Constitution of India are aplenty; some are multivolume and some slim. M. P. Jain's Constitutional Law, a classic by any classification, fits the bill in both the categories: it is two-volume hardbound and single-volume paperbound. Bearing true testimony to the scholarship of M. P. Jain, an eminent constitutional and administrative laws exponent, this commentary, now in your hands, has been as enduring as the document it expounds. The illustrious author and the successive revising authors have been unceasing in their efforts to make the book ever relevant and ever reliant. The commentary, as we have noticed—and read ourselves as students, too—is simple in its scheme and profound in its treatment.
