Constitution as a work of Art - The Indian Constitution is not only a consolidation of laws and regulations. But it is a wonderful repository of India's traditional art. It gives us a sense of India’s rich tradition and culture. It’s a glimpse into our cultural heritage. Adorning the Constitution with pictures depicting Indian culture and heritage was a task entrusted to Nandalal Bose and his 40 students from Shantiniketan. Bose decorated several pages of the first manuscript with stylish borders, headers, and backdrops. He even embossed complex patterns on the edges and made the covers in gold. These embossments are reminiscent of the Ajanta murals.
The calligraphy in the book was done by Prem Behari Narain Raizada and several students of Shantiniketan worked on the borders that frame each page.
Each part of the Constitution begins with a depiction of a phase or scene from India’s national history. The artworks represent various periods in Indian history, including the Vedic Period, Mohenjodaro in the Indus Valley, the Gupta and Maurya empires as well as the Mughal era.
We are so used to seeing clauses, acts and amendments in our textbooks that we’ve forgotten about the original.
