Mangaluru: We are a great nation and we have given our selves a great Constitution. Need of the hour is to understand our constitution and thereby to serve our nation at the best. Educated Indians need to reach out to the underprivileged, the last, least and the lost. In this mission of becoming the voice of the voiceless, knowledge of our constitution and its provisions is the greatest support and the strength.
Indian constitution, as we all know is not just a legal document, but also an instrument of social change. After a long struggle with the British we have gained our freedom, and the fruits of our freedom struggle should to be shared with all, especially with the discriminated lot. By knowing our constitution we will undoubtedly become better and responsible citizens of this great nation. It is also a known fact that to be a responsible citizen one must have a clear picture of his rights and duties.
The Catholic Bishops' Conference of India, therefore, want every person studying in its institutions, especially Christians, to make an earnest attempt to learn and understand the constitution, its provisions and other aspects related to it. The Mangalore Diocesan Commission for lay faithful has taken a step forward. Under the dynamic leadership of Most Rev Fr J B Crasta, it has published the entire constitution of India, translated to Konkani, written in Kannada script. Renowned translators Prof Stephen Quadros Permude and Gladis Quadros Permude have done the translation.
