West Bengal Governor K N Tripathi has said the Constitution of India reflects the idea of unity and diversity in terms of geographical, cultural and linguistic aspects, despite the country’s diversity.

“The Constitution of India has been described at times with many adjectives such as unique, flexible, dynamic. One thing is very clear, it reflects the unity of the country in terms of geographical, linguistic and cultural aspects despite the diversity,” Tripathi said while addressing the presentation ceremony of 4th Revised Edition of the book ‘Constitution of India’ by Adish C Aggarwala.

“The fundamental rights guaranteed by the Constitution can be related to the normal basic necessities of a civilised society,” he said.

Chief Justice of Calcutta High Court Manjula Chellur, who was also present at the programme, said the Constitution was a sacred book which underlines the philosophy of unity in diversity.

The Foreword to the 4th Revised Edition has been contributed by Justice H L Dattu, Chief Justice of India and an Appreciation by D V Sadananda Gowda, Union Minister of Law and Justice has been incorporated.
