Prem Chandra, Vaibhav Goel Bhartiya

Pages: 34-58


It is common phenomenon, all over the country, particularly since independence from the clutches of the colonial power of the British Empire, to witness and experience ever growing unceasing quest for a dynamic and just new social order on this sacred sanctum of the Mother India. There is ever growing unceasing quest for the new social order because of the tremendous fillip given to the revolutionary rising expectations created in the minds of the common people due to the ceaseless efforts, in arousing term to rise form slumber, made by Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, Jawaharlal Nehru and host of others. The struggle started much before independence in arousing an awareness amongst the masses for their dignity, freedom and independence. Mahatma Gandhi, who lived half-clad, endeavored to symbolize the poverty of the people. Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar struggled for equitable sharing of political power by all sections of the Indian society and he wanted to establish “State Socialism” and Jawaharlal Nehru believed in establishing a new society on the foundation of the socialism. Human freedoms necessary for dignity of the man are explicitly incorporated in the constitution. One of the human freedoms called the right to property finds place.
