In this book there is an unprecedented effort to lucidly demonstrate that the basic features of present Constitution have been taken out from the Vedic concepts which included truth and non-violence. Heretofore the Sources of our Constitution were described as Western constitutions/acts none of which existed before 18th Century. Details in the book, however, show that the Framers, mindful of Britishers` cultural and divisive policies, had drawn light  from the Eternal Vedas, Upnishads and subsequent scriptures, and that even before 18th Century there used to be an ideal governance. As per, Rigveda,III.38.6 God enjoins that the governor and the governed (we the people) should co-operate in fostering prosperity and enlightenment by establishing ideal assemblies comprised of righteous and expert members who would also select the best out of them as their king and all of them being always answerable to the people. Such assemblies were to frame Constitution with constitutional guarantees. It was required that the set up so organized should guarantee to all the subjects freedom, better standard of living, education and righteous way of life and by providing men (and women) with all-round education, liberty, piety, training, wealth etc. The wise recognized law as Dharma. Dharma is morality. It is a mould to promote prudent behavior based on justice and fair-play and the authority of the sriptures. The author has azlso supported his view on eternal liberties/rights and the asemblies of Vedic Era with appropriate citations of the Apex Court cases. Luminaries have also expressed that the book becomes a Bible, Gita and Quran for the Students of Constitutional Law and that it is worthy of being studied not only by students of law but also a must read by Research Scholars, Constitutional lawyers and all the Citizens to know their rich heritage and be proud of it.
