Question 2: In her explanation of the first phase of the Constitution, ‘We, the people of India’, Leila Seth introduces the phrase, ‘including children’. What would you give importance to if you were given a role in framing the rules for governing our country?
Answer: If I were given a role in framing the rules for governing our country, I would give importance to equality and fraternity so that the future generations would be able to live in harmony and would value others as individuals.
Question 3: “But all those serious, solemn words…….how do they connect to us…..what do they mean in real life?”
Answer: For protecting the rights and values of every individual citizen of our country, those serious, solemn words have been put into our Constitution. That is why they have a deep connection with us. We encounter many instances in our everyday life, where our basic rights and values are endangered. But our constitution contains edicts and words that ensure that every human being lives a fair, safe and dignified life which is protected by the laws as laid by the Constitution.
Question 4: What is the difference between getting one’s rights and doing one’s duty? Explain with example.
Answer: There are some fundamental rights that are granted by our Constitution to every citizen of our country which are sensitive and fair to others and acceptable by the law. For example – Freedom of expression is a right and so, we can say or express whatever we want to but provided it should not hurt others and should not undermine national or cultural values.
Rights and duties go hand in hand and duty is what every citizen bound to do. For example – it is our duty to respect national anthem and protect wildlife.
Question 5: Find words from the chapter that mean the same as the words given below:
(a) Work together
(f) Favourable time
