India Gets Its First ‘Constitution Park’
JAIPUR, (IANS) – The country’s first Constitution Park has been set up at the Raj Bhavan in Rajasthan. In this park, the Constitution has been explained via sculptures and artwork. The entire park has been designed on the theme of the artwork which was used in the first original copy of the Indian Constitution.
The park also depicts the first original copy of the Constitution, the Constituent Assembly, and its 15 women members through stone art.
Along with the ancient Nalanda University, Akbar’s court and Jhansi’s Rani Lakshmibai and Tipu Sultan who fought the British also feature in the park.
Akbar’s court shows that it was the beginning of giving permanent jobs in the government. At that time royal jobs started on the lines of today’s All India Service.
The entire journey of the making of the Constitution is depicted; right from the Cabinet Mission to the formation of the Constituent Assembly, the meetings and debates in the first Constituent Assembly, along with famous members of the Constituent Assembly.
There are statues of Dr BR Ambedkar, the country’s first President Rajendra Prasad, the first Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru along with a draft copy of the Constitution.
The Constitution Park will soon be open to the public.
