While limiting themselves to the broad theme of ‘Taking the Constitution to the People’, participants are free to explore the multiple contours of the theme. For instance, a podcast submission can focus exclusively on the question of if (and why) the Constitution has remained inaccessible to a larger audience, or the question of how it can be made more relevant in our everyday lives, or both.
Needless to say, a submission can answer just one or more of such questions. As has been explained below, the judging criteria are not based on the breadth of the topic covered, but on the quality of the analysis.

The Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy (‘Vidhi’) is an independent think-tank doing legal research to make better laws and improve governance for the public good. Vidhi & the Constitution Over the last 70 years that our republic has been in existence, the Constitution has shaped our country in more ways than one. Yet, constitutional vocabulary has largely remained limited to courts of law, and has failed to percolate downwards. Like many other legal instruments, the length and complexity of our Constitution has meant that it is largely inaccessible to the majority. But being the grundnorm of our polity, it is necessary that constitutional culture forms part of our everyday lives. This is especially true for the Indian Constitution, given its transformative and emancipatory capacity. The Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy is dedicated to conducting research to ensure a more nuanced understanding of the Constitution among the citizens and build a robust constitutional culture.
