The man who literally wrote India’s Constitution

When the draft of the constitution of India was ready, the GOI approached the renowned calligrapher Prem Behari Raizada with the proposal of hand-writing the constitution in a flowing italic style.

He refused any payment for his hard and patient work. However, he wanted to write his name on every page of the Constitution. The last page must contain his name along with his grandfather’s name. Granting his request, the GOI entrusted with Prem Behari.
The Constitution had a total of 395 articles, 8 schedules, and a preamble. It took Prem Bihari 6 months to complete this work. 432 pen-holder nibs used in this entire process. The finished manuscript consisted of 251 pages and weighed 3.75 kg. Image

Sr. Adv Darius Khambata: Ours is a magnificent Constitution. It encapsulates respect for fundamental rights, institutions, separation of powers and so many other things. It is a document that can and must unify us.
Khambata: The Constitution gives us a template within which we can learn to respect each other. The 'Idea of India' is reposed in our Constitution, summarised in our Preamble.
