1. The Land and People
“INDIA is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend and the great grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only.”Mark Twain
India has a unique culture and is one of the oldest and greatest civilizations in the world. It stretches from the snow-capped Himalayas in the north to the sun-drenched coastal villages of the south and the humid tropical forests on the southwest coast, from the fertile Brahmaputra valley on its east to the Thar Desert in the west.
It covers an area of 32,87,263 sq. km. It has achieved all-around socio-economic progress during the last so many years of its independence.
INDIA, a union of states, is a Sovereign Socialist Secular Democratic Republic with a parliamentary system of government.
The Republic is governed in terms of the Constitution, which was adopted by the Constituent Assembly on November 26, 1949, and came into force on January 26, 1950.
The Constitution which envisages a parliamentary form of government is federal in structure with unitary features. The President of India is the constitutional head of the executive of the union.
Article 74(1) of the Constitution provides that there shall be a Council of Ministers with the Prime Minister as its head to aid and advise the President who shall in the exercise of his functions, act in accordance with such advice.
The real executive power thus vests in the Council of Ministers with the Prime Minister as its head. The Council of Ministers is collectively responsible to the House of the People (Lok Sabha).
