What did those three hundred individuals who drafted the Indian Constitution want India to be? How far or close are we to achieving that radical vision of liberty, equality, and freedom shown by BR Ambedkar?

The Longest Constitution podcast is about the people of India and their Constitution. And achieving the constitutional vision of freedom, equality, and dignity, doesn't come without a fight. This show is not about just leaders and prime ministers, but husbands and wives, feminists and forest dwellers, dissidents, and lawyers. And it is up to us Indians to fight, debate, argue, and achieve these visions.
