Noted Malayalam film personalities, including actors Parvathy Thiruvothu, Rima Kallingal, Divya Prabha, Rajesh Madhavan, Kani Kusruti, directors Jeo Baby, Aashiq Abu, Kamal KM, Kunjila Mascillamani, and singer Sooraj Santhosh shared photos of the Constitution’s Preamble. 

The Preamble, as shared in the photos, say: “We the people of India, having solemnly resolved to constitute India a into a Sovereign, Socialist,  Secular, Democratic, Republic and to secure to all its citizens:  

Justice, social, economic and political; 

Liberty of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship;

in our Constituent Assembly, this twenty-sixth day of November, 1949 do Hereby Adopt, Enact and give to ourselves this Constitution.”
