·        These principles of liberty equality and fraternity are not to be treated as separate items in a trinity. They form a union of trinity in the sense that to divorce one from the other is to defeat the very purpose of democracy.

·        Significantly, the responsibility for bringing this about does not rest with the state but seems to be the responsibility of the individual citizen

·        The idea of fraternity is based on the view that people have responsibilities to each other.

·        It is economic on one plane; on others it is regional, caste and religious. Some are spelt out, others understated, still others assumed.

·        Recent studies on religious minorities who constitute around 20% of India’s population have traced discrimination relating to them to perceptions that relate to the very origins of thinking that brought about the partition of August 1947.

·        Article 51A(e) of the Constitution does not differentiate between citizens on any of the categories mentioned above and makes it an all-encompassing duty.

·        Its ambit therefore is universal; its observance, by the same logic, has to begin at the base of the ladder of citizenship rather than the top but does not spare the leadership from the obligation to promote and practise it.
