Constitution imbibes in it a scaffold of its social, political economic structure of the nation with the inclusion of the ideals, values and the tools to achieve the desirable goals of a developing nation; therefore, there cannot be a permanent structure with regard to its concepts and tools. It has to be amended from time to time keeping in mind the experiences, necessities, failures and success being an organic/ living law. This has also been endorsed by the jurists including the Jennings that the dead should not be allowed to rule the nation forever, since the framers were not aware of the problems, necessities and experiences of future generations and nation.
