Solution

As the Indian Constitution keeps responding to the emerging circumstances and situations from time to time, almost like a human being, the Indian Constitution is known as a Living Document. The Indian Constitution continues to be effective, as it can respond to changing situations, is dynamic and is open to interpretations. It not only protects democracy, but it also allows for the evolution of new practices.
