This interview of Soli Sorabji focuses on the strengths and weaknesses of the Indian Constitution. Looking at the different facets of the Constitution, it tries to assess the need for it to be rewritten. Soli Sorabji insists that the people, and not the institutions provided by the Constitution, are to be blamed for failing to achieve the basic aims of the Constitution. In the course of this interview, he also discusses the legal aspects of death penalty, homosexuality, public awareness, and the right to privacy.
