This paper aims to examine the concept of constitutionalism and its relevance in the aftermath of the Nazi Germany incident. Despite having a written constitution, the lack of spirit of constitutionalism in Nazi Germany exposed the need for restrictions on the government to uphold individual liberties and promote the well-being of citizens. This paper seeks to present the concept of constitutionalism in a simple manner, highlighting its role in the drafting and implementation of constitutions as a set of normative guidelines. Additionally, it examines the interaction between constitutionalism and other constitutional values, such as democracy in the Indian context. The paper emphasizes the crucial role played by the judiciary in promoting constitutionalism in India since independence, and how the Indian Constitution embodies the values of constitutionalism that are essential for a truly democratic country.
