Oral History of the Constitution

Journalist, blogger and writer Sidin Vadukut has a series of podcasts on the oral history of the Indian constitution, beginning with the reforms of 1858. It's informative, fun and accessible. Constitutions have for too long been the preserve of experts and its particularly exciting to see ways in which it is being made legible to its citizens.  Sidin's reasons for starting the project are interesting and arise from the debate on constitutionalism that arose during the Jan Lokpal Bill agitation.

The podcasts are online here
