Rights are defined as basic human freedoms which every Indian citizen has the right
to enjoy for a proper and harmonious development of personality.
• These rights universally apply to all citizens, irrespective of race, place of birth,
religion, caste or gender.
• The fundamental duties are defined as the moral obligations of all citizens to help
promote a spirit of patriotism and to uphold the unity of India.
• Rights and duties are two wheels on which the chariot of life moves forward
smoothly. Life can become smoother if rights and duties go hand in hand and
become complementary to each other.
