To value and preserve the rich heritage of our composite culture, to protect and improve the natural environment including forests, lakes, rivers and wild life, and to have compassion for living creatues. To develo the scientific temper, humanism and the spirit of inquiry and reform, to safeguard public property and to abjureviolence and to strive towards excellence in all spheres of individual and collective activity so that the nation constantly rises to higher levels of endeavour and achievement.
There is no provision in the Constitution for direct enforcement of these duties. There is no sanction to prevent their violation. These Duties along with the exceptions of Fundamental Rights, limit the operation of Fundamental Rights, limit the operation of Fundamental Rights, even though they are not justificiable. Their inclusion has been justified on the basis that they would help to strengthen our democracy. However, an awareness of and adherence to these duties can hardly be brought about by writing down in the constitution. It is only through education and enlightened public opinion that a feeling of pride and responsibility towards these constitutional duties to the nation can be inculcated in the citizens.
