Abstract: The paper deals with the dominance of egalitarianism skilfully maintained by our Constitution of India in its decorous functioning of Parliament, Executive and Judiciary. However, the study reveals as to how arduous the thought of achieving social improvements is, in a country where barbaric crimes are indispensable. The paper contains elaborate discussions on few among the multitudinous achieved social orders which involve breaking down of hierarchies and transcending everyday consciousness by the equalization of equals under Article 14,15,16 of the Constitution, importance of faith being antithetical to orthodoxy established through the Sabarimala verdict, historical dominance of the systematic reduction of gender biasness when women chose their right to vote, application of exemplary legislations like “Child Labour Prohibition and Regulation Act 1986, Factories Act, 1948” etc, introduction of 3-tier government system in being autonomous in its sphere of functioning as local self governments in rural and urban areas, instances of cleansing obscenity through visible activity on the Unnao Rape Case, abolishing triple talaq, decrimininalizing Section 377 IPC, revolutionizing the Judicial system by introduction of PIL .The study basically suggests the grandeur in the criteria of amicable settlement as social change through Constitution congealing as a single oeuvre with the three wings of the Government.
