Polity Doubts from Oxford Handbook of the Indian Constitution

Hi forum guys.
Kindly jump to the last few posts for the prevailing doubts. B)
Just started reading this seminal work. Not a law or pub-ad sudent. I'll keep posting my doubts here.
Will be grateful if anyone interested could clarify them.

    Jurisprudence in simplest terms would mean body of knowledge of law. There are people who, like several judges who by delving deep into several issues, may have refined understanding of law on certaim subjects.

    They would be known to contribute to jueisprudence. They would also be called luminaries of Jurisprudence.

    Demosprudence is again used in law only as of now and deals with legal excercises that deal with social causes or movements and try to bring changes in legal system through them.


    Demosprudence would also mean that courts act not only like dispute resolution body when cases come to them, but meddle leading to certain laws.

    For example, the Courts ruling on Jallikattu led to a huge public protest which led to amendments in law ( through an ordinance )


    Correct me if i am wrong.

    Parts of Indian Constition that do not adhere to liberalism would be those that have to do with a) giving directions to state to be socialistic instead.

    b) Puts any restrictions on individual freedom. Fundamental Duties for example are generally not part of liberal democracies.
