24th Amendment in Kesavananda Bharati v. State of Kerala case…states that

In the Kesavananda Bharati v. State of Kerala case, there was a thing called the 24th Amendment. Imagine it like a new rule book for a game. This amendment said that the government, or Parliament, can change any rule in the Constitution, even the really important ones known as “fundamental rights.” It was like saying they could change the rules of the game while playing it.

Kesavananda Bharati, a wise man, didn’t agree with this new rule. He believed that while we can update the rule book, we can’t change the basic spirit of the game. He thought there should be some rules that should never be changed, like always playing fair or treating everyone equally.

The court agreed with Kesavananda Bharati. They said that yes, we can update the rule book, but we must always keep the fundamental principles of the game, like fairness and equality, unchanged. This was a big deal because it meant that while the government can make changes, they can’t mess with the important and fair rules that make our country a good place to live.
