The en:Indian Constitution en:preamble

Date 1948-49 (illuminated and calligraphed),
Source Originally from en.wikipedia; description page is/was here. Beohar Rammanohar Sinha illuminated, beautified and decorated the original manuscript calligraphed by Prem Behari Narain Raizada. Beohar Rammanohar Sinha's legible short-signature in Devanagari-script as Ram on the Preamble-page (lower-right corner within the outermost border-design), and as Rammanohar on other pages of the Constitution bear unambiguous testimony to this fact. He was the favorite disciple of Nandalal Bose. After finishing the Constitution, some leftover art-material was carefully preserved by the artist which he bequeathed to his son Beohar Dr Anupam Sinha.
Author Illumination/ornamentation by Beohar Rammanohar Sinha, calligraphy by Prem Behari Narain Raizada.
