Life and death are the two inevitable truth and are closely related to each other. the Indian citizens are blessed with the Fundamental Rights so as to protect them from any unjust treatment and to allow them to live their life with freedom under reasonable restrictions. The most important rather the base of all other rights rights is the Right To Live with Personal Liberty and Human Dignity under Article 21 of the Indian Constitution. it is often argued that when the Constitution has given its citizens the freedom to live their life according to their own will then why can't such right be exercised by a person experiencing excruciating pain due to terminal illness upon the person's own desire. Restraining a person from dying due to terminal illness breaches not only their Right to Live with Personal Liberty but also disown them to have a dignified life because lying in the bed with such unbearable pain is equal to mere body without soul. So, to allow a person to die peacefully rather than such painful life, euthanasia should be legalized in India which is deemed as an urgent need as well as demand of the hour in India.
