What is Right to Freedom? Mention different rights that come under it?


SOLUTION
Everybody loves freedom, which means absence of constraints. We want to live in society, but we want to be free. We want to do things in the way we want to do them. We don't want to be dictated by anyone. So, under the Indian Constitution all the citizens have been given the following rights: 
(i) Right to freedom of speech and expression. 
(ii) Right to assemble in a peaceful manner. 
(iii) Right to form associations and unions. 
(iv) Right to move freely throughout the country. 
(v) Right to reside in any part of the country, and 
(vi) Right to practise any profession, or to carry on any occupation, trade or business. 
Every citizen has the right to all these freedoms. Now we will study all these freedoms one by one. 
(i) Freedom of speech and expression is one of the essential features of any democracy. Everyone is free to communicate with others. We have freedom to think differently from others. We have freedom to criticise the government or the activities of the association in our conversations with our parents and relatives. But we cannot use their freedom to instigate violence against others. 
(ii) Citizens have full freedom to assemble at a place for discussions. But they are expected to maintain peace. 
(iii) Citizens have the freedom to hold meetings, processions, rallies and demonstrations on any issue. They may want to discuss a problem, exchange ideas, mobilise public support to a cause, or seek votes for a candidate or party in an election. But such meetings have to be peaceful. 
(iv) As citizens we have the freedom to travel in any part of the country. We are free to reside and settle in any part of the territory of India. 
(v) We have the right to set up base anywhere in the country. This right allows lakhs of people to migrate from villages to towns. 
(vi) The same freedom extends to choice of occupations. No one can force you to do or  not to do a certain job. Women cannot be told that some kinds of occupations are not for them.
