Article 21 of the Indian constitution reinforces "right to life". Equity, dignity of a person and the right to development are the inherent rights of every human being. Life in its expanded horizon includes everything that gives meaning to a person's life including culture, heritage and tradition with dignity of a person.

Noise Pollution (V), In Re, {(2005) 5 Scc 733/Pr 10}
Article 21 guarantees right to life and includes all those aspects which make a persons life meaningful, complete and worth living. In the above case, it was held that any one who wishes to live in peace, no one can claim a right to create noise even though he does so in his own premises. Any noise, which materially interferes with the ordinary comforts of the life of the other, judged by an ordinary prudent man is nuisance.
