Essentially all that is contained in part IV- A of the Constitution is just a codification of tasks integral to Indian way of life. Critically examine the Statement.

Hint: The question is about importance of the fundamental duties and examines the statement critically (i.e., It is Indian way of life, but it may be much more).
|Introduction (I): Talk about fundamental duties and Part 4A.|
Body (B): 1) In a box you can mention major duties.
2) First talk how it is codification of Indian way of life and relate it with duties (tolerance, brotherhood, Care of environment, Rights complemented by duties etc).
3) Talk about FDs are much more than mere codification of Indian way of life. It is a moral code, set of responsibilities which a person has as a result of being citizenship, global citizenship in current context through protection of wildlife and forests etc.
Conclusion (C): FDs though non-enforceable like DPSPs are significant as even SC held that the Parliament can make laws to implement it. It combines rights with the duties.
