Answer: The cases you have mentioned are very important in terms of the evolution of Indian Democracy. The fight between fundamental rights and directive principles has been viewed by many as the clash of Judiciary and Parliament.
You can get the detailed discussion of these cases from best known books on Indian Constitution such as Introduction to the Constitution of India by DD Basu, The Constitutional of India by Kagzi , M.C. Jain, Constitutional Amendments in India by Pylee , M.V; Commentary on the Constitution of India by Basu, Durga Das etc.
