dear its a good topic to deal with and just needs application of common sense.
you just observe, in India a substantial part of population is illitrate and those who are literate are not even aware of the basics of law.
Law is basically meant to maintain order in the society and when the masses are not aware of the basics of Law then how they will live peacefully in the society.
most of us ignore govt. notifications on law and regulations, if the people remain updated about all this then they can get their rights enforced in govt. offices without any hurdle.
the Constitution of India has been adopted by us....you read the preamble, it starts with the words "WE THE PEOPLE OF INDIA...." so the point is when we have already adopted a law then why we should not be aware of this.
we derive our rights and duties from the law governing us, then why we should not be aware of it?

In the interest of developing socialist democracy and improving the socialist legal system, it is necessary to place the law in the hands of the masses of people so that they will know what the law is, abide by the law, acquire a sense of legality and learn to use the law as a weapon against all acts committed in violation of the Constitution and the law. This will contribute towards safeguarding the lawful rights and interests of citizens and ensuring the enforcement of the Constitution and the law. A major effort to publicize the legal system and popularize basic knowledge of law among citizens is of great significance to the consolidation of the socialist legal system, the ensurance of long-term stability in the country, the promotion of material and cultural progress in our socialist society, and the realization of our country's objectives and general task in the new period.

Rather going on in depth of law and legal machinery or ideology it is better to bring only basic things like role of citizens, need of enforcement of law, consequences of non-enforcement of law benefits of its enforcement, concept of law, procedure available in India seeking legal rights. You should conclude with the remarks that no any law can be enforced if the same is not enforced by each and every person/citizen from the core of his heart otherwise forced implementation is temporary and mockery what we are looking in India today.
