I am not understanding evidence law. I am trying now and then but I don't know why I am not able to understand it maybe it's because of language or there can be other reasons too. Help me.

You are right the language of Indian Evidence Act, 1872 is as such that it becomes difficult to conceive till you apply it in particular circumstances. During longer period of practice you will find it is very much required, essential and very interesting subject.

In an attempt to make a simplified introductory note on Indian Evidence Act, I prepared a 22 page write up titled "Indian Evidence Act in a Nutshell" .
Kindly see whether it is of any help to you in understanding it. If you can make out a broad grasp of the three parts of the act and their interrelationship, it would be easier for you to expand your understanding of it.
The beauty of the drafting of the evidence act is that no unnecessary word is used in its drafting.
The main problem for us in learning it is that we are familiar more with a different kind of Indian drafting which is abundant with unnecessary words, pompous frills and circular constructions.
We live in a world where our supreme court issues judgements running into 1500 pages which could be said in one-tenth of their length. If so, people would have read them.
The write up is available at http://lawwatch.in/2020/07/20/IEA%20in%20a%20Nutshell/
