I would like to answer your question, but before that, I want to quote a line by Rabindranath Tagore, “We wrote, we sang, we acted, and we poured ourselves out on every side. There was tremendous excitement and cultural richness.”
These lines were written by him in the19th century. This will give you an idea how rich India was in terms of arts & creativity. You are right in every aspect when you said in science dominant world and it is quite actually true because this is the era of technology and science. Yet I have to say that the world is not just about science and technology
Interesting question asked. Army is one of the most noble profession. Hope you have made your mind to join army and not been forced by anybody.

The option you are considering i.e law branch in the army is a very challenging role.
In the Indian Army, law graduates (3 year course (LLB) after graduation, 5 year integrated courses after class 12) can join the JAG branch (Judge Advocate General branch) and the essential points briefly are- 55% marks from an institution recognized by Bar council of India, 21-27 yrs age, specified medical standards (height, weight, eyesight).
We have similar roles in the other forces i.e Navy and Air Force also. You may like to consider them too.
What is the reason for choosing this profession.
Anyways its your personal choice. Never the less, before you start and dream of serving the nation, I would suggest begin at the base level. Meaning, start social work in your area. Join the local corporator team and become a member and start social work. It will help you gauge your social skills.
In terms of becoming a prime minister, you need to first become a member of either Loksabha or Rajyasabha, by disclosing your assets. You then contest election and the winning party selects one member from amongst them
