    1. Celebrating Indigenous Judicial System
    “God Lives In The Panch” was during the rule of Britishers in India. In this story, author is criticising the judicial system of the Britishers saying that Indians already had a rural judicial system (Panchayat) where impartial enquiry and judgments are already prevalent. When one is appointed as a Panch or as the head of the Panch, he forgets his earthly ties and gives judgement in accordance with the norms of morality, legality and ethics.

    2. Friendship & Property Disputes
    The short-story also deals with themes of friendship between Jumman Sheikh and Alagu Chowdhari and property disputes between them. Through these multiple themes, author is trying to present different facets of India but what he intends to champion primarily in this short story is the role of the Head-Panch in a Panchayati system and his responsibilities.

In this season, the trees lose their leaves which make them jolly. Autumn makes the leaves golden and weak which ultimately fall off the trees.

    Similarly the heart of the poet has just lost its dream or beloved which has made it sorrowful. It is weeping and the poet desires to listen to it. Finally she realises that it is useless to remorse on the loss of something which cannot be regained back. Like the trees move on and hope for the next spring, the poet also decides to move on and give up the mourning and remorseful feelings.

    The poet does not consider stammer as a defect. For his stammering is the very basis of language. It is the characteristic feature of human expression. Every person is unique and so is his way of speaking, understanding and interpreting words. All this helps in enriching the language.

    Whenever we stammer, we add to the God of Meanings. It is not a mistake but a sacrifice to the language. The poet is of the views that God must have stammered while creating humans. This is why we are imperfect. Hence God is also imperfect. So being imperfect is a virtue for us.
