The Immortals Of Meluha is a thrilling story about a warrior named Shiva, who is given the responsibility to protect the empire of Meluha from dangerous intruders. This mythological novel is fast-paced, and focuses on duty, love, principles and more.
Summary Of The Book
The land of Meluha is an empire created by Lord Rama, and it is ruled by the Suryavanshis. This empire is powerful and proud, however, the Saraswati river that is their source of water is slowing drying up. On top of that, the empire is at war with the Chandravanshis who have allied with The Nagas, a group of sinister and deformed human beings who have extraordinary martial art skills.
The Immortals Of Meluha, published in 2010, is the first story of the trilogy. Daksha, the king of the Suryavanshis, realizes that his empire needs help. He invites a tribe from Tibet to help him fight off the enemies. The Tibetan Guna tribe is lead by Shiva, who is a fearless soldier, and the only one who does not fall ill on arriving at Meluha. To everyone's surprise, Shiva’s throat turns blue.
The locals believe that this warrior is their fabled saviour Lord Shiva, also known as Neelkanth. Shiva goes to Devagiri to meet Daksha and his daughter Princess Sati. There, he learns about the dangerous wars and terror attacks that the Chandravanshis have carried out on the Meluhans.
The brave warrior gets enraged, and declares a full war on the enemy. Readers will find this mythological fantasy to be gripping and exciting. Questions about Shiva’s duty, destiny, and karma arise throughout the book. The author has written a book that is adventurous, mystifying, and captivating, but at the same time he also has thrown light onto the subjects of what is evil, and who is truly a hero.
This page-turner is a treat for readers who enjoy history, fantasy, and adventure. The Immortals Of Meluha received good reviews from leading newspapers, and was a bestseller within its first week of release.

Awesome book and other top booksThere are few authors in India who write exceptionally well. Amish is one of those. I am a vivid reader and read almost all the books that come my way. This stands fifth.

God or Just a Good ManIn a world where common man is busy making spiritual guru as God, this man gave a new meaning to God. May be God is actually this way.

Party spoiler is here!There are books which are written for reading and then there are books which are written for movie making. This one falls in the latter category. Reads like a movie script.

Interest - Lost & Foundnot long ago I was an avid reader of books until audio books came by and other interests preceded by hungry to read and be addicted to books until I read The Immortals of Meluha last month in 2 days!!! This was one hell of a page turner and I simply couldnt believe the fact that people in India have started to write some simply amazing books which cater to a large audience who have been longing for... What Amish has done is simple fantastic as most of the young Indian Authors in the past have stuck to the usual youth rom-com books. This is a wonderful book and this has triggered a chain of eve… (Expand)

A Master PieceOne of my friend recommended this book and while reading I was so lost in it that I didn't realized I was on the last page. The ending of the book leaves you with curiosity to quickly jump to the next part. Same with the 2nd part "The Secret of Nagas"... Now I can't wait to get my hands on the last piece of the triology. The books is so brilliantly written that it truly deserves the title "Master Piece"

Three Star : Read only for the plot!If you haven't read this book already, then the question is why does one read a book? Rarely to improve language these days, often times to while away time. In which case this book is a good page turner. It is partly blasphemous, but has a good plot. The language is awful. No two ways about it. Tripathi uses original sanskrit words where they are not needed, uses modern hindi slang. There is no authenticity that one might expect (if you have , for example, read Herman Hesse's Siddhartha). Its a use-and-throw. A good passtime for a few hours, nothing you take away from it. I give it a three sta… (Expand)
