Meluha Ke Mritunjay (Hindi) is the Hindi translation of the first novel of the Shiva trilogy and is a mythological fantasy. The book takes the reader along with Lord Shiva on his journey of introspection on who he desired to be and how it led to dire consequences.
Summary Of The Book
Meluha Ke Mritunjay (Hindi) is a gripping fantasy tale that narrates the legend of Shiva against the backdrop of many myths and the popular Hindu belief of Karma. The books takes the reader on a magical journey, that along the way talks about the origins of the Brahmins, the many Avatars of Vishnu and the properties of Somras, a drink believed to grant immortality to its drinker.
The year is 1900 BC and on the land of Meluha what modern Indians mistakenly know as the Indus Valley Civilisation, is a utopian empire created hundreds of years ago by the greatest of the kings that ever ruled the face of earth, Lord Ram.
The proud empire and its rulers, the Suryavanshis, are facing a looming crisis as their primary river, Saraswati, is slowly ebbing away. Added to their woes are the terrorist attacks from the Chandravanshis, their neighbours from the east who have teamed up with the Nagas, an ostracised race of humans with superior martial skills.
As dark clouds hover above the once proud empire, the only glimmer of hope that the citizens cling onto is an ancient legend that proclaims the emergence of a hero when everything seems to be in a state of despair.
Soon, a Tibetan immigrant Shiva, along with his loyal followers, sets foot in Meluha. Is he their hero, their saviour? Pushed into circumstances that he had never dreamed of and at the same time burdened with a sense of duty and love, will Shiva march the Suryavanshis on a path to victory and destroy evil forever?
Meluha Ke Mritunjay (Hindi) ruled the bestseller list of leading magazines like The Times Of India, The Economic Times, The Statesman, and Rolling Stone India just a week after it was first published in February 2010. Since then, it has sold over a million copies all over the world. The book has also been translated into several regional Indian languages like Gujarati, Marathi and Telugu. Acclaimed film director Karan Johar's Dharma Productions has bought its film rights.

Keep a little respect for feelings of readersThe writer has written an excellet book with a lot of research on the subject. However I was pained to see the unnecessary inclusion of irrelevant dreams being seen by Lord Shiva about the seeing of a women crying for help. The book would have continued without the reference of dream mentioned in the start of Chapter 15 and I was forced to tear the page no. 261-262 of the book so that my other family members may read the book without any hesitation. The writing on page no. 261-262 appears to be of a third grade porn story unnecessary included in the book and I feel very sorry about the autho… (Expand)

poor writing, a lot of factual mistakesI started getting frustrated just after reading few pages and it continued till last. Its written without studying or understanding history and culture. The success of this series is a very good example that Amish is IIM alumni and know how to sell scrap at the price of gold.
