  • Usually Delivered in 2-3 business days.
  • Delivery times may be longer than usual due to festive demand

What is the estimated delivery time?

Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.
Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:
  • The Seller offering the product
  • Product's availability with the Seller
  • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

What do the different tags like "In Stock", "Available" mean?

'In Stock'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Available'

For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Imported'

'Back In Stock Soon'

The item is popular and is sold out. You can however 'book' an order for the product and it will be shipped according to the timelines mentioned by the Seller.

Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

You have probably noticed varying estimated delivery times for Sellers of the product you are interested in. Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

Please enter your default pin code on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

Enter your pincode on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

  • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
  • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
  • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

THE SECRET OF THE NAGAS (B- FORMAT) (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 280

The Shiva Trilogy is a series built around characters that are based loosely on those from Indian mythology and the Hindu Panthe on.

In the first book, The Immortals of Meluha, Shiva is a Tibetan tribal chief who is brought to the country of Meluha to save the people from their enemies. The Secret of The Nagas picks up from that point, where the first book ended.

Shiva’s wife Sati is stalked by the Nagas, who are a group of people forced to live in isolation because of their physical deformities. Shiva also holds the Nagas to be responsible for the death of his friend Brihaspathi of Meluha. He sets out to find the Nagas and avenge the death of his friend.

Shiva and Sati travel to Kashi. They locate a community of Brangas who they feel can tell them about the Nagas. Shiva prepares to sail to the land of the Brangas while Sati decides to stay on in Kashi.

In the course of the story, Sati learns a few secrets about herself and her family. She also gives birth to Karthik, her younger son. Shiva and Sati are temporarily estranged for various reasons. They learn the true identities of the Nagas who were stalking Sati, and the person responsible for the murder of Sati’s first husband.

The final part of the story deals with Shiva’s journey to Panchvati, the Naga Capital.

About the Author

Amish is married and has a son, Neel. He lives in Mumbai with his family.

Starts right from where 'The Immortals of Meluha' ends. The book is unputdownable and comepels the reader to turn the page and read on and on and on..... Fast narrative, relevantly related to mythology, still drifting away from the normal but satisfying the reader with its logic and arguments. The c… (View complete review)

shiverring

this book gives a basic argument of good and bad, taking the plot of Shiva, how he became the lord of lords. it was the fight to know the evil and destroy that. it lies within all of us. Loved the way the story unfolds. at times you feel the push and hits as you tend to get so involved in it.

Entertaining

1. According to this book, Lord RAM is well before the time of the arrival of Lord Shiva or Neelkanth. If that is the case, how did Lord Ram perform poojas to Lord Shiva in Rameshwaram which is described in detail in RAMAYANA? May be that was a different Lord Shiva in scriptures, with a different Goddess Shakthi with a different Ganapati and different Karthick as sons.

2. Lord Shiva is documented in the scriptures as a god possessing qualities of high meditation and is third eye in the forehead is the wisdom eye. There is also a documened story in the scriptures that say he burnt the …

Interesting but not as good as the first part.

I was really excited to read the second installment of this series. When I started reading this, I really expected more. But the story that is the journey of Shiva really seemed pointless to me.

A secret is revealed at the end of the book. Why didnt the naga told that to Shiva instead of going through so much trouble.

But the series is really great and I am eagerly waiting for the third book.

Maybe Maybe not

I stumbled onto The Immortals quite by chance when a friend of mine decided to buy the book(from flipkart, heheh) simply because he doesn't believe in mythology and often makes fun of my religious belief. but anyway, when i did get down to reading it i found it extremely entertaining probably because of the contemporary language and familiar story. We all love or fear Shiva in some way and seeing him as a man, quite human like us, yet having the virtues worthy of being worshipped is what makes this book a shining light in Indian Myhological Fiction, something we sadly have too little of. I pla…

Only a moron can like this crap

Unfortunately this book proves that only a very small fraction of Indian writers can write fiction and even a smaller part of that can write fiction in English.
An extremely interesting premise to try and reconstruct one of the most intriguing characters from mythology but let down by crappy imagination and an idiotic sense of narrative.
I believe its just the complete morons who would find this entertaining and want to read it.

The So called Secret of the Nagas

The secret of the Nagas is that Brispathi is alive. Those of you who read the first book will know that Lord Shiva thinks his closest friend Brispathi was killed by the Nagas (hence his hatred towards them).

The second book, boils down to this:
Lord Shiva makes an enemy out of his father-in-law and becomes friends with the Nagas. That's about it. The book tends to lose focus and meanders all over the kingdom.

I just hope the second book is a stepping stone towards the third and that the third book will be as good as the first.

This second book in the series is s…

Pop Mythology : Hindi Serial-ish

Summary - Interesting characterization, nice blend of myths and facts. Builds into a nice plot and then runs like an confused hindi serial which stretches and stretches...Potpourri, Pop-Mythology.

Losses-
The first book builds into an interesting plot. The characterization is interesting and could have been a more evolved,modern and engaging piece of fiction. The writer's need to keep the plot alive brings about a serial-ish style of writing towards the last chapters....Reminds me of the typical low quality hindi serials...build a plot,loud music, alot of surprised stares, camera …

Not so Good Book

If any one ask me the question which is the worst book you come across, I definitely will mention this book. I did not understand what is the secret in this book, even though the title mentions it. It is better if you go for Chanakya's Chant then this book, at least you will not repent for the money spent.

An OK read, if you must

This book is really boring and I have been able to read only 80 pages so far coz the story is damn slow and monotonous.
All the initial excitement after ordering the book and finally getting it delivered went over after reading the first 20 - 30 pages!!!!
The first one was much better and the story must have been limited to a single book rather than the author having to read bad reviews for extending the story to 2 useless sequels.

P.S. This is my personal opinion and I don't mean to offend the Author or anyone else by this review.
