The Secret Of The Nagas (Paperback) Price: Rs.146

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.

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 ANGELS OF KAMA for disturbing his meditation. Will such an highly meditative mind seek solace or peace in marijuana as is described so often in this book? There are hearsay stories about Lord smoking marijuana by certain sections of people who use the Lord as a cover for their addictions and nothing more than that. THERE ARE ABSOLUTELY NO SCRIPTURAL REFERENCE TO LORD SHIVA SMOKING. May be that was a different Lord Shiva in scriptures.

3. In Immortals of Meluha - THE ORACLE FORETELLS THE ARRIVAL OF NEELKANTH - THE NEELKANTH ARRIVES BUT HE IS FILLED WITH DOUBTS ABOUT HIS ABILITIES AND HIS PASSAGE BEGINS WITH STRUGGLES AND FIGHTS FROM AGENTS OF THE KINGDOM OF NAGAS. THE STORY IS FAMILIAR AND REMINISCENT OF NEO AND MATRIX.

4. In THe Secret of Nagas - THE LORD OF PEOPLE OR GANESH AND QUEEN OF NAGAS or KALI have mutations in the body that makes them look paranormal for which the society is afraid of them and cannot accept them but it helps them to perform things unimaginable to normal human beings. REMINISCENT OF A WHOLE LOT OF POPULAR HOLLYWOOD MOVIES like XMEN, Wolverine etc etc.

5. BOOK IS ENTERTAINING. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND IT FOR CASUAL READING BUT IT IS A FIGMENT OF IMAGINATION AND NON FACTUAL LIKE DAVINCI CODE. IF YOU WANT SCRIPTURE LESSONS THEN THIS BOOK IS INADEQUATE. BUT IT IS DEFINITELY ENTERTAINING.

6. THE BOOK IS WRITTEN BY A VERY EMINENT PERSON, EDITED BY EXPERTS AND ENDORSED BY EQUALLY EMINENT SCHOLARS. NEITHER DO I MAKE ANY ATTEMPT TO BELITTLE THEM NOR DO I CLAIM TO BE AN EXPERT. I JUST SAY THE DISCREPANCIES.

7. HOWEVER BOOK IS DEFINITELY VERY THRILLING AND A GOOD TIMEPASS. STRONGLY RECOMMENDED TO BUY as fiction.

Nice concept, well written and some daring ideas

Nice concept, well written and some daring ideas- they very well summarise this book. The language is simple and lucid. You get a feeling like you are reading a comic. This is not a history book, some of the ideas are really daring and cannot stand the scrutiny of penetrating historians. I, especially liked the idea of the meaning of "Har Har Mahadev". In short, I think the book is immensely readable and the writer can really go a long way. BUT, I would like to suggest something to Amish. By writing a trilogy, I hope he knows what he's doing. A new writer, his first book.....and incomplete. Asking your readers to keep waiting for the next episode----isn't it a bit too much to ask for, Mr. Amish. So I suggest the next book be complete in itself. The trilogy can very well be in sequels rather than episodes. Good luck!

If you like Die Hard you'll like this

Now what kind of a statement is that? You know die hard is full of nonsense action, punch lines, action scenes that look too easy. This book is like that. A very nice base (A man who became Mahadev), good vs evil and a very nice concept that says 'evil is in the eye of beholder'. Like die hard it keeps you engaged till the end. Like die hard you know when the portions are obvious masala and un realistic. You know when punch lines like Yippe kay yay are going to be said. Thats how Meluha is.. brilliantly engaging, too americanised(read too many slangs), lacking in creativity (a missed opportunity of dreaming up a Hogwarts or middle earth), too modern to be 1900 BC, has all essential ingredients (read love, bravery, bonding, social justice, epic battles, discovering self et al). You'll enjoy this, but you'll definitely not keep this anywhere in your top 50 or even 100 fav books list.

Character of a man turning into God

As good as it can be. Love reading this kind of epic.

My top pics in character based novel -
God father
Immortal of Meluha/Secret of nagas
Papillon
Maverick heart between love and life

I love something which is based on character. Character is building block of any story. Plots, dialogue and other in story become filler then. We can associated or think something like brand name - when Amitabh is on screen - certain things and quality are expected out of him. His screen presence will matter - does not matter how messy at a times plot could be.

Same thing happen when you have a story based on well defined character. You will expect - tough decisions and reaction as per his attitude and viewpoint will come out. But char building is not so easy. painfully you have to build series of events and plot - which will define the basic feature of this man.

Karan Johar has already rights for Immortal of Meluha, let us see who is going to grab this one? I am waiting for screen version of these epic.

I was so fascinated by Siva char - I forgot the other elements like narration and smooth language.

Other books which are character based - Papillon (an autobiography of a french man - tried escaping from prison 13th time and finally succeeded.). You need to read and see how char plays important role in determination to live free life at any cost, at cost of even your life.

Another One - Godfather - We remember when God father speaks - it is not just dialogues coming out of his mouth but personality of man gets define based on those words.

My top pics in char based novel -
God father
Immortal of Meluha/Secret of nagas
Papillon
Maverick heart between love and life

The last one is by first timer. But you will love for its meaningful and brilliant dialogue and character based driven plots.

Indian writing is coming to a new age.
