    Description

    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.

    2. That's the way we met - Sudeep Nagarkar
    3. How I braved Any Aunty - Varun Aggarwal
    4. The Backbenchers - Siddharth Oberoi

    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.

    A far better work could have been written when your central character is one of the strongest characters in Hindu mythology. The author takes Lord Shiva and reduces him to the level of a hollywood movie actor or even worse.

    If you think chetan bhagat deserves a man booker award then you may recommend this for a nobel i...

    Good story poorly written

    Amish Tripathi weaves a splendid but totally fictional & fantasised account of Shiva's traivails.

    For the folks looking for Lord Shiva's mythologicaly accurate chronical would feel frustrated. This book is certainly not for the purists; they should explore authetic SHIVA PURAN for that goal.

    This is a fabricated, but very well conceptualised story, weaving together the history(Indus Valley Civilization), geaography ( North Indian plains above the Vindhayas) & mythology; it still is a fantas...

    Gross errors

    Publisher Westland Ltd.
    If I had read the Immortals of Meluha first there was no way I would have bought the secret of the Nagaâ??s or even bothered to read it.
    The author traverses through a hypothesis that Shiva was a migrant from Tibet who performed great fete, he eventually got deified. Definitely an interesting possibility with parallel examples of Gandhi and Lady Di. He has retold popular legends to fit the story narration.
    Despite of an interesting concept being fairly well written the...

    Amazing work

    Simply loved the way book was presented, and the flow of story. It picks up at the right times. Also, the descriptions by the author are very simple, yet sharp.

    It is a book that once you pick up, is very hard to leave. So make sure you read this over a weekend!
