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.

1. Corporate Chanakya
2. That's the way we met - Sudeep Nagarkar
3. How I braved Any Aunty - Varun Aggarwal
4. The Backbenchers - Siddharth Oberoi
5. The immortals of Melhua- Amish Tripathi

Readers and Reviewers....

Hey ppl who are writing the review comments, the author has clearly mentioned that the book is work of fiction. I hope ppl understand what fiction means. He has used the concepts of mythology and religious beliefs to mould it into a triology. he doesnot claim that what he writes in the book has been happend the same way. I request the readers to read with an open mind, just enjoy the emotions in the book. Wat u believe abt ancient India is ur belief and the author is not claiming that it is w...

Truth or Myth

First of all, I'd like to convey the readers of my review that I haven't read this book. I'm writing this only because I feel that some of the content posted by other reviewers was offensive to the "Great Indian History".

1. Only a person who has complete knowledge of Indian History is allowed to "certify" something as Myth.

2. One of the reviewers has mentioned that there is no mention of Rama in vedas. I think he is the author of those vedas.
Vedas start with 'Harihi om'. I can explain th...

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...

Best in the market!

I'd heard so much about this book. Since it was the very first book from the author so I was totally blank about what to expect. But when I start reading it I began to have quiet a few problems with the book. Because I'd known Shiva as the destroyer God, the God of gods. I wasn't very familiar with the idea of reimagining of a mythological charecter. But as I went on reading everything became very clear to me gradually. And at the end of this book I just couldn't wait for the next one which i...

Terrific purchase

It's methodology no it's the correct representation of Hindu gods and for me it's better to teach children about gods as some real life human who did soo good for the people and the society that people actually represent them as gods... So that the children would not have a misconception of some magic to take place to fix their problems...

A:Yes. Don't read the book as if reading story of shiv, read the story like you are reading for a common man who distinguished himself through his Karma.
