About The Immortals of Meluha


‘The Immortals of Meluha’ (Shiva Trilogy) is the first edition by Indian author Amish Tripathi. Published by Westland in 2010, this paperback is the first book of the Shiva trilogy preceding The Secret of the Nagas and The Oath of the Vayuputras. This book is a beautiful interpretation of the country’s rich mythological legacy and retells the tale of a legend from a different perspective. This paperback brilliantly fuses fiction with scientific facts and weaves an interesting read.

The story depicts how the tribal leader from Tibet walks in the land of Meluha, ruled by the Suryavanshis (worshippers of Sun), only to find himself in the midst of a well known prophesy of the ‘Neelkanth’. The rulers strongly believe that the Tibetan tribal leader Shiva is their fabled saviour Lord Shiva who can bail their empire out from the attacks of the Chandravanshis (worshippers of the moon) and other dangers that lurk around. The fast moving narrative delves into the spirit of a society in the era of Lord Ram and how they devise ways to eradicate evil. Shiva reluctantly takes up the mantle to assist them in their quest to find the root of the evil and unravels many mysteries on the way, thus fulfilling his destiny.

Amish Tripathi’s ‘The Immortals of Meluha’ has well defined characters and the book is divided into episodes for easy reading. The author’s style of writing is natural and the 412 pages book is quite a page turner, making it one of the best buys in India. Available in English, the ISBN code details are 9789380658742 and 9380658742.

Overview: The Immortals of Meluha

The Immortals of Meluha is the first novel of the famous Shiva Trilogy. This particular novel has been set in the land of Meluha and the story starts off with Shiva, the Tibetan tribal arriving there. You would be engulfed by this thrilling tale of the warrior named Shiva, and how he protects the people of Meluha from intruders and other harm. This book has been written by Amish Tripathi, who is an Indian author born in 1974. He is a graduate from the Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta and has worked in the financial sector for almost 14 years. The two other books of this Trilogy include The Secret of the Nagas and The Oath of the Vayuputras. This book was published on 17th May, 2011 by Westland. If you wish to get this book and do not have the time to go down to a store, then online book shopping would be a good idea. In order to get the best price possible, visit the Junglee website and compare prices offered by various retailers listed there. Doing so would save you some money, and the book will be delivered wherever you want.

The story has been set in the land of Meluha, an empire that had been created by Lord Rama and at present is ruled by the Suryavanshis. This is a flourishing, dynamic and proud empire. However, the river Saraswati that flows through their kingdom is slowly drying up and that is now rearing its head as a major concern to the people of this kingdom. To add to their woes, the Chandravanshis have befriended the Nagas. The Meluhas have been at war with the Chandravanshis for a considerable period of time. The Nagas are another sinister clan consisting of deformed people, and they are known for their exceptional martial art skills. At this crucial moment, the ruler of the Meluhas, Daksha decides to call for help in the face of this impending danger. Daksha, the Suryavanshi King invites a Tibetan clan, which is lead by Shiva. He is a rather fearless soldier and the only one who is not taken ill on arrival at Meluha. In fact, to the great surprise of everyone else, Shiva turns all blue.

This incident makes the people of Meluha believe that he is their saviour, Lord Shiva. He is also known as Neelkanth. Shiva meets Daksha and his daughter, Sati; this is when he finds out about the impending danger from the Chadravanshis and how they have attacked the Meluhans in the past as well. He is absolutely enraged on hearing this and declares war. You are bound to find this mythological fantasy both gripping and enticing at the same time. The plot moves on at a dexterous pace combining the elements of thrill, adventure, mystery and more. The story throws up pertinent questions on Shiva's destiny, duty and karma; and you would find him emerging a hero in his quest for truth.

The Immortals of Meluha received amazing response from readers all over the nation. The Statesman found the characters "well etched" and commented that they can capture the "reader's attention". In fact, the interactions between Sati and Shiva are nothing short of "intriguing", says Lisa Mahapatra from The New Indian Express. The English paperback edition of this book spans across 412 pages. The book's ISBN 10 is 9380658745 and ISBN 13 is 9789380658742, and can be bought in stores across the country.

Review

Today, Shiva is a god. But four thousand years ago, he was just a man. 1900 BC: the once-proud Suryavanshi rulers of the Meluha Empire are in dire peril. The empire's primary river, the Saraswati, is slowly drying up. There are devastating terrorist attacks from the east, the land of the Chandravanshis - and to make matters worse, the Chandravanshis appears to have allied with the Nagas, an ostracised race of deformed humans with astonishing martial skills. The only hope for the Suryavanshis is an ancient prophecy: when evil reaches epic proportions and all seems lost, a hero will emerge...

     Fast Paced!!!! 3 February, 2012 On Junglee.com
    Just awesome!!! This is the word I will say about this book. This is all about a tribal man....who become the 'Maha Dev' or the god of the gods. Plotted in 3400 B.C. A nice interpretation of ancient Hindu mythology and civilization by Amish Tripathi. After reading this book, you will see the Hindu mythological characters in a new light.

    A must read!!!

     Super Awesome Imagination 8 June, 2014 On Junglee.com
    I read this book with skepticism but in the end i came to love it like it was written only to thrill and impart knowledge. The story speaks of a common man becoming a legend. The way the events enfold and make him a legend are perfectly constructed so that they make appropriate sense.

  5.  Awesome Read 9 August, 2014 On Junglee.com
    It's a great read. Yes, it gives a little Bollywood feel, but it's brilliant. You can't stop reading it till you finish it. And the moment you finish it, you crave for the sequel.

    Kudos to the Amish for the good story. Though everything feels like it's an adaptation from the mythology, the story is totally different and fresh.

     Interesting Story 2 February, 2012 On Junglee.com
    The author has amalgamated facts and fiction really well to create a spell binding and interesting story. The language is easy and you can finish the book in one setting, but the story is quite gripping. It's good to read about mythology from a fiction point of view

  7.  PARVAAZ of my imagination 6 July, 2014 On Junglee.com
    Its an awesome book. Not for a moment but for the whole time I was wondering in the lands of maluha while reading it. After HARRY POTTER series, I was finding it hard to have the same effect as it did and I'm really glad its an Indian author.

  9.  A might tale of mighty Shiva... 8 June, 2014 On Junglee.com
    I picked up this book out of curiosity, to know, why is there so much hype, what all this fuss is about, but when I actually started reading, then found myself into another world, that ancient India with different flavours...Amish had done a wonderful job, he is a great storyteller,
    Now I am going to read the sequel...we all are the mighty Shiva... Love it :)

  10.  Fast paced and interesting 8 June, 2014 On Junglee.com
    ** spoiler alert ** I don't think I have read any mythological fiction before and this as a first wasn't a bad start. Hope to finish the trilogy in next few months.

    I recall the craze about Shiva trilogy while in college, especially among the folks at LH ;). Written using very simple words, the book re-imagines Shiva as a man and describes his journey in the strange and unfamiliar world of Meluha and beyond. The revelation near the end is an eye opener and makes one think about the fine balance necessary between a disciplined culture and individual freedom.

    Liked the fact that the author has the etymological information handy for most of the Hindi words used in the content.
