A Unique Take on Ancient India
The Meluhans are the lot that were rumoured to have inhabited that part of India which we know today as the Indus Valley Civilisation. Proud of their traditions and waiting for the descent of their Saviour with his blue throat, this race will leave you spell bound with its modern views and organised way of life.
But as always, there is impending doom which must be fought off. These Meluhans, or Suryavanshis, now divorced from the evil wrecking Charavanshis, are at constant risk of terror attacks and a complete and fatal take over by the dark side represented by the latter. So what must they do?
The answer comes in the form of their saviour - the great Shiva. Having just migrated with his clan and tribesmen from what seems like Tibet in the book, this hero is unaware of his power. And only when he reveals his blue throat does Meluha as a whole fall at his feet, begging for safety from the evil Chandravanshis. So what must the hapless Shiva do? He must first be made aware of his own powers and the fact that he is indeed destined to keep the Meluhans and their rich culture, safe and secure.
But what happens when Shiva has his own inner demons? Well, that is the crux of The immortals of Meluha (Paperback): The battle of good and evil. What comes of it and how Shiva's journey is shaped is a matter of reading and enjoying this powerful tome, seeped as it is with rich Indian culture and traditions.
In this must read of sorts, author Amish has gone from being a banker to a true story teller. Watch as this near perfect Meluhan Empire unfolds in his unique style even as he creates memorable characters and some breath taking cliff hangers! The first in a trilogy, this one has been touted as one of the best books of the decade! Buy it online.
