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.

The Immortals of Meluha Overview

1900 BC. In what modern Indians mistakenly call the Indus Valley Civilisation. The inhabitants of that period called it the land of Meluha – a near perfect empire created many centuries earlier by Lord Ram, one of the greatest monarchs that ever lived. This once proud empire and its Suryavanshi rulers face severe perils as its primary river, the revered Saraswati, is slowly drying to extinction. They also face devastating terrorist attacks from the east, the land of the Chandravanshis. To make matters worse, the Chandravanshis appear to have allied with the Nagas, an ostracised and sinister race of deformed humans with astonishing martial skills. The only hope for the Suryavanshis is an ancient legend: ‘When evil reaches epic proportions, when all seems lost, when it appears that your enemies have triumphed, a hero will emerge.’ Is the rough-hewn Tibetan immigrant Shiva, really that hero? And does he want to be that hero at all? Drawn suddenly to his destiny, by duty as well as by love, will Shiva lead the Suryavanshi vengeance and destroy evil?

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...

About the Author

Born on 18 October, 1974, Amish Tripathi started life as a finance veteran and eventually transformed into a breakthrough Indian author. He made his way on to the bookshelves for the very first time in the February of 2010. He abandoned his 14 year career in finance when the first book of the Shiva Trilogy, the Immortals of Meluha was released and followed it up with the Secret of the Nagas and the Oath of the Vayuputras.

     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!!!

     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

  4.  A Mythological Fantasy. 14 April, 2014 On Junglee.com
    I have read two books of that trilogy. The legend of Shiva the man is told as a gripping fantasy.The character description is very lucid and amusing.The plot seemed interesting enough.This mythological novel is fast-paced, and focuses on duty, love, principles and more.

    But the writing could have been a lot better.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book . This book is highly recommended for those wanting to read something different in the field of epic fantasy and to anyone with Indian roots

  7.  No words to describe!!!!!!!! 31 March, 2014 On Junglee.com
    The story of Lord Shiva who lives in Tibet in mansarovar lake under the mountain kailash. He accompanies with his friend Bhadra and goes to the land of immortals(Meluha). It is A GORGEOUS STORY AND CONCEPT which is still running on my mind. The cover of the book itself will tempt us to read it. The author makes us to imagine the situations taking place in the story. He describes each of the character's garments, expressions and their attitude in detail which makes the reader say "WOW".
    This is a marvellous story which is created in the author's own imagination. this beautiful book is suggested for all age group people. Enjoy it....Get on yourself into the world of Amish. Must read.....

  8.  a book worth reading! 28 March, 2014 On Junglee.com
    if you are a mythology buff.. you are going to love the book. If you are not, then too,... it is worth a read. the language may be disappointing, but the story line soars beyond what you could have imagined and more often than not, the fine lines between historical facts and fiction fades.
    Make sure that when you start reading Immortals, you have loads of time in hand. Once you get the hang of it, the Trilogy is sure to be with you till the last page is turned.
    Happy reading!!
