The Immortals of Meluha by Amish Tripathi

I just completed reading this wonderful book.

The Immortals of  Meluha is a fiction by Amish Tripathi. This book is first of the Trilogy on Lord Shiva, a fierce warrior, a passionate lover, an accomplished dancer and a wise philosopher. This is an interesting adaptation of great Indian mythology from human perspective i.e. The simple man whose karma recast him as our Mahadev, the God of Gods.

Though it’s a fiction, you might believe in it, the way author explains the concept behind Somras, origin of ‘OM’, invention of ‘Trishul’, ‘Har Har Mahadev’ and so on. Also it will impart you some knowledge on Indus valley civilisation, Sapt Sindhu, Suryavanshis, Chandravanshis, ancient caste system and so on.

A web presence for this trilogy can be found here.

Check out a wonderful video teaser here:

It’s a believable realistic approach, An intelligent approach to serve mythology which is digestible. A wonderful read. And yeah I must say, Don’t read it for mythology, read it for entertainment and you will love mythology.

Now I am eagerly awaiting for second installment of this trilogy to meet Nagas and to learn their secrets ;)
