THE STORY OF THE MAN WHOM LEGEND TURNED INTO A GOD.
1900 B.C. In what modern Indians mistakenly call the Indus Valley Civilisation.
The inhabitants of that period called it the land of Meluha - a new 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?
This is the first book in a trilogy on Shiva, the simple man whose karma re-cast him as our Mahadev, the God of Gods.
NOTED MEDIA PERSONALITY, JOURNALIST AND AUTHOR:
‘The Immortals of Meluha’ is a fast paced story, a definite page-turner. Amish has incorporated a range of emotions and themes into the book which absorb and grasp the reader’s interest – from sweeping action sequences to heart-tugging love stories. But the really interesting part of the book for me was his realistic take on Shiva in particular and Hindu gods in general. There are fascinating interpretations of the caste system, various philosophies such as the nature of reality, good and evil, amongst others. The fact that he has merged actual historical facts (such as Indus Valley cities) with his imagination of the story, makes the book that much more engaging.'
