About the Book

The Story of the Man. Whom Legend Turned into a God. 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 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, hwen 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, but duty as well as by love, will Shiva lead the Surayavanshi 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.

(The Immortals of Meluha)

The book very skilfully marries the mythological legends with a fast paced plot which is absolutely engrossing end to end...The book also touches upon the fundamentals concepts of various Dharmas like Karma and reincarnations...what it also does wonderfully is introduce some very important mythological agendas who generally does not feature in the who's who of ancient legends...all in all it is a definite read
