Immortals of Meluha (The Shiva Trilogy Book 1) eBook: Amish Tripathi: this book to be and much more It was full of action and the way certain places were.
Further, Amish reintroduces us to some very basic tenets of human nature when he speaks of the prominent features of the Suryavanshi and Chandravanshi societies the clan of the sun and the moon and their differences.
Mulling over this concept, I realized that in our real world, we can actually classify people into Suryavanshis and Chandravanshis too, based on their characteristics and personalities. Asuras or demons and Suryavanshis represent the male characteristics, while the Devas or gods and Chandravanshis represent the female features.
In essence, it symbolizes the yin-yang of life, both so different and yet so essential to the other's existence—the male and female, the positive and negative. Another very important after-thought that this book leaves the reader with is the interpretation, or rather, the misinterpretation of good and evil.
The Immortals Of Meluha
As the levels of intolerance for other cultures, religions and communities rise driving unrest and widening rifts, it is refreshing to be reminded of the 'bigger picture. As the Mahadev learns, 'the difference between two dissimilar ways of life gets portrayed as a fight between good and evil; just because someone is different doesn't make them evil.
The truth instead is that the Mahadev has to look beyond the petty bickering of the two clans and instead tackle a larger evil among them — all that threatens the very existence of humanity. Whether the book fires your imagination to dwell on the larger questions of life or not, it certainly is a populist page-turner.
The First Book of Amish Tripathi's Shiva Trilogy
Perhaps Amish himself has fulfilled his destiny by writing this light-hearted trilogy that speaks to the current generation in a relatable tone and yet brings with it an underlying message from the beginning of time — the message of karma and dharma , tolerance for all forms of life and the realization that there is indeed a much bigger picture than what meets the eye! However, the once proud empire and its Suryavanshi rulers face severe crisis as its primary river, Saraswati , is slowly drying to extinction.
They also face devastating terrorist attacks from the Chandravanshis who have joined forces with the Nagas, a cursed race with physical deformities. Shiva, chief of the Guna tribe, accepts the proposal and moves to Meluha with his people.
Once reached they are received by Ayurvati, the Chief of Medicine of the Meluhans. The Gunas are impressed with the Meluhan way of life. On their first night of stay the tribe wake up with high fever and sweating.
The Meluhan doctors administer medicine. Ayurvati finds out that Shiva is the only one devoid of these symptoms and that his throat has turned blue. The Meluhans announce Shiva as the Neelkanth, their fabled saviour.
Shiva is then taken to Devagiri, the capital city of Meluha, where he meets Daksha. She is a Vikarma , an untouchable person due to sins committed in her previous births. Shiva tries to court her, but she rejects his advances. Ultimately Shiva wins her heart and even though the Vikarma rule prohibits them from doing so, an enraged Shiva vows to dissolve it and marries Sati.
During his stay in Devagiri, Shiva comes to know of the war with the Chandravanshis and also meets Brahaspati, the Chief Inventor of the Meluhans. Brahaspati invites Shiva and the royal family on an expedition to Mount Mandar , where the legendary drink Somras is manufactured using the waters of the Saraswati. Shiva learns that the potion which made his throat turn blue was actually undiluted Somras, which can be lethal when taken in its pure form.
But he was safe, indicating him to be the Neelkanth. Somras has anti-ageing properties making the Meluhans lived for many years. Brahaspati and Shiva develop a close friendship and the royal family returns to Devagiri.
One morning, the Meluhans wake up to a blast that took place at Mandar, destroying parts of the mountain and killing the scientists living there.

The Immortals of Meluha: Book Review
One morning, the whole of Meluha wakes up to loud noises coming from Mount Mandar. The Chandravanshi king is captured and brought in front of Daksha. The Meluhans announce Shiva as the Neelkanth, their fabled saviour. The characters were flat and not at all well developed.
