referred to as "archetypal and stirring" by way of Deepak Chopra, The Immortals of Meluha heralds an exhilarating new wave of myth writing encouraged via the traditional civilizations of the East. Tripathi committed years to the examine of Hindu mythological tales and historical past, and discussions along with his family members concerning the future of the human physique, brain and soul to create this sweeping and interesting variation of historical Hindu mythology for contemporary fable readers. 1900 BC in what sleek Indians name the Indus Valley Civilization and the population referred to as the land of Meluha: a near-perfect empire created many centuries previous by way of Lord Ram--one of the best monarchs that ever lived--faces peril as its fundamental river, the Saraswati, is slowly drying to exctinction. The Suryavanshi rulers are challenged with devastating terrorist assaults from the east, the land of the Chandravanshis. To make issues worse, the Chandravanshis seem to have allied with the Nagas, an ostracized and sinister race of deformed people with extraordinary martial talents. the one desire for the Suryavanshis is an historical legend: whilst evil reaches epic proportions, whilst all turns out misplaced, a hero will emerge. Is the unforeseen, rough-hewn Tibetan immigrant Shiva that hero? Drawn without warning to his future, responsibility, and via love, Shiva will try to flow mountains and lead the Suryavanshi to ruin evil.
