I just wish that the writing was more elegant, content more researched and the story presented as the could be story of Shiva the God, rather than Shiva yes someone like yeah who transformed. Tripathi even changed his publisher and hosted a big launch for the book in Delhi.

Poor usage of langauge and random usage of swear words make the book an absolute pain to read. It is one’s guess whether the majority likes it or not but the story has been …more This is all imagination but very cleverly linked to some Hindu Gods. The mekuha should have added an asterix with a disclaimer somewhere, else many readers might feel cheated, like me.

The only thing rivaling the colander-like plot was the ridiculous ending. Keluha concept is further made implausible by the explanation that women carry a child till 9 months, travel to a place off the main city when they approach labour, give birth and leave empty-handed. I am sort of biased towards the Hindu God Shiva.

With a plot that is virtually non-existent, characters that are quarter-baked, terrible language and dialogues that range from asinine to absurd, Immortals of Meluha can be best described as a brilliant concept immortak complete awry in execution. It is not a version the religious or the traditional will appreciate, but is one meluba will appeal to those who are not averse to morphing mythology.

I have always been a fan of stories from the medieval times, my favorites being the likes of The Inheritance Cycle. However, that is just one way to look at it.

Sep 21, Anish Kohli rated it really liked it. Rohit Gupta Yes, in every page. Nothing can be worse for a mother than having a child who does not measure up to her expectations First of all, what?! Now that I have read Tolkien and Coelho, both, I would like to take this statement as a sad testament and proof just how wanting Indian authors are or maybe I have been unfortunate enough to not have read from any great ones.


As Shiva spends time with the Meluhans, he finds that while the society of Meluha functions perfectly, it has its problems and erroneous ways too.

First up, the language is atrocious – apart from the fact that the author and the editor seem to have messed up frequently on the basics of English grammar, I’m just not ready to buy Shiva-the-Epic-Warrior using “bullshit” and “ditto” amongst a host of anachronistic and unintentionally funny words.

Amish is really a genius. There are areas in the book where the author completely loses it. The way he weaves Shiva as a human character with an ethereal out-worldly aura is remarkable. Meanwhile Shiva finds himself falling in love with the one woman who was made for him, the one he cannot have, as the norms of the society dictate. Especially that part of the drainage system and the houses being at right angles with each other and the great bath.

But the author fails to capture the true essence of that time period by using names such as Kashmir and India for the places where the story takes place.

This is all imagination but very cleverly linked to some Hindu Gods. I read the first chapter online and liked it well enough that I decided to buy it. The book was a good story in itself, but at the root of it though I did not find the story engaging and suspenseful enough to read the next two books.

This is not the Shivapuran.

The Immortals of Meluha by Amish Tripathi – PDF Drive

Archived from the original on 30 December The book is a midpoint between Chetan Bhagat’s mind-numbing thrillers and a good mythology book. In the program they learned that in ancient Persia, demons immortall known as Daeva a term reserved for the Mimortal in Indian mythologyand angels were called Asuras a term reserved for demons in Indian mythology.

Jul 21, Varun rated it really liked it. I feel, personally, that Amish is painting a picture through this book and he is not done yet.

The Immortals of Meluha

And that is the biggest grievance I have with Mr. During his stay in Devagiri, Shiva comes to know of the treacherous wars that the Chandravanshis are carrying on the Meluhans. Ultimately, when the book was published in Februaryit went on to become a huge commercial success. And from then on, it is nothing but Shiva daydreaming about Sati and thinking of ways to meet her.


However, human beings have, to this day, suffered mainly due to emotions. I grow up, in the first few years, without the love of a mother off a father.

With Sati he visits the famous Ram temple of Ayodhyathe capital of Swadweep. Gods are humanized and traditions msluha questioned.


Immortals immrtal Meluha does none of these except have an intriguing story line. See our Returns Policy. Reminded me the way Ekta Kapoor soap episodes used to get over, with a cheap suspense that materialized into nothing in the next episode.

I could sense the love in Amish Trivedi which he had for his beloved Mahadev, Shiva. Names that you would remember vaguely from mythology, Amar Chitra Katha and your grandmother’s stories are fleshed out into real and mostly believable characters.

The book is as all the reviews point out, a very good read. But he wasn’t so cheerful. With the help of his musician friend Taufiq Qureshihe launched a live-action trailer film on YouTube and built an online community in Keluha and Twittersurrounding the video, to further hold the reader’s interest.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. The idea of immorta journey from human to meluhz being is the only thing about the plot that I liked and which had tempted me to buy this book.

The way Amish has beautifully tied together every legend associated with Lord Shiva, from Kailash, Manasarover to Tiger Skin to Neelkanth to Bharathanatyam dance to Trishul to the war cry ‘Har Har Mahadev’, leaves one in suspended disbelief thinking ‘oh, this is how it must’ve been’! I will definitely be reading the next book ‘The Secret of the Nagas’ though He humanized a deity masterfully and allowed many a people to connect.
