1900 BC: the once-proud Suryavanshi rulers of the Meluha Empire are in dire peril. The empire's primary river, the Saraswathi, is slowly drying up. There are devastating terrorist attacks from the east, the land of the Chandravanshis - and to make matters worse, the Chandravanshis appear to have allied with the Nagas, an ostracised race of deformed humans with astonishing martial skills. The only hope for the Suryavanshis is an ancient prophecy: when evil reaches epic proportions and all seems lost, a hero will emerge...

The legend of Shiva the man is told as a gripping fantasy in which Hindu myths are interpreted from a unique perspective and which explores philosophies such as the many versions of reality, karma, the character of societies, nature of evil and duality. A fast moving action narrative in which we also learn of the origin of the Brahmins, the magical anti-ageing drink Somras (with modern-research backed support of its efficacy), the concepts of Vishnu and others. Somewhere in an attempt to find the right answers, we forget the more important task of asking the right questions. At the end of the first book, Shiva is asking the right question - in fact the most crucial one: "ÂœWhat is evil?" And on his interpretation of the answer and in the very duality of life, hangs the fate of India. The Immortals of Meluha can be classified as a Mythological Fantasy.

The Immortals of Meluha is the first novel of the Shiva trilogy series by Amish Tripathi. The story takes place in the imaginary land of Meluha and how they are saved from their wars by a nomad named Shiva. It begins with the Meluhan king Daksha inviting tribes to stay at his country, one of them being Shiva's tribe. They soon come to recognize Shiva as their fabled saviour called Neelkanth, after he devours a poison which turns his throat blue. Shiva decides to help the Meluhans in their war against the Chandravanshis, who had joined forces with a cursed group called Nagas. However, in his journey and the resulting fight that ensues, Shiva learns how his choices actually reflected who he aspires to be, and how it led to dire consequences. Tripathi had initially decided to write a book on the philosophy of evil, but was dissuaded by his family members. So he decided to write a book on Shiva, one of the Hindu Gods.
