Glimpse:

220px-The_Immortals_Of_MeluhaWell… “the Immortals of Meluha” is the first novel of the “Shiva Trilogy” written by Amish Tripathi. This trilogy has all the materials to make an excellent movie or better to make a HBO series (like “Game of Thrones”) on it.

What I liked the most about this book is the storyline. When I first heard about the book I had this mental inhibition about the book, because I thought what kind of a novel it could be if the theme is about Hindu God “Shiva”. But once I started to read the book, I loved it. Exactly because of the same reason. Wow! how beautifully Amish has woven the same aeon old saga of Lord Shiva in a completely new way making it so reliable. He has been successful in bringing the God “Shiva” very close to our heart, making him a mortal human who is as passionate and real as we all are; he who makes mistakes, feels guilty for unintentional wrong deeds, loves everyone, loves his girl “Sati”… all in all, a normal man who evolves to become special and tries to find the eternal truth throughout his journey.

Feeling curious enough to read the novel, then go get your copy! Happy Reading. . . :)
