The first book of the famous Shiva trilogy is The Immortals Of Meluha. This book was first written in english and then translated to twelve languages in India, including Tamil. The book narrates the story of the making of Mahadev, the God of Gods, in a nomadic style. It is a unique and creative story based in 1900 BC, the time we all know in history for the Indus Valley Civilisation.
The book narrates the story of a land called Meluha. This land and the empire was created by Lord Ram, a great monarch. The inhabitants of Meluha, the great Suryavanshi’s, were faced with trouble as the river Saraswati flowing through their land was drying up. They were also being attacked from the east, the Chandravanshis. The Chandravanshis have made an alliance with the Nagas, to grow in strength. The Nagas were a threatening race of deformed humans and they possessed great martial art skills. The Suryavanshi’s needed a miracle to save them. They identified their saviour in the rough Tibetan immigrant, Shiva. Shiva is then drawn to his destiny, by duty and for love, to lead the Suryavanshi vengeance and destroy the evils. This book goes on to tell you whether he is successful in doing so. It is the story of a common and simple man, who is called to become the Mahadev.
This Tamil version, which was published in 2013 by Westland is available in paperback.
The book rights have been bought, to make a motion picture in Hindi.
The other two books that are part of this trilogy are The Secret Of The Nagas and The Oath Of The Vayuputras.
