THE IMMORTALS OF MELUHA
The Shiva Trilogy
Shiva! The Mahadev. The God of Gods. Destroyer of Evil. Passionate lover. Fierce
warrior. Consummate dancer. Charismatic leader. All-powerful, yet incorruptible. Quick wit, accompanied by an equally quick and fearsome temper.
Over the centuries, no foreigner who came to our land — conqueror, merchant, scholar, ruler, traveller — believed that such a great man could possibly exist in reality. They assumed that he must have been a mythical God, whose existence could be possible only in the realms of human imagination. Unfortunately, this belief became our received wisdom.
But what if we are wrong? What if Lord Shiva was not a figment of a rich imagination,
but a person of flesh and blood? Like you and me. A man who rose to become godlike
because of his karma. That is the premise of the Shiva Trilogy, which interprets the rich
mythological heritage of ancient India, blending fiction with historical fact.
This work is therefore a tribute to Lord Shiva and the lesson that his life teaches us. A
lesson lost in the depths of time and ignorance. A lesson, that all of us can rise to be
better people. A lesson, that there exists a potential god in every single human being.
All we have to do is listen to ourselves.
The Immortals of Meluha is the first book in the trilogy that chronicles the journey of this
extraordinary hero. Two more books are to follow: The Secret of the Nagas and The Oath of the Vayuputras .

The Immortals of Meluha is the first novel of the Shiva trilogy series by Amish Tripathi. The story is set in the land of Meluha and starts with the arrival of the Tibetan tribal Shiva.
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. He decided to base his story on the fundamental concept that all Gods were once human beings; it was their deeds in the human life that made them famous as Gods.
