Amish Tripathi’s Shiva Trilogy consisting of The Immortals of Meluha, The Secret of the Nagas and The Oath of the Vayuputras gives its readers an insight into all the Hindu mythological tales that they would have ever heard or read.. All the wars, all the significant mythological events have been described in these books and in a very ‘Believable’ manner.. Lord Shiva hasn’t been glamorized as a God or anything.. Instead the author has blended all the qualities, the characteristics as we believe today into a more human form and thus comes the main protagonist of the story Shiva.. The story starts with the journey of the Lord from the highlands of Tibet to a kingdom called Meluha established by the Suryavanshi rulers following the code of conduct as preached by Lord Ram, with its ruler Daksha , his wife Veerini and their daughter Sati, Later it deals with the birth of Shiva’s and Sati’s son, Kartik and Sati’s long lost son Lord Ganesha and her sister Kali.. Starting at the end of the reign of Lord Ram and his successors it goes on to describe the causes and the effects of the greatest war ever fought, The Mahabharata..
It is basically a story of fight between the good and the evil.. it is the story about how excess of something can be so bad that it can lead to the destruction of ‘Almost perfect’ things.. It is a story that tells us that an even balance of Good and evil is needed in the nature.. A story about how a father’s love for his daughter makes him disregard the holy code of conduct, how commitment to one’s lord can lead us to the holy path of redemption.. All n all its a must read series for all those Bookworms.. Its a book which tells all the mythological tales under a totally different light so much so that nothing seems incredible and every piece of information just seems to fit..
RATING : 4/5
There are some parts with so many intricate details that u might at times get bored.. But inspite of that all the books are simply awesome. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
