The story of a man whose fate led him to be considered a God. The mythical story of Shiva is brought into a new perspective in The Immortals of Meluha, the first in a fantasy trilogy.
Summary Of The Book:
When Meluha, an empire created centuries earlier by Lord Ram, is under threat from the Chandravanshis and the Nagas, her king, Daksha, sends emissaries to Tibet and asks the tribe there to help him. Among these tribes are the Gunas, and their chief Shiva is a mighty warrior. He moves to Srinagar and in a curious coincidence that sees him alone of all his tribe unaffected by a high fever, Shiva’s throat turns blue and the Meluhans announce him as Neelakanth, their fabled mythic savior. The book begins the story of his life, and how he comes to accept the title given to him, that of the God of Gods.
