Praise for
The Immortals of Meluha
 
‘Shiva rocks. Just how much Shiva rocks the imagination is made grandiosely obvious in The Immortals of Meluha ... Shiva’s journey from cool dude... to Mahadev... is a reader’s delight... What really engages is the author’s crafting of Shiva, with almost boyworship joy’ — The Times of India

 
‘The story is gripping and well-paced. An essentially mythological story written in a modern style, the novel creates anticipation in the readers mind and compels one to read with great curiosity till the end. The end however is a cliff-hanger and leaves one thirsting for more.’

— Business World

 
‘Amongst the top 5 books recommended

by Brunch... the story is fascinating.’
— The Hindustan Times

 
‘...has philosophy as its underlying theme but is racy enough to give its readers the adventure of a lifetime.’
— The Hindu

 
‘Amongst the list of favourite holiday books of 2010. A fast paced story, you are bound to read it cover to cover in one sitting.’
— The Deccan Chronicle

 
‘Much before the box-office verdict on Rajneeti
and Raavan became apparent, Indian
readers gave a thumbs-up to The Immortals Of Meluha.
Its author Amish, an IIM
graduate, created a delightful mix of mythology and history by making Lord Shiva the hero of his trilogy. The first part has been on the Indian bestseller charts for quite some time now.’
— The Indian Express

 
‘...to me, The Immortals of Meluha
is a political commentary with messages for our
world and a hope that since they flow from the Mahadev himself, they will find greater acceptance. Be it the interpretation of Shiva’s battle cry — Har Har Mahadev as Every man a Mahadev or the valour of Sati who fights her own battles — every passage is rich in meaning and yet, open to interpretation. Therein lies the strength of this book.’ — Indiareads.com

 
‘...wonderful book, replete with action, love and adventure, and extolling virtues and principles... The author has succeeded in making many mythological figures into simple flesh and blood human beings, and therein lie(s) the beauty and the acceptability of this book.’

— The Afternoon

 
‘The author takes myth and contemporises it, raising questions about all that we hold true and familiar. The book is (a) marvellous attempt to create fiction from folklore, religion and archaeological facts.’

— People

 
‘The Immortals of Meluha... sees Lord Shiva and his intriguing life with a refreshing perspective... beautifully written creation... Simply unputdownable for any lover of Indian history and mythology.’

— Society
