🔱I would like to mention that few of our non Indian acquaintances have asked us 🇮🇳 to tell about our mythological good books other than Ramayan & Mahabharat which they want to enjoy in form of interesting tale with drama,suspense,love,mystery and knowledge depicting Indian culture. So presenting you this book as part 1 from the tri-series.
For Indian readers those who have read,it’s recap and those who have not read,it’s brief summary for you.
🔱The story begins with geographical concept of Indus valley civilization. The idea of Gods being humans earlier with their karmas attain the divine status is interpreted very well.
🔱’Shiva’ leaves Mt. Kailash and moves Meluha- the heavenly beautiful & peaceful place of followers of Lord Ram and Suryavanshis (Descendents of sun). Unfortunately river Saraswati slowly dries up and from eastern side Chandrawanshis (Descendents of Moon) start attacking disturbing the tranquil Meluha. He accepts the proposal to sort issue with Daksh and in his daughter he reckons his soul mate Sati! I was mesmerized to read Shiva & Sati’s love story and interactions. Shiva meets Brahaspati,chief inventor of Meluhans on expedition to Mt. Mandar which soon gets partially destroyed with blast where Chandrawanshis attack joining hands with ‘Nagas’ .
Enraged by this Shiva declares a war to find something unexpected! It is very interesting & must read!
🔱Let me clarify that book is fiction and hardly decade old,so at places we find modern language with current jargons,but nowhere it affects the beautiful plot!
🔱The journey from Kailash to Mansarovar,Shiva to Neelkanth with war cry “Har har Mahadev” gives goosebumps!
Author ends part1 on nice cliffhanger.
