Beginning in the land of Meluha, one of the oldest civilizations around River Indus (which most of us refer to as the Indus Valley Civilization) this piece of fiction along with references from epics & myths, makes it sound like a real history.
The story begins with introduction of a tribe from Tibet, with an invitation to settle in a land beyond the mountain. Along with them we too are taken into the new land – civilized, systematic & flourishing kingdom of Meluha. Suryavanshis , the inhabitants of this land live prosperously with vast knowledge. But there is a hidden mystery, that keeps haunting this wonderful people of Meluha. They are awaiting a legendary hero to save them.
The legendary hero, to everyone’s surprise is from the barbaric tribe. He is entitled as their savior, the Neelkanth. Shiva the Neelkanth promises to do his best to this people & begins his journey with faith in his Karma. His journey is through a misconception of what they think as evil, and then comes an immense good that turns evil. Like every other story, destruction of evil is the climax.
The land of Meluha – an dream land with all good in it.
Suryavanshis VS Chandravanshis – the two way of life, may sound vague but has in-depth vision in it.
Good & Evil – ‘Both are sides of same coin’ – beautifully explained truth.
Characterization – All characters are carefully sculpted , for you will remember every single person with names & qualities.
If you have a liking towards history/epics , I strongly recommend you to read this book. Fiction lovers who would like to be taken to a new fantasy world can have a good time with this book.
