The Immortals of Meluha is the first book of the 'Shiva Trilogy' by Amish Tripathi. For the first time ever, you will come across a 'humane' God. Here is a person who was not born a God but was thrust into the role of one and fulfilled His destiny by making all the right choices and doing his duty towards mankind.
If one thinks about this, we all have the potential to fulfill our destinies by following the path of righteousness too. Perhaps it is along these lines that Amish interprets the common chant of all devout Shaivites 'Har Har Mahadev' to mean 'all of us are Mahadevs'.
Whether the book fires your imagination to dwell on the larger questions of life or not, it certainly is a racy read. Perhaps Amish himself has fulfilled his destiny by writing this lighthearted trilogy that speaks to the current generation in a relatable tone and yet brings with it an underlying message from the beginning of time - the message of karma and dharma, tolerance for all forms of life and the realization that there is indeed a much bigger picture than what meets the eye!
