1900 BC: the once-proud Suryavanshi rulers of the Meluha Empire are in dire peril. The empire's primary river, the Saraswathi, is slowly drying up. There are devastating terrorist attacks from the east, the land of the Chandravanshis - and to make matters worse, the Chandravanshis appear to have allied with the Nagas, an ostracised race of deformed humans with astonishing martial skills.

If you aren't convinced about the Indian mythologies or if you are an atheist, give this book a try and you would know all the ways that the concept of god can be put to good use. Hold your prejudices and give this book a try. You will fall in love with the concept of Lord Shiva.

This is not a book this is probably already a movie directed by directors of TROY. Just kidding.. An amazing book for any book lover. It is written so beautifully that you would feel probably you are watching a movie and not just reading it . I have gifted and recommended this book to many book lovers and all of them had the same response.

Other than the swearing, I really like th ... more
