Review of Meluha by Amish Tripathi

By Kirti Shree Chawra

Hindu mythology and contemporary storytelling are combined in the book “Meluha” to provide an engaging and fascinating read. The novel is the first of a series called the Shiva series and was written by Amish Tripathi.

The plot revolves around the adventures of Shiva, a Tibetan immigrant who is brought to the country of Meluha by a group of people who think he can save them. The people of Meluha live in a utopian country where there is no sickness or old age, and a good and fair king governs. The Nagas, a race of malevolent creatures out to ruin Meluha's prosperity and serenity, pose a threat to the region, though. Shiva must employ his strength and abilities to aid the Meluhans in destroying the Nagas and defending their territory.

The creation of Tripathi's world is one of the elements that distinguishes Meluha. With its own mythology, traditions, and rituals, he has built a complex and well-rounded world. It is simple for the reader to get immersed in the characters' journey because they are well-developed and relatable.

The book's flawless integration of mythology, history, and fiction is another quality that makes it stand out. Hindu mythology has been included into his fictitious story along with other components, giving it a fresh and interesting spin.

In conclusion, Meluha is a work that is highly recommended. With well-rounded characters and a vividly attracted environment, it is a thrilling journey that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I strongly suggest it to everyone who appreciates a good fantasy book since it is a fantastic illustration of how mythology can be incorporated into contemporary storytelling.
