Shiva Trilogy By Amish Tripathi has a place on the bookshelves of people for quite a sometime now. The author and the series itself had a major hype when they started out and have secured place in innumerable Bestsellers’ List. But is the epic drama all good as it appears to be?
Since, I had absolutely no foundation about Shiva and his excursion, I read a couple of pages and dropped it down. Ever so often later a friend teaches me what the books hold and I start again and this time I was unable to stand back until I finished each part.
The primary release of the set of three being, “The Immortals of Meluha” which is trailed by “The Secret of the Nagas” and the last one being the “The Oath of the Vayuputras” by the creator Amish Tripathi.
Amish Tripathi with his useful tidbits has insightfully drafted the exercises for life at various stages in the set of three. The book has some truly snappy lines :
“Evil isn’t an individual, it is a thought or conviction.”
“You don’t live with the results of others’ karma. You live with the results of your own.”
“Anything in overabundance is consistently destructive.”
Every single character has been wonderfully made, depicted and portrayed. Be it Sati, the better 50% of Shiva. Or Veer Bhadra, Shiva’s dear companion. Or then again be it the hooded Naga. The portrayal leaves the perusers with a great deal of creative mind. Shiva, the Neelkanth alongside his confederates traverse the length and breadth of India looking for the fiendishness and discover that nothing appears to be the manner in which they appear. There is a more profound way of thinking, behind the meaning of Evil.
Effect astute, the principal book made a great showing of charming the perusers into the book with its straightforward conversational composing style, amazing chronicled and legendary portrayals and nitty gritty portrayals.
The second in the set of three was an amazing presentation of the writer’s ability to continue perusers’ enthusiasm with well honed exciting bends in the road of the plot. In all the three, the second in the set is the quickest paced story-line; with some surprising turn every third section.
The third one, albeit a piece drag yet that aspect of the story which wraps up the set of three in a satisfying way and closes how a man turns out to be so adorable that we actually love and dread right up ’til today.
The part I admired the most in the series is the logical thinking behind the positive and negative impacts of the mysterious beverage, Somras.
While perusing the books, in my psyche’s eye it was a film playing out. I could envision the characters, the urban communities, the waterways and the wars so distinctively all through the book.
This series is without a doubt worth having as an assortment.
