The notion of god is challenged both from within and outside the framework of accepted notions and set of beliefs. Restructured myth keeps on debunking the established version. The pursuit is undertaken by Shiva, the protagonist. The novels are manifestations of his journey.
In the course of these journeys, he discovers both the nature of the evil, and of his own identity. It starts from the Valley of Mansarovar, and then he visits the valley of Vol. Places like Ayodhya, Kashi, Branga, Panchavati, Dandakaranya reveal the nature of the nation to him, as well as his own identity and existence start being unfolded.
The journey brings him back to the source from where it began one day. The travel conveys him to his destination. He lives for the purpose he was made for. Along with it, the search for identity is underway. The position of a foreigner probably helped him to eke out the truths; we must not forget that the earlier Mahadev also was an outsider, who descended from Pariha.
The texts deserve to be treated carefully as representations of empires with different ruling and social system. The Immortals of Meluha begins with the descriptions of life in the tribes of Tibet.
Internal conflict and unrest among the tribes predominates their lives. It takes the best of both the Suryavanshi and Chandravashi way of lives and creates one for itself.

In Meluha, the king is the ruler. Every subject is bound to follow the rules as propagated by the king. Even the king and his family are also supposed to follow all the decorum.
Theirs is an organised system-bound life.
In Meluha, the society is at a stable state. Swadweepans have ultimate disparate social classes. It looks like a state of frenzy to the Vol. Freedom for the wretched to also have dignity. On a surface outlook, Meluha appears to be the perfect governance system one can ever have. But with gradual progress of the narrative, the lacunas make their presence prominent; the kind propagates of equality in his kingdom, but in reality exploits the system in favour of his own family.
I want the entire vikarma law scrapped. Nobody will be a vikarma from now on.
Bad fate can strike anyone. It is ridiculous to blame their past lives for it. This was unexpected. Like all Meluhans, he too was superstitious about the vikarma. His displeasure was not with the vikarma law itself but with his daughter being classified as one. The proclamation will state that the entire vikarma law has been scrapped. The king was affectionate towards its subjects but that could not stop him from treating his own family as a privileged one. Daksha was well aware of his power position and know how to exploit it.
The same attitude reflects as he wishes to attack Swadweep and make it a part of Meluha. Swadweepans were not in the dire necessity of being governed by Meluhan system. The Meluhan emperor shows the attitude of the coloniser that makes him feel the urge to unite the free nations under one flag and rule over the entire dynasty.
One must mention the Vol. Kashi becomes a point of confluence of every kind of beliefs, castes and creeds. The liberalism practiced by Kashi does not make it vulnerable; rather this liberal framework makes it a place of ultimate peace and stability.
The attitude of the king and the utopian Ram Rajya turns itself into dystopia. But the state provides the basic necessities.
The Secret of the Nagas
And in that, there is complete equality. The projected reality differs from the actual reality that differentiates them from the other dynasties. The Meluhan emperor intended to use the myth of Neel-kanth for his own purpose.
The power position alters as soon as Shiva starts discovering that the nature of evil is truly a relative one.
There can be nothing like the absolute divine or the absolute evil. Tripathi structures an age old story within a modern perspective which allows interpretation and speculations, keeping in mind the contemporary socio-political scenario. Gender positions in the trilogy require attention. Much has not been discussed whether the dynasties followed patriarchy or matriarchy; but keeping in mind the general description, it can be assumed that patriarchy was the basic functional principle of these societies.
Patriarchy was used primarily to demonstrate the prevalent social structure, not to marginalise women and their voices. We can find a wide range of feminine portrayals in the Vol.
While talking about the Tibetan tribes, we can be sure of their patriarchal social structure. On the other hand, Meluha had highly revered female medical practitioner like Ayurvati and Kankhala who adorned the most important places in the Meluhan court, by taking care of all the administrative, protocol and revenue matters.
The chief protagonist is portrayed in a perfect blend of femininity and self-control. Sati fights her own battles. She is not overtly 'fertile'; and she does not depend on anybody to protect her. She is also the embodiment of truth, virtue, morality, beauty as well as 'softer' emotions. She is not someone who needs to be taken care of. Rather, she is the most perfect person in the entire narrative. We must also take a look at the portrayal of characters like Veerini, and Renuka, mother of Parshuram.
She could not even raise her voice over her husband in order to live with her children. For her, motherhood provides her the essential agency and empowerment. Her voice only starts finding its place when her children are in danger.
The Naga woman reveals herself to be Kali, Sati's twin sister and the man as Ganesh, Sati's child from her first marriage believed to have died at birth. Both were denounced by Daksha since born with deformities. Kali had two extra functioning hands while Ganesh's face resembled that of an elephant's.
An overwhelmed Sati brings back Kali and Ganesh to Kashi. At Branga, Shiva meets the recluse bandit Parashuram, who can enlighten him about the Nagas and the medicine.
Praise for the Shiva Trilogy
After defeating Parashuram, Shiva comes to know that he is a Vasudev, the group of scholars who have been guiding him on his journey. Parashuram is also surprised to see Shiva as the fabled Neelkanth; in remorse for his actions, he severs his left hand.
He gives the recipe of the medicine to the people of Branga and joins Shiva's entourage. Shiva recognizes Ganesh as the Naga who attacked Sati and as the supposed killer of his friend, the scientist Brahaspati. Enraged, he leaves Sati and takes up residence at the Branga locality. One day, while playing with Kartik at a local park, Ganesh saves them from a lion attack. Shiva forgives him and together with Sati, confronts Daksha, who confesses to murdering Sati's first husband and denouncing Kali and Ganesh.
Daksha blames Shiva for causing distrust between him and Sati; he is asked to leave for Meluha. Shiva travels to Panchavati under the guidance of Kali, who is the Naga queen and knows how to reach the capital through the treacherous Dandak Forest. On their journey, the entourage is attacked from the river side by a cache of ships containing the weapons of mass destruction known as Daivi Astra that was once forbidden by Lord Rudra, the legendary supreme ruler of India.
After fleeing from the attack and safely reaching Panchavati, Shiva and Sati suspect Daksha to be behind this.
Kali takes Shiva to a nearby school in the capital, where he finds Brahaspati, perfectly alive and teaching a class. Characters and locations[ edit ] Tripathi believes that "Myths are nothing but jumbled memories of a true past. A past buried under mounds of earth and ignorance. He is a Tibetan immigrant to Meluha and the chief of the Guna tribe.
On arriving in Meluha and consuming the Somras a potion , his throat turns blue making him the Neelkanth of the Meluhan legend, which speaks of the appearance of Neelkanth as a destroyer of evil. The Meluhans end up believing that Shiva would be their saviour. Sati — A Meluhan princess, she is the daughter of King Daksha. Shiva falls in love with her but could not marry her initially because of a law that considers her to be a Vikarma, an untouchable; he later marries her going against the law.
According to the Meluhans, Vikarmas are people who bear misfortunes in this life due to sins of their past births. Sati is a skilled swords-woman and is very brave since childhood.
A loyal devotee of Shiva, who is often considered for his opinion and suggestions by Shiva. Veer Bhadra — A captain of Shiva's army and his close childhood friend. He was later renamed as Veer Bhadra, a title earned by once defeating a tiger singlehandedly. Though he does not believe the legend of the Neelkanth, he believes that Shiva is capable of taking Meluha to its new glory.
Daksha prajapati — The King of the Meluhans, he is appreciative of every effort that Shiva does to save his country. Sati annoyed me a bit in this book. Anandamayi, however, was a delight to read about.
I couldn't help but grin every time that feisty, saucy girl sauntered onto the page! The author often uses the story to put forth his opinion on many issues - like Karma, ethics, consequentialism, existentialism and the balance of Good and Evil.
Though it is clearly intended to make you think, sometimes it does get a bit too much. I get that the author has tried to give the story as modern a take as possible, but I can't quite digest the fact that these people know of "radio waves" and "accumulator machines" OR that they say things like "You're a year old virgin?? Just me? But maybe that's just me.The plot is very exciting, imaginative, and interesting.
Brahma resorted to a lie, and angered Shiva greatly who cursed that no one would ever pray to him. Swadweep — The empire of the Chandravanshis, also known as the island of the individual. And this has been taken care of while making the cover pages as well. To view it, click here.
