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.
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.
Obsession with his beloved child Sati, Daksha could cross any restrain. Veerini acts as a logical restrain to him. She decides to live the same fate with her subjects.
Portrayal of Renuka, a Kshatriya lady is really important here. She dared to go against her own clan for the sake of her love, and also pursued her husband to live her life in her own terms.
She advocates her own voice for her freedom. That brings her the horrific end: honour killing. In the texts, we can find that the Vol. The law of Vikarma is the obvious point being referred to here. Tripathi makes the marginalisation not merely in terms of social class, but in terms of the experiences of lives. He explores the humiliation and subjugation experienced by marginal people and accommodates the contemporary social reality of untouchability.
Even by making the princess a Vikarma, the author probably propagates the surface reality of equality in the texts.

One must notice that the rule was diluted by Shiva, an outsider. Shiva fights for the powerless, the victimised, the voiceless marginalised people, and by providing them a better chance to live, churns out the best of humanity out of them. In a nation with histories of untouchable clans, such treatment of rewriting history and challenging them from a position of power requires to be read carefully. One must take a look the way the first impressions about the major places are marked in the narrative.
Each city is marked with some specific architectural patterns. The Meluhan Empire is marked by the use of a particular set of monochromatic colours and structures. Devagiri is described in The Immortals of Meluha in the following words: The blank walls that faced the main road bore striking black etching depicting the different legends of the Suryavanshis, while the walls themselves were painted in the sober colours of grey, light blue, light green, or white.
The most common background colour though appeared to be blue. The holiest colours for the Meluhans were blue, denoting the sky. Green representing nature, happened to be placed just Vol. Meluhans liked to divine a grand design in every natural phenomenon and thought it wondrous that blue was placed just before green in the colour spectrum. Just as the sky happened to be above the earth.
At first glance, it promised much. The outer walls were thick and looked astonishingly powerful.
Each alternate brick, however, was painted in pristine white, the royal colour of the Chandravanshis. Numerous banners, tinted in pink and blue,. Everything was painted bright — from orange buildings to parrot green ceilings to shocking pink windows!
Civic-minded rich Swadweepans had created grand public gardens, temples, theatres and libraries, naming them after their family members, since they had received no help from the government. The Meluhans, despite finding it strange that a public building should be named after a private family, were awed by the grandeur of these structures.
A vibrant city, with exquisite beauty existing side by side with hideous ugliness, Ayodhya disgusted and yet fascinated the Meluhans. The colours used by Meluha are in harmony with the nature. It reflects their orderly, rule bound, synchronised nature.
They are aware of their lack of order in their lives, and they celebrate their extravagance. Beyond the trees lay the plethora of temples. Branga again requires to be mentioned. Despite their superb condition, these public buildings were rarely used. There were no poor or rich amongst the fifty thousand Nagas who lived there.
Apart from this, Tripathi himself mentions in an interview that the covers of the books implicate a particular journey. The first book of the trilogy uses a blue cover, the second one is with a green cover, and the last one features a red cover. The author explains, all these colors belong to the additive color system, which denotes a journey from black to white, i.
Books are promoted much before their publication with the aid of mass media penetration to the point of pre-publication saturation. Books have started being launched with respective audio, visual and audio-visual files.
The movie rights are bought even before the publication of the entire series. The marketing strategy opted for this particular series of books was myriad and mind bogglingly lucrative to say the least. For the first book, a semi-animated graphic trailer was released.
For the second book, movies-like trailer was created, and screened in public forums like theatres and multiplexes. The trilogy has already gained the author an amount of more than fifty crore, even without taking in account the movie adaptation rights.
The translations of The Immortals of Meluha and The Secret of the Nagas are the first translated books to enter the Top 15 national bestsellers lists. This book series has instigated the creation of a music album dedicated to it. Even there are ceremonies for the publication of the book cover that takes place much before the publication of the book. The publication of the books becomes the major literary events of the year. Sanghi, in his texts, The Krishna Key, makes a number of references to the Indus valley civilisation as explained in the Shiva trilogy, without making reference to either of the books or the author.
But the explanations and the historical framework has been sanctioned by Sanghi in his work.
The Shiva Trilogy posits the reason behind the destruction of Meluha as being fallout of a nuclear blast. Sanghi, in his fiction, mentions that archeological excavations have proved the existence of some nuclear blast in the remote past in the Indus valley. Even Somras is mentioned as being an evil influence in the ancient past. Plenty of such intertextual references run through the fiction by Sanghi. In this way, the neo-mythical writers have structured a parallel domain of logic and reason, which offers a fresh and alternative outlook to our past.
The intertextual references make the reading as well as the interpretation even more pleasurable. The traditional outlook to western literature, both as a point of reference and inspirational vantage point has been shaken off. The writers attempt to glorify the nation, Vol.
Myths are turned into history; they are turned into the framework of human experience.Welcome back. I couldn't help but grin every time that feisty, saucy girl sauntered onto the page!
Its good Masala. The book's blurb gives you enough indication, and then some, t It isn't often one comes across a book by an Indian author, with a sequel. The exclusion and inclusion of the marginal, eradication of social inequalities are studied too.
The revered god Shiva turns into a tribal leader. Though the other two books are still to. I was eager to know what happens next, how the holes get filled up.
