About the Author
Amish is a 1974-born, IIM (Kolkata)-educated, boring banker turned happy author. The success of his debut book, The Immortals of Meluha (Book 1 of the Shiva Trilogy), encouraged him to give up a fourteen-year-old career in financial services to focus on writing. He is passionate about history, mythology and philosophy, finding beauty and meaning in all world religions. Amish’s books have sold more than 5 million copies and have been translated into over 19 languages.

But I must admit that when I heard about or saw the copies of #ImmortalIndia , his debut on non-fiction book. I was a bit skeptical of picking it up. I mean I always have kept my favorite authors clearly demarcated as FICTION and NON FICTION writers. Having said that , I must also admit that I am an ardent Amish Fan which made me order #ImmortalIndia on preorder. The author proved me wrong by miles and bounds, #ImmortalIndia proves that there are no Fiction or Non Fiction authors but only great writers with amazing thought processes. The point is further proved the moment you are at bookstore either at a mall or a bookstore you would find this great collection topping the charts / book stalls.
The book is divided into three broad parts i.e. Religion & Mythology, Social Issues and History followed by some insights from Amish under the heading Musings. The collection of his essays , interviews and speeches which were published in recent years are very thought provoking. He talks about (yes he is actually speaking in your head while you are reading) a wide range of subjects from Lord Shiva to LGBT and concludes with Bharat Mata Ki Jai. We are still a young and restless country but we are inwardly and awkwardly closed. Amish has touched upon some topics which by an large society considers to be a taboo but his thoughts resonant with the contemporary thought process.
As I said Amish does not need an introduction, so if you have completed SITA ……………………..…. Go For This great read !!!
The main reason to admire this book a lot is, this book makes us proud to be born in India, this book does'nt just restrict itself to a specific religion and make its readers open minded on different issues.
In Shiva Trilogy Amish dealt between Good and Evil. In The Ram Chandra Series, he is discussing about An Ideal Society. But in this book, i personally found the effort of Amish to make the upcoming generation to know about Mother India and carry the traditions forward by covering all the topics he can.
It is a duty of every Indian to know about this country's greatness and this book helps us in knowing about it.
This is a definite read by everyone. I thank Amish who made us 'think' about our Motherland in this busy life and i expect more such kind of books from him.
And, eagerly waiting for Raavan - Orphan Of Aryavarta.
Regarding his articles on social issues, one can find that Amish Tripathi has a deeper understanding than many Indian youths. He substantiates his argument with facts that why problems like female infanticide, road accidents are actually taking away more lives than the current burning topics in media like “religious intolerance”.
He lets the readers know how the British could colonize India, even they are very few in number compared to Indians, with their illegal opium trade, and the fault of some Indians who could not resist that by vividly explaining the concepts Swadharma and Rajya Dharma. He gave a fitting reply to the people who opine that British rule is advantageous than being disadvantageous with some facts.
It will increase your interest and compel you to know more about indian ancient history. He goes from indian mythology to indian ancient history to current indian social problem.
He talk about LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) problem and present his views very clearly. He talks about why concept of religion is used and needed, he talks about his perception of god. He takes current social problem and relate it to our ancient way of approaching it and makes you believe that almost all problem has solution in our history. He talk about main problem of Hindu, Muslim and christian religion in current days.
He take on youth and present his views which shows he has better understanding of indian history and mythology and he prooves that indian youth who are famously famed as rebelion are right and no where less indian than any old man or person who consider themself more indian.
Book present clear view about aryan, aryan invasion theory (AIT) and aryan migration theory (AMT) and amish conclude that it's a myth and nothing else in his view as he don't see any evidence to proove any of those theories.
In all and all It's worth reading.
