Accordingto Hindu mythology, Lord Shiva is the Destroyerand the most important God in the Holy Trinity, the other two being Brahma theCreator and Vishnu the Protector. Lord Shiva is no ordinary god; he isvery mysterious and some myths believed that Shiva as a normal human beingand later turned into god. Though peoplebelieved, Lord Shiva is the ferocious god, but he has another mysterious sideas a normal being and famous for meditation. The way of looking from several angles, we are alwaysstruck with the nature of Shiva. In the view of a normal human being, peoplebelieved him as a warrior and it is reflected in the Amish’s The Shiva Trilogy. It consists into three books, called ‘The Immortals of Meluha’, ‘The Secret of the Nagas’, and ‘The Oath of the Vayuputras’.
The storyis about the normal side of Shiva as a warrior later turned into legend thenGod. It is an adventurous story that happened before the centuries. Todaypeople remembers him as Mahdadev, Gods of Gods.
In this book, Shivapromised Daksha to save the land fromenemies. Shiva and his tribe are impressed with the Meluhan way of life. Hecomes to know that the princess of Meluha, ordained to a life ofloneliness as she is a Vikrama . He decides tomarry Sati, and broke the law of the city. Once, the inventor Brahaspati invites them to MountMandar, where the Somras is manufactured, with the help of Saraswati river.
Throughthis story, we can understand that the potion did not affect him but his throatwas turned into blue. Meanwhile, Shiva will lead the Suyavanshis tovictory against their arch rivals Chanravanshis who have stooped low enough toeven recruit the brutal, evil assassins – the Nagas. Unfortunately, Sati is attacked bya Naga and the gold coin that leads Shiva to Branga. In the 3rd book, he meets the chief of Vayuputras, Mithra who convinces the Vayuputras that Shiva is the real Neelkanth andgives him the Pashupathiastra whichacts on a specific target, rather than annihilating everything like theBrahmastra. Thus, The war ends with Sati’s death, Shiva unleashes the astra and ends Devagiri’s history, alongwith the Somras manufacturing units hidden beneath the city.
Shiva retires to Mount Kailash wherehe lives the rest of his days peacefully, though missing Sati every day. Sati’s death is not forgotten and she is later renowned asGoddess Shakti. Creationand destruction are the two ends of the same moment. The creation and the destruction is the circle of life.
However, ShivaTrilogy is a philosophical fiction.
