Summary Of The Book

Meluha Ke Mritunjay is the Hindi version of the first book of the Shiva Trilogy, The Immortals of Meluha.


The story is set in the land of Meluha, based around the present-day Indus Valley Civilization, which is depicted in the book as a huge empire that thrives on the banks of the river Saraswati. Meluha is the land of the Suryavanshis, and the empire is highly developed in all respects and is deemed close to being perfect. Established several centuries before the story begins by the legendary ruler Lord Ram, Meluha is now ruled by Daksha and the chief of his army, Parvateshwar.


However, all is not well in Meluha, as countless perils threaten to tear it apart.


The main problem is that the River Saraswati, around which the civilization grew, is now slowly drying up. Added to this is the ever present danger that the Meluhans face from their old enemies, the Chandravanshis.


The Chandravanshis discreetly attack Meluha with the help of the Nagas, a strange group of people who have been isolated from the society because of their various deformities. These people possess extraordinary skills in martial acts though, and a fierce hatred for all things Meluhan.


The Suryavanshis’ final hope for relief is one mystical legend, which states that in their darkest hour, when all seems to be lost, a hero will emerge, a great warrior who will lead them out of the desperate situation. This prophecy is centered on the fact that their savior will have a blue neck.
The indications from the prophecy seem to point to a nomad from the mountains of the north, called Shiva, to be their savior. Shiva is brought to Meluha, along with his tribe. In his quest to save the legendary kingdom, Shiva has another motivation in addition to being the chosen one - the beautiful princess Sati, who captures his heart.


The Suryavanshis place their fate in Shiva’s hands, and the Chandravanshis and the Nagas prepare for a confrontation with the Meluhans. Shiva has his own internal conflicts to face, besides the epic challenge waiting for him outside the city walls.


'Five Point Someone: What Not To Do At IIT' is a humorous and dark look at the education system in India. The plot revolves around three youngsters who become friends as they struggle to cope with the mind-numbing monotony of studying at one of India's premier engineering colleges. As they toil and plot to cope with the tough competition, will they get left out in the race to success?

In the novel, Chetan Bhagat strikes a chord in the hearts of millions of parents and students across the country with his description of the often senselessly tough and inevitably unimaginative academic life in the country.

The three protagonists in the novel – Hari, Ryan and Alok – enter the portals of the prestigious IIT. But their joy at beating the hordes of aspirants and ending up as the chosen few fades quickly as they realize that coping with the IITs is no easy task. The three of them struggle to cope not just with the difficult academic schedule, but also with difficult teachers like Professor Cherian, the head of their department.

Hari, the narrator of the story, falls in love with Prof Cherian's daughter, Neha, thus allowing Bhagat to introduce a romantic track into the storyline. Will the three friends survive their years in the ruthless world of IIT? Will they triumph against the system or will they succumb to failure? The book takes you on a hilarious but realistic journey as it unravels the travails of the three friends.
