What makes this book, and the following two, a good read is the simplicity of language and an easy and racy narrative style. The plot hardly ever slows down enough for the reader to lose interest as one event leads to another. The story is set in a country not yet named India and at a time when the mountainous abode of Shiva was not known by the name of Tibet. Don't try to dig deep for factual data as this is not a historical report!
Coming from a Hindu family, I grew up listening to valiant tales of the Gods and Goddesses on how they punish the wrong doers and shower blessings and boons on the righteous. The mythological stories I heard and read were always very formal in their tone and structure because our deities are meant to be worshiped and held in respectful awe. So it comes as a bit of a jolt when you read about the Shiva in this book casually swearing a la modern mortals - 'dammit', 'rubbish', 'bloody hell', 'wow' and 'what a woman' and enjoying a good time with his marijuana chillum.
For the first time ever, I have come across a 'humane' God. Here is a person who was not born a God but was thrust into the role of one and fulfilled His destiny by making all the right choices and doing his duty towards mankind. If one thinks about this, we all have the potential to fulfil our destinies by following the path of righteousness too. They reach the city of Srinagar and are received there by Ayurvati , the Chief of Medicine of the Meluhans.
Shiva and his tribe are impressed with the Meluhan way of life. On their first night of stay at Srinagar, the Gunas wake up amid high fever and sweating. The Meluhans, under Ayurvati's orders, carry on the healing process. However, Ayurvati finds out that Shiva is the only one devoid of these symptoms and that his throat has turned blue. The Meluhans announce Shiva as the Neelkanth, their fabled savior.
Shiva is then taken to Devagiri , the capital city of Meluha. While on his way there,he decides to halt at a place on the bank of a river. While Nandi is resting,she goes out to explore the area.
After a while,he comes across a temple. There he encounter a mysterious woman, who though very beautiful, has a look of penance on her face. He immediately falls in love with her. When he asks her name and when can he see her again,her friend answers that when he reaches Devgiri,he can ask anyone where he can find Lady Sati and they'll tell him where to find her.
He meets King Daksha,after reaching Devgiri. While staying there, Shiva and his comrade,Nandi come to know that the woman who Shiva met at the temple,Sati is actually Princess Sati , the daughter of Daksha and is a vikarma , an untouchable in this life due to sins of her past births.
Shiva tries to court her, but she rejects his advances. Ultimately Shiva decides that will woe her and also marry her,even though the Vikarma law doesn't allow it. During his stay in Devagiri, Shiva comes to know of the treacherous wars that the Chandravanshis are carrying on the Meluhans.
Brahaspati invites Shiva and the royal family on an expedition to Mount Mandar , where the legendary Somras is manufactured using the waters of the Saraswati river.
Shiva learns that the potion which made his throat turn blue was actually undiluted Somras, which can be lethal when taken in its pure form. However, Shiva was unaffected, which was the first sign that he was the Neelkanth. He also learns that Somras was the reason why the Meluhans lived for so many years. Brahaspati and Shiva develop a close friendship and the royal family returns to Devagiri.
At last,Shiva declares himself to be the Neelkanth in front of everyone. Daksha then advises him to travel and explore the entire kingdom of Meluha.
They visit many different cities,where Shiva is welcomed with great pomp and many pujas are held in his honor. During a similar puja in a city,a man disrespectfully talks to Shiva for allowing a vikarma Sati to attend the puja.
Enraged by the disrespect shown by the man toward Shiva,Sati challenges the man for an Agni Pariksha. Even though the chances for Sati's victory were low;she wins the Agni Pariksha and instead of killing the man,she forgives him. On their way to another city,the group comes across a village under attack.
As they rush to the save the village,they find out the it is being attacked by the Nagas and some Chandravanshi soldiers. During the battle,a naga fires an agnibaan towards Shiva.
