The secret of the Nagas
Author: Amish Tripati
Published by: Westland ltd.
The second in the trilogy promised by Amish, I have not the read the first one, but this has inspired me to read it.
Calling an amarachitra katha induced thriller is also belittling the author’s craft. Though I guess that is the nearest identification that our generation that grew on amarchitra katha can give it.
Amish has beautifully demystified the mythology making it very interesting. If I were to call it a mythological thriller I would be ignoring the imparting of philosophy.
Amish has definitely understood the ancient art of storytelling, in the tradition of Vishnu Sharma and Dandin, of dispensing philosophy and politics through the vehicle of trendy story telling.
The author has presented the legend of Shiva-Sati along with Daksha,Kali, and Ganesh very craftily and compellingly.
I am definitely looking forward to reading the third book The oath of the Vayuputras.
