Legend of Suheldev: The King Who Saved India written by Amish on 20 June 2020. The 'Immortals of Meluha' author continues to write the fourth book of the popular Ram Chandra series, the sequel to 'Raavan - Enemy of Aryavarta'.
A Forgotten Hero. An Unforgettable Battle.
India, 1025 AD.
Repeated attacks by Mahmud of Ghazni and his barbaric Turkic hordes have weakened India’s northern regions. The invaders lay waste to vast swathes of the subcontinent—plundering, killing, raping, pillaging. Many of the old Indian kingdoms, tired and divided, fall to them. Those who do fight, battle with old codes of chivalry, and are unable to stop the savage Turkic army which repeatedly breaks all rules to win. Then the Turks raid and destroy one of the holiest temples in the land: the magnificent Lord Shiva temple at Somnath.
At this most desperate of times, a warrior rises to defend the nation.
The ruler of a small kingdom, he sees what must be done for his motherland, and is willing to sacrifice his all for it.
A fierce rebel. A charismatic leader. An inclusive patriot.
Read this blockbuster epic adventure of courage and heroism, a fictional tale based on true events, that recounts the story of that lionhearted warrior and the magnificent Battle of Bahraich.
This is also Amish's first book under the Immortal Writers' Centre a team of exceptional writers assisting Amish in conducting research and preparing first drafts. The story idea comes from Amish, he writes the detailed summary, then the Writer's Centre works on the first draft, then Amish works on it and finalises the manuscript, the publisher said.
The idea behind writing 'Legend of Suheldev', was to bring to national consciousness an inspiring story that has been ignored in the pages of Indian history. A story that has particular relevance today. Legend of Suheldev is the story of a king who united men and women of the nation, irrespective of their religion, caste, region, or status in society. An epic adventure, and an inspiring tale of unity, the message of King Suheldev echoes across the chasm of time: when we Indians are united, we are unbeatable," Tripathi, who is based in London, said.
