Shiva has both image of God and human. It is believed that he
was a normal human being and  later
turned into god. According to Hindu mythology, Lord Shiva is the ferocious god,
and he has another mysterious side as a normal being and also the image of peace,
and meditation.  The way of  looking from several angles, we are always
struck with the nature of Shiva. In the view of a normal human being, people
believed 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 story tells
the life of Shiva and once he was  a
warrior later turned into God. It is an adventurous story that happened before
the centuries. Today, people remembers him as Mahdadev, Gods of all Gods. In
this book, Shiva accepts the request from Daksha to save their land from
enemies. Shiva and his tribe are impressed with the Meluhan way of life. He
comes to know that the princess of Meluha, lived her life
with no companion as she is a Vikrama , the punishment for her past life sins . He loves her and decides to marry Sati, and broke the
law of the city. Once,  the inventor
Brahaspati invites them to Mount Mandar, where the secret portion Somras is
manufactured, with the help of Saraswati river. According to this ancient myth,
we can understand that the potion did not affect him but his throat was turned
into blue. He is casual and will lead the Suyavanshis to victory against
their arch rivals Chanravanshis who accompanied with evil assassins – the
Nagas. Unfortunately,  Sati
is attacked by a Naga and the gold coin that leads Shiva to Branga.  In the third book, he meets the chief of Vayuputras, 
Mithra who convinces the Vayuputras that Shiva is the saviour. He takes the Pashupathiastra 
the special weapon  like the Brahmastra  to attack them. The war ends with
Sati’s death and shiva banishes the Somras and hide it from the human vision and
secure it under the city. Shiva retires to Mount Kailash where
he spends his most of his time with the memories of Sati. Sati’s
death is not forgotten and she is later renowned as Goddess Shakti. Creation
and destruction are the two wheels of life. This is common for everyone.
