Amish is an IIM (Kolkata)educated, boring banker turned happy author. The success of his debut book, The Immortals of Meluha (Book 1 of the Shiva Trilogy), encouraged him to give up a fourteen-year-old career in financial services to focus on writing. He is passionate about history, mythology and philosophy, finding beauty and meaning in all world religions.

Amish has most recently written the Shiva Trilogy (The Immortals of Meluha, The Secret of the Nagas & The Oath of the Vayuputras), which have sold over a million copies in the Indian subcontinent since 2010. The books that he plans to write in the future are also in the areas of mythology & history.

Amish lives in Mumbai with his wife, Preeti and son, Neel.

“The opposite of love is not hate. Hate is just love gone bad. The actual opposite of love is apathy. When you don't care a damn as to what happens to the other person.”
Amish Tripathi, The Secret of the Nagas

“Whether a man is a legend or not is decided by history, not fortune tellers.”
Amish Tripathi, The Immortals of Meluha

“A person's ethics and character are not tested in good times. It is only in bad times that a person shows how steadfast he is to his dharma.”
Amish Tripathi, The Immortals of Meluha
