Dr. G.P. This is all imagination but very cleverly linked to some Hindu Gods. It is one's guess whether the majority likes it or not but the story has been catching. One remembers the related God at every step. It is good none of the Gods has been downgraded in the name of fiction.

Stories of Gods are also imagination as they are without any scientific basis. In this way there are no facts but all fiction.
Satya Mittinti This is based on Shivapurana ! Hence you can't say its imaginary, but every part of this is logically linked and well put ! Excellent write up..
Vaibhav Vats This book is fiction based on famous Hindu scripture Shiv-Purana. All the character of this book exist there.
Sai Kiran Apart from many historic facts, the author have also linked many scientific explanations in this book. But this mostly proves inconvenient for an ancient story, especially when he uses the most scientific words. But the way he links them is simply brilliant!
Prashant This book is a fictionalized version and a modern take on legend of God Shiva. Though this book may be fiction, but the incidents, characters from the novel are inspired by mythological stories. As I am reading Immortals of meluha, it is slowly cultivating an interest in my mind to know the unknown facts of our indian mythology and especially about the legend of shiva. Hats off to author amish for coming with such a novel idea on mythology and history.
Ashrita K Yes in a way,it's ra later to shiva for example they refer to shiva as the neelkanth and we actually call him neelkanth.but few of them don't exist
Anushka Yes, there are a lot of actual facts in this book. Its is intertwined with the actual mythology. Like the God names, the relation between them. Also the Hindu 'practices' as we call them, are well written with scientific proof to each of them. It also offers insights to certain aspects of mythology that is not known commonly.
Anil Kumar A very good book, must read. The Author has portrait the characters very well, it keeps you going till the very end where it gets more interesting. A very fine ending wherein it keeps you craving to read the next part.
