The secret of the immortals

It took Amish Tripathi more than just a leap of faith to transition from a career in finance to fiction. And only after Tripathi learned to shift his writing strategy from the arrogance of the creator to the humility of the witness did his debut book, 'The Immortals of Meluha,' get published and immediately became a bestseller. Now his 'Shiva' trilogy is on its way to completion with the release of the second book 'The Secret of the Nagas'.
