With the help of the Writers’ Centre, he will bring the story of King Suheldev to contemporary knowledge, for he feels he was airbrushed out of history books. King Suheldev fought off the Mongol army invading India and bought around 150 years of peace to our country.
Amish is best known for his Meluha Trilogy, a series telling the story of Lord Shiva. He is a devout follower of Lord Shiva and credits all his creativity to him, openly admitting he has more ideas than he can ever pen down. Now he’s decided to accept help in writing so he can bring more of his stories to the world.
He honestly wrote about how the book was written, in an article in a leading date daily, “So, I work with a team of writers, to whom I relate the complete story, and the research material to be read. They write the first draft, which I then work upon. Therefore, the genesis of the story and the final writing is mine, while a team drives the first draft. We have tried our best to ensure that the books from the Writers’ Centre read like any other book of mine. But we honestly state, upfront, that this line of books is the result of team effort, and not my sole work.”
The book is titled ‘Legend of Suheldev: The King Who Saved India’, and was released on 20th June.
He is currently working on his Ram Chandra Series, which gives different perspectives to the Ramayana as each book is told from a different character’s point of view. He assured fans that the book on King Suheldev will not cause delay in the release of the next part of the series as he had help writing it.
