About the Book: The Meluhan Tablet
Professor Ramesh Chhibber, a historian and archaeologist on theverge of deciphering the Harappan script, has been murdered. Andhis colleague Professor Modhak has simply disappeared. Was heKilled? Was he kidnapped? Is the rumour that the professors haddeciphered the Meluhan Tablet, now lost, the provocation for thecrimes? Delhis most famous Dynamic Detectives takes charge of theinvestigations; their two ace sleuths-Roshan and Shobha-are alsoaminent archaeologists. Soon the sleuths stumble on a giganticsecret: the existence of an ancient secret society, the oldest inthe world, with a hidden agenda. There are many layers to MathewPanamkats Meluhan Tablet, just like Umberto Ecos The Name of theRose. At one level it is an unpretentious whodunit laced withnail-biting suspense. At another, it is a travel experience thattakes the reader to exotic locations in India, exotic because theyare places of natural beauty steeped in history. The reader travelsthrough physical spaces and through time in the pages of thenovel-through the rocks and jungles of Idukki present andprecolonial, to Bhimbetka near Bhopal and from there to the timeswhen people documented their life with drawings on its cave walls;these are just two examples, the book has so many more. At a yetanother level, the book is a journey into the Harappan times andits advanced civilisation; Meluha was what the people called theirland. As Roshan and Shobha chase the mystery and take us on thatexotic journey, we discover there is also a sweet love story tuckedinto it. The Meluhan Tablet therefore is a heady mix and anexperience.
