‘Scion of Ikshvaku’ by Amish Tripathi set to be a hit, but may fall short of the previous book’s success, Says Ganesha
The Indian author Amish Tripathi, who shot to fame with his Shiva Trilogy comprising his debut novel The Immortals of Meluha, followed by The Secret of the Nagas and The Oath of the Vayuputras. The Immortals of Meluha was a surprising bestseller, breaking all records within a week of its launch. The Trilogy has become the fastest selling book-series in the history of Indian publishing, with 2.5 million copies in print and over Rs 70 crore in sales. Amish has been ranked by Forbes among the top 100 celebrities in India thrice in a row (in 2012/13/14). Amish’s new book, Scion of Ikshvaku, released on June 22, is the first book in the Ram Chandra Series.

- Currently Jupiter is transiting through the 10th House of Amish’s Surya Kundli.
- Transiting Jupiter will be aspecting Planets posited in the 2nd House of finances till 14th July 2015.
- After that, Jupiter will transit through Leo. It will be aspecting Jupiter placed in the 5th House of his Surya Kundli.
- Retrograde Saturn will be transiting over Rahu through the 2nd House till 1st August 2015.
- Rahu will be transiting over Mars and Venus till January 2016.
Will this book succeed as much, or more than, his earlier works?
- Transiting Jupiter’s square with Natal Sun and Mercury will help this book succeed, but not as much as his previous literary works due to Saturn’s adverse transit through the 2nd House of his Surya Kundli.
- Mercury stands for writing. Transit of Mercury over his Natal Ketu in Taurus also indicates that the book will not be as successful as his previous books.
Having garnered enough national fame, will the book also fetch him international fame?
- Ganesha feels that the chances of getting international fame from the book are not too strong currently, as Rahu transits over Mars and Venus through the 12th House (House of distance places) till January 2016. However, the book may gain international popularity after the aforementioned phase.
Will it win awards like the Booker Prize, etc.
- The transit of Jupiter through the 11th House will be in sextile with the Sun and Mercury post 14th July 2015 and it will be aspecting Jupiter on the 5th August which will be favourable till 11th August 2016. During this time the book may win some prestigious award.
Ganesha wishes Amish Tripathi success for his new book.
With Ganesha’s Grace,
