My latest book is The One Who Swam With The Fishes.
"A mesmerizing account of the well-known story of Matsyagandha ... and her transformation from fisherman’s daughter to Satyavati, Santanu’s royal consort and the Mother/Progenitor of the Kuru clan." - Hindustan Times
"Themes of fate, morality and power overlay a subtle and essential feminism to make this lyrical book a must-read. If this is Madhavan’s first book in the Girls from the Mahabharata series, there is much to look forward to in the months to come." - Open Magazine
"A gleeful dollop of Blytonian magic ... Reddy Madhavan is also able to tackle some fairly sensitive subjects such as identity, the love of and karmic ties with parents, adoption, the first sexual encounter, loneliness, and my favourite, feminist rage." - Scroll

Of course, there are brief respites. It does rain and then it's excellent. The wind seems to kiss you as it whistles past, you feel like a total cruiser in your car, with the music on high to embarrassingly enough 'Milkshake'. (I cannot get enough of this song! There's something so profound in the lyrics-- My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard, they like it better than yours, damn right it's better than yours, I could teach you but I'd have to charge--- what does it mean??? But the tune is so catchy I don't really care.)
Anyhoo, as I was saying about the rain. It's nice and all, but it means a change in season and with all the temperatures going in and out, what with walking from an office the temperature of a fridge to the car where I never have enough money to have enough fuel to put on the A/C. So then by the time I reach home I'm all hot and sweaty anyway. And these days, since my flatmate is away I've moved back in with my parents, where my bedroom does have an A/C, so ergo... frozen me with frozen sinus glands which then unfreeze painfully.
What's the weather like where you are?
