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

On the weekend

Considering NO-ONE commented on yesterday's post (Hima, April, I'm very disappointed!) I'm just going to continue with where I left off yesterday and tell you about the rest of my weekend.
Oh, my babel fish has suddenly transformed into German. Very wierd. I might need a babel fish for my babel fish!

Kelso was so sweet, he kept blushing whenever I flirted with him and when he left (his CURFEW was 1.30, oh god, I'm putting the moves on someone with an effing curfew!) I said, "Oh don't go, you've never partied with me and Dee." And he smiled with his dimples showing and said: "Well that will change". Awwwwwwwwwww... *mush*
But, damn, he's into some girl at his college. So no whippersnapper love for Mynna.
Okay the other guy I met was on Sunday at this coffee shop I really like called Mocha. His name is Shiva and he's a friend of Dee's (this is where if he's reading this, he suddenly starts paying attention!) He's nice, and reads and all, but as he didn't fail to inform me within the first half-an-hour of our meeting, he's "not into girls with short hair". :P whatever. Anyway, I've been complaining about the lack of male friends in my life, so there could be possibility there. (At ease, Shiva).
So that's what's been happening.


  1. hey blame my friggin cache, couldnt see any updates on your blog till the last night.. made up for it though :)

    and the takeaway from your beautiful post for me :

    "I just feel this need for male contact recently, more so than I ever have. ...I almost said, "Hold me".... It's been a month(six months) now.."

    i can sooo identify with what you are sayin, gurl!

  2. Hey! Your comments says '0', but there are comments when you click on them. After haloscan, is it blogger now!!?

  3. hey, why dont you get a doodleboard for your blog? that way i can let you know when i was here lookin for a new post! :)

  4. Geez! Don't rush the male "hold me" stuff, please. I'm married (settled down, a pasture horse, old lady) and I think back on my youth and wish that I had not rushed it. Do you know what is worse than not having someone hold you? Having the SAME PERSON holding you ALL OF THE TIME whether you want them to or not. Be thankful that your nights consist of adventures and a social life instead of nights filled with the smell of poopy diapers, the sounds of your youngest gnawing on your breasts topped off with a bed full of tiny bodies.


Thanks for your feedback! It'll be published once I approve it. Inflammatory/abusive comments will not be posted. Please play nice.
