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

Hear ye! Hear ye! *rings bell*
As for Silver Surfer, since there are questions. NO, he is not me, because, hello, who here thinks I would actually know comic book heroes? Raise your hands. He is friend I made on the internet (Forgive my lack of grammar, please, I'm very buzzed and have just been hit on by a woman for the first time in my life and have also been (very slightly) tempted. But I didn't do anything. (More about this later). Anyway, so Silver Surfer totally exists, and HE IS NOT ME, so stop asking, okay? I realise his first post might have sounded a little like mine, but HE ISN'T ME. Now that we've got that cleared up. Next Sunday, this Sunday, just let me know.
I'm most jealous at the Mumbai and Bangalore and every other city blogger's meets that have been happening. I want to have a "blogging-only" conversation too! Without people asking me "So.. um.. what's a blog? Like your personal diary or something?" I want to put faces to names I read regularly. I want a Bloggers Meet. Okay?
So lets. Lets, do! I propose Sunday evening, Mocha. Mocha is nice and central and you can smoke there and they have very nice shakes. Okay? Please? I'm very bored and it'll be such fun!
If you're bored too, and you want blogger type conversation, email me. My email address is on the sidebar. If you can't be arsed to email, comment. Yay! Okay, let's do this.
And since I do know some bloggers personally, I'm going to do some emotional arm-twisting. You know who y'all are. Mocha, Sunday, don't ditch.
ps. Must link to this post, which made me feel excellent that not everyone is scared of screaming. You should read it too. Some of the sisterhood are so very brave that it makes me feel wimpy.
