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

Okay, this is it
I'm thinking of making it a series even-- The Compulsive Confessor Does Eygpt or some such. So camera and laptop are being carried, if I get good wifi signal somewhere, I might do a post from there also.
But don't go away, I'll have tons of stories when I return. Today is Small's happy to you also, so if you know her, say happy birthday quickly.
Also, technical stuff, my cell will be switched off till I return and I'm disabling comments. So if you have something you want to say to me, email please? I'm trying to set up a vacation response thingummy, but I'll catch up on correspondence once I return in supereffecient manner, god promise, mother isswear.
