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

Make like a sommelier and wine
Anyway. That was a very long digression to get to my point. Which was about the cool part about being an author/blogger/general writer-at-large. I got an email last week talking about the Sulafest (which I had heard people making plans about and was very jealous) and asking if I wanted to come and write about it for my blog. If I did, they'd send me passes. One of my new year's resolutions was to always say 'yes' if a new experience presented itself. And I didn't need much convincing for this one. I was mentally checking off all the things I like: travelling, impromptu trips, wine, music, shopping? What's not to love? JC decided he didn't want to go at the last minute and so I made some calls and got a new friend, Christine, to come with.
