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

Today in Photo

More from yesterday's visit to the Museum of Man. This is a Bhil hut, complete with termite eaten wood posts on the outside. You could walk right in and look at the layout--most tribals prefer to have the cooking area also be where the Goddess hangs out but I think it's the Bhils where everyone in the tribe shares one central courtyard where they gather every evening. #installation #bhopal #traveldiary
