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

The Bhopal Tribal Museum or Museum of Man, to give it it's accurate name, turned out to be that lovely thing: a complete surprise. People told me it was nice, but I was expecting cheesy, not these life size completely accurate installations of Madhya Pradesh and Chhatisgarh tribals. Even the smell was accurate, as the artists used material only found in their villages. Photo one of many: a life size representation of a bridal bracelet, given to a bride on her wedding night and decorated with symbols of her new home. #traveldiary #museum #bhopal
