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

"Hello. This is your morning wake up call. You've neglected to give me breakfast and you've been awake for twenty whole minutes. I'm not happy with the job you're doing, Madhavan. Not happy at all." - Bruno. #fatcat #catsagram #catsofdelhi

  1. Thats funny. Someone once told me that 'Dogs have masters. Cats have staff" - sounds about right! :)

  2. This cat is obviously better behaved than ours who meows and kicks up a ruckus if we oversleep
