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

Unpacking. This box came out of a side pocket. What if the food's too bland? I may not need chilli but I do need some kind of flavouring, a little zing to bring our the magic of the food. As it turned out I was too shy to bring my dabba out in public so I wondered through Greece ordering anything that said "spicy" and feeling sad when it turned out to be the opposite of what I expected. In berlin though, I cooked a little and added chilli and that was the spag bol I was thinking of all along.
