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


Today is the day of the Athens Polytechnic Rising, a student uprising that happened in the 70s against fascism. The crowd marches through the city, often there are police protests and the touristy area in which we're staying has everyone shuttering early. It *could* get iffy, but not to worry, we are back in the hotel and chilling now. A real Greek protest for our last day here. #traveldiary #greece
