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

The real Berliner. One of the biggest legends about Berlin was when JFK was here and he said, "ich bin ein Berliner." but did he mean a citizen of the city or a jelly doughnut? Now he's dead so we may never know. Meanwhile, the lady who sold this to us was quite sniffy about the name. "it's just called a pancake not a Berliner," she said, and when K insisted, she added, "maybe it's just something West Berliners say." point of note: We're in West Berlin. #traveldiary #ifitwalkslikeadoughnut #berlin
