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

Back to Begumpur Masjid with my mother yesterday evening, enjoyed how surprised she was at the massive courtyard in the middle and we walked to the top of the arches and looked at the view. It really feels like my private monument but sadly I don't think it's going to last for very long. A section of the ceiling has already collapsed, there are houses in the neighbouring village built right up next to it and there are men drinking in every corner. How can I get the Aga Khan Foundation or someone with money interested in this place? It's worth preserving, and if one was to charge an entry fee, there'd be money in it too. Anyone know anyone? #begumpurmasjid #delhidiary via Instagram
