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


My little vampire and his afternoon nap. Squishy has an overbite and slightly crossed eyes and is the world's cuddliest cat. I read somewhere that since black cats gave been so persecuted all through the ages, only the friendliest ones survived and passed on that DNA. I don't know if that's true, since we've only ever had the one black cat, but if you have a #housepanther too, let me know! #catsagram #squishy
