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


In all the reports about pollution being over acceptable limits, I was very pleased to see this little guy in my terrace garden this morning. This is the lemon pansy (I have a butterfly book which is invaluable to identifying all of them), a common species found across India up to 2000 metres in the Himalayas. Also pretty colours against the green of the tree and the yellow of the wall. #delhidiary #butterfliesofindia
