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


Good morning from my first day in our new Goa home! (new to US. I think this house is easily 100 years old.) The first thing I see when I open my eyes is my favourite part of the house: the incredibly high ceilings with two glass tiles to let the sunshine through. Outside I can hear birdsong and traffic (we're right on a main road but thankfully the bedrooms are to the back of the house.) As soon as I got in at two am yesterday, felt all my stresses falling away. Why don't I remember that Delhi me and Goa me are two such different people? #goanway #oldhomes
