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

Wobbly legged after my latest experiment with fitness. As you all know: I hate exercise. Any form of it. I don't like being tired and sweaty and frankly, lack the motivation to get up off my ass and work it. As you also know: I'm getting to the age where you can't just depend on metabolism and good genes to keep you in the shape to which you are accustomed. Walking is the least painful of all exercise forms for me and I'm combining it with watching television, which is a nice distraction. And because I hate commitment, this is a rented machine, mine for the month which means it'll never turn into a clothes horse like at home treadmills always do. I'm watching The Mindy Project here by the way and it's mindless TV that's going to get me through this month. #forcedtobefit #stupidsocietalstandardsforhealthandbeauty #yogaisboring
