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


I don't know, I think I'm getting pretty good at Goa mornings. Reading Elizabeth Jane Howard's The Long View and resurrecting a deck chair for balc√£o lying purposes. This morning I read an article about how old Goan homes were just that: old Goan and to call them "Portuguese" was a disservice, and I'm even more impressed with this state than I was before. Definitely the most civilised one in all of India. #traveldiary #goamoon #villagelife #nowreading
