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

Ugh, in the Not News, Delhi so polluted man. It has taken exactly 24 hours, maybe less, to make my nose run like an Olympic champion. In better news though, Begumpur Masjid in the early twilight is still a revelation, despite chips packets scattered everywhere, shattered beer bottles crunching under your feet and several groups of young men doing drugs in shady corners. Can the ASI get involved already? #delhidiary #historicalsoundskindalikehysterical
