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


For a long time I've been wanting a little shelf near my bed to put my books and etcetera on before I go to sleep. The space between the bed and the cupboard though was too narrow for any traditional piece of furniture to fit properly. I mentioned this to K as something I'd like for my birthday and ta-dah! Here it is, a soft leather and wooden box with compartments inside for my spectacles and face cream (yes, I am old) and steady enough to balance a pile of books on because he installed it on the wall for me. Flowers also part of birthday goodies plus a ripe Camembert, my favorite sort of cake. #birthdayletters #delhidiary #presents
