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


Turns out we are staying slap bang in the middle of the Pahargunj of Saigon. Blasty music from all these bars competing with each other, loads of white people looking out into the streets and massages offered by everyone, from aunties who looked legit to girls in short shorts who did not. That little cart is one of the many dried fish stalls that walks up and down the streets, the lady fries it with other things and there were enough locals to eat it also. We went all the way to the end away from the noise and to a restaurant with only locals (except us) because we are old and we are looking for Authentic Experiences etc. #saigongirl #hochiminna #canthardlyviet #traveldiary
