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


Kitten delivery! Our housekeeper's cat had four babies before she was killed by dogs ☹️ and Najma couldn't raise the babies on her own because like all infants, they need regular round the clock feedings. Tapped into my Delhi cat network which is amazing, by the way, and we were sent to a home with a lactating mother cat. Her kittens are slightly older, see the escape artist in this photo who just wants to play, but we rubbed the kittens against each other and put them in with her and soon she was grooming them like they were her own. You can see one tiny ginger one at the back, the other two are in the general kitten pile. With luck, they'll survive and go to happy homes of their own. #catsofdelhi #kittens
