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


Morning cat making it very hard for me to type. This photo is for Dog People who insist cats aren't loving, or sweet or affectionate. Bitches, please. You don't know the kind of Relationship of Equals affection cats give you, they tell you they love you when they WANT to, not because you command them to come closer and sit at your feet and gaze up at you adoringly. (nothing against dogs, which are a great species, but dog people can be severely narrow minded about any other kind of animal showing love.) This is Olga da Polga and she sits on my desk every morning and says hi with licks and purrs and then goes and cuddles with K every night, almost like she's distributing her love between the two of us. You wouldn't understand, it's a cat/people thing. #catsofdelhi #calicosofinstagram #olgadapolga
