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


Back when I used to blog and @kritisingh used to blog, we met in real life and realised we knew everything about each other. All the failed romances, all the favourite bars. I visited her occasionally around the world: Singapore, Hong Kong and every now and then she comes to Delhi and every now and then we have drinks on a muggy evening. No longer Jaeger bombs (which she introduced me to one crazy Singaporean evening and which I will never drink again, urk) but even in our sedate 30s, we're cool. Even offline, we're cool. It's nice to meet old friends after a long time. There should be a long foreign word for when you have both comfort and novelty. #delhidiary
