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


I already Instagram storied one of these guavas yesterday, but since we're going out of town we picked a whole bushel to carry with us. That's right. We PICKED them. Off our very own guava tree in our very own terrace garden. This is like next level balcony gardening and it's all down to Ram Lal, our excellent and devoted gardener (Seriously, he might love our garden more than I do.) I just swan around like the Countess of Downton Abbey and approve his purchases or plan things of my own and ask him to execute them. The garden is more expensive than the rest of our household, but it's totally worth it, especially at times like these. Wait till next summer when our mango sapling starts to fruit as well. I never thought I'd be THIS into a garden, but it's amazing to be surrounded by green growing things. #terracegarden #eatwhatyougrow #guavatree
