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 don't normally share food photos on my feed because as lovely as my cooking has become (ahem. At least WE like it so that's something) it's just not very photogenic. But look how beautiful this karela salad is. I let the vegetable ripen on the vine, which is why it has those bright red seeds. My second time making it, since K also likes it, this time I tweaked the recipe: added a little green pepper, and chopped onions and chillis to karela sliced thin in a dressing of vinegar (out of lemons but those are ideal) salt, ginger and a pinch of brown sugar. It's now sitting in the fridge for an hour so the flavours absorb. So good and so green and crunchy! The bitterness fades in the dressing completely. #coronavirusdiaries #homecooking #karela #eatwhatyougrow #terracegarden
