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


More Rilke, this time on why you can't have free copies of my book and the perfect template for my future interactions. I sped read Letters To A Young Poet last night on a whim and also I needed some external inspiration and I'm happy to say it is as useful at 38 as it was at 18 when my mother first gave me a copy as other parents give their children with literary aspirations copies all throughout the world. #rainermariarilke #letterstoayoungpoet #nofreebies #writinglife
