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

This tree grew wild, a weed in a pot that I didn't uproot because I like trees even when they're weeds. Except when they're waging war with our roof when sadly I'll have to have them removed. But these trees are origins unknown, ficus. The leaves are a lot like the fancy fiddlehead figs people pay a lot of money for. Testing hardness by making them indoor plants, the trees that rose from some bird years ago shitting a seed and it landing in this pot. I hope it grows taller! I've wanted a large indoor tree for some time. #houseplant #ficus #weedsareastateofmind
