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


The construction next door is depressing me, after four years of having a lovely view and peace and quiet, it's being taken away by a large builder's flat style building and I can't help resenting everyone involved including our future neighbours. But then I think at least I had this past year to actually enjoy being at home because I couldn't leave it. There's silver linings in (almost) everything if you look and I continue to be a relentless optimist. Here's some shadow puppets tonight banging and spitting away on the other side of this green screen. I'm angry but I'm helpless so I may as well let it go. #delhidiary
