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

The beautiful banyan tree next to my mother's apartment. Which reminds me of this guy I met once in Goa who told us he had a tree. "You have a tree?" I asked and he said, "Yes, there's this banyan tree I found and I want to make it a Thing." and sure enough, a few months later, there was a gig around the tree and burgers and cheap red wine. I miss Goa when I think of banyan trees, there were so many in the neighbourhood we briefly called home. #banyan #treesofdelhi
