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

New week, new wildflower bouquet! Cheating slightly because I slipped some elderflower in there and technically that's off a TREE. I'm still being bucolic and pastoral and so on and so forth. I have nothing new to say from quarantine. Thank goodness for gardens but whyyyy are they so full of nasty buzzing little insects? Ugh. Always knew I was a city person but it's always when I'm someplace rural that I realise HOW MUCH. Even Goa was too village-y for me, what luck will this little village (pop. 200) have? "So what fun things are there to do around here?" I asked my father in law yesterday and he said "there's the woods" so yes, out of quarantine to go deeper into the trees. Luckily I like trees. #quarantinediary #minnaindeustchland
