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

Everybody needs a summer holiday

First off, many thanks to Hima-the-lovely for the template to attach links to my page. At the moment there are only three, but I will go on adding to the list.
Secondly, hi! to my roommate Dhati who has just returned from Leh and who I've told about my blog obsession. She's going to log on for the first time today to see what I've been upto while she's been away.
Everyone meet Dhati. She's a little crazy, yes, but then so am I and we have lovely moments of total insanity together. Then there's her 'Monica-from-Friends' side, which is not so lovely, because it's rather annoying having people clean up around you. So, I guess you could say she's sort of a borderline schizo. But we love her anyway.
Anyway, enough about Dee (get your own Blog!), on to more exciting things. I'm on holiday from Tuesday onwards (yay!) for two. whole. weeks.
So my boyfriend and I are planning to go on a little trip to the mountains, maybe do some trekking (yech) and hang around in Old Manali, a lovely little hill station up in the Himalayas (nice). So that means I won't be blogging for sometime, next week. All two of my readers please stand notified!
