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

I was tremendously excited about meeting Saif Ali Khan today when he was interviewing for Parineeta, because I've had a crush on him since I think Hum Saath Saath Hain which I saw a really late show of in Varanasi or Benares, whichever you're more used to, but his stupid dad just had to surrender today so my grand seduction plan failed.
Okay. That. That was a lot harder than it looked. Phew. I don't think this whole less is more thing works for me. You're talking to someone who's never been on a diet. On the other hand, you're also talking to someone who believes in minimalism for her clothes. So...
Oh well. Feedback on new template? Isn't it purty?
