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

You say po-tay-to, I say po-tah-to

The mystery that is the male sex has always been fun to blog about. Like many other chick-blogs do. But I feel it's unfair not to let them (or you, if you're a male reader) present their side of things.

I could've just asked some of my guy friends for their opinions etc, but that would've taken too much time and effort. So, why not, I thought, just let a guy, a GUY'S guy, have a voice on this blog?

Keys to the blog have been given to an anonymous guest blogger, who chooses to be known as Silver Surfer, which he assures me is a comic book hero. Okay. :) And he will post here occasionally, on his thoughts and his life etc. It should be fun. I'm curious for one about the male voice.

And no, before you ask, I'm not going anywhere. My super-long posts will still be happening with regularity. This is just something that I thought, that we thought might work.

Everyone say hello to Silver Surfer! *raises a toast*


  1. wooooooaw. Where'd you pick this one up from? Sorry, SS, just curious :-) and looking forward to it!

  2. Should be fun, no? And I'm most upset that you haven't responded to my cry for a blogger meet. Hmph.
    Go SS, go! :)

  3. When Harry met Sally, eh? Loved that song in the background. So Noo Yawk.

    And hey - since when did WE become mysteries? We're just slobs. (Mostly) But w.y.s.i.w.y.g. (which is very sad for the girl-who-got-me).

    I'll have to take this blog out of the chick-lit section if you experiment so much.

    *makes note* Coffee, large. No quiche. Small dose of strychnine.


  4. ummmmm... should have left a love note when you dropped in at our place yesterday. THEN maybe I would've come :-)

  5. just LUVVED whatyu named this post. cant stop laffing. wattaview!
