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

Feeling very sad that we have to leave Greece (and Europe!) in just a few short days. I've learned so much over the past two weeks, it feels like my head is bursting with information. The theme? How countries are run. From the Topography of Terrors and the Wall Panorama in berlin to the beginnings of democracy in ancient Greece, it feels like a crash course on how to run the world. This is from the sanctuary of Aphaia on Aegina island. She was running away from rapey king Minos and wound up here, where they built a temple to her. If only all women trying to escape sexual harassment were treated with the same respect. Maybe not a temple? But not calling them sluts would be a nice beginning #traveldiary #greece
