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

Went for a wander around the Bijay Mandal park next door and happened to walk into this criminally undersold monument. This is believed to be the palace of Mohammad Bin Tughlaq in the 14th century, part of the fourth Delhi settlement of Jahanpanah. Can't find very much about it except a subheading on Wikipedia but it's gorgeous and completely unexplored. #delhidiary

  1. This is the gorgeous Begumpur Mosque. You can climb onto the roof - some amazing sunset views. The Bijay Mandal complex, which is the palace of Mohammad Bin Tughlaq, is a few minutes walks from here.
