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

Just planted these a few weeks ago. Have had so much luck with my chilli plant, thought I'd try a few more edibles. Unfortunately, I've forgotten what seed went into which pot, so they're all going to be a glorious surprise. There's a bushy cucumber back there, some basil, more chilli (the big variety), some sunflowers and some coriander. Hopefully they'll be big enough to harvest by the time we return. Meanwhile, in Goa, I look forward to working in an actual garden with @madamexmeow in the lead since she knows so much more about these things than I do! We already have a chikoo tree, but will have to fight the monkeys for any fruit. Stuff tastes better if you grow it yourself. #terracegarden #delhidiary
