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

Dusshera lunch courtesy my mum who came over and brought a feast with her as well. It was tradition in Hyderabad to feast on Dusshera and then nap the rest of the afternoon, but here we've replaced the nap with a movie on Netflix. The food is from top to bottom: potato and water chestnut, mutton "vindaloo" (not really vindaloo but delicious), brown rice, potlakai Pachadi, mamsam fry and onkai koora. Ask me for translations! My belly is as round as a drum. #dusshera #feasting #delhidiary
