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

Weird mask store (sadly closed by the time we passed it but did we want to go in anyway?) Trying to do a bunch of museums this month, we both have a Museum Pass that lets you in to 18 museums for free and this week I'm planning a few treats for myself (K will join if he has time). Photo of him at the Hamburger Bahnhof, a Prussian era railway station now turned into a contemporary art museum. Some shit was just boxes on the floor and call it art, some was cool though, like all the video installations they have from the 80s. After that K said "are you OK to wander?" and I said yes, little knowing he was going to make me walk SEVEN KILOMETRES. My legs were wobbly when I got out of bed this morning. #berlinna #hamburgerbahnhof #masks #urbanjaunts
