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

Isn't the Hagia Sofia BEAUTIFUL? my photos absolutely do not do it justice but I think it's the most majestic place of worship I've ever been to (formerly in first place was the Golden Temple which is gorgeous but lacks the soaring roof, the sense of vastness.) Ir used to be a cathedral during Constantine's time, then the Ottomans turned it into a mosque, then the old secular Turkish government turned it into a museum then the new religious government turned it into a mosque so now you have to shoes off but it's so beautiful I gasped, like literally. The other photo is just seagulls, my favourite bird. I realise I have a favourite bird now. What's yours? (this is not an engagement metrics kind of question, I'm just curious.) #hagiasophia #istanbul #seagulls
