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

The Hungarian National Museum which we went to just on a whim turned out to be one of the best "history of a country" museums I've ever been to. You walk up through the Paleolithic age (Hungary is the site of a lot of archaeological digs), make your way through various invaders, get to the royal families and then end with just after the Nazis and Communism, early 80s. (when I was born so seems fitting 😁). We've definitely been taking it easy, a little tired from too much Berlin perhaps, so managing to do one thing a day, and last night spent my entire evening in bed with a book. My perfect vacation is lots to do outside but also the option to turn it off and rest whenever you feel like it. No pressure basically. #hungary #hungariannationalmuseum #budapest #traveldiaries
