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

See ya Budapest! (see ya also being the Hungarian word for hello and goodbye, spelt differently of course.) we are now off to Turkey for two weeks after which I will return to the Motherland so let me make the most of the last winter I'll have for the season. From yesterday's walkabout, coffee and a sandwich in an ancient coffee hall, ferris wheels against the sky and a walk across the bridge to the Buda side of the city. Ending with (not pictured) a nightcap at the city's most famous ruin bar (ie a bar in an abandoned building but in this case turned legit) where every night we saw long crowds of tourists queueing to get in and got around that by going in at 7.30 pm like old boring people. At least we saw the inside! It was cool. #budapest #hungary #traveldiaries
