Cauvery Madhavan arrived in Sligo, Ireland from India on Valentine’s Day 33 years ago. Since then she’s lived in Dunboyne, Limerick before settling in Kildare, in a house right beside Rachel. Her latest book ‘The Tainted’ is set in India in the 1920s and takes a fictionalised view of an actual mutiny that took place by the Connaught Rangers. She joins Rachel and Tony for a crossover episode with The Echo Chamber to discuss her latest book as well as Indian politics and how her community in Straffan, Co Kildare became her family.
