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

Disclaimer t-shirt dress is technically what I wore YESTERDAY but then the hashtag wouldn't fit so I'm going for consistency over honesty. Our first outing since we got back from the hills, we were ready for bed by 11 pm. #whatiworetoday

  1. Hi, I love the decor of your house and the way you've done it up! Where can I find blinds/curtains in Delhi like the kind in this picture?

  2. We bought the fabric and had them custom made, alas. :/
