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


As fun as it is bargain hunting, I think even more fun is going to a tailor and having your dress made out of fabric you choose in a design you choose. (which in my case is going through my closet, finding flattering dresses and having them copied.)(one of the joys of living in this country where work like this is still plentiful and in every local market) I chanced upon my local tailor quite by accident, I was walking by and on an impulse, I stopped and asked if he would copy a dress for me, and he did a good job and so we have a working relationship. Sometimes I have to nag him a thousand times, other times he delivers right on deadline. This batch was three dresses, and I'm hard pressed to pick a favorite but I think the cranes on a soft cotton silk have it. #whatiworetoday
