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


My new shoes are here from Paaduks just in time for our holiday next week! These are made from old truck tires, insanely comfortable and pretty cheap too. The ones on the right are completely waterproof, which may be of interest to my Goa friends and you know my very strong love of Kalamkari fabric. Hat tip to @manasisubramaniam who bought the first pair and then told us all about it. #whatiworetoday
