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


Very social weekend and very nice weather so I'm not all bundled up in coats and scarves and sweaters. Haven't worn this dress a lot since I bought it at a street market in East Delhi, it's a bit warm and a bit tight for the summer. (Seriously tight, two person job zipping me up this morning and I'm all constricted like Scarlett O'Hara going to the Wilkes' barbecue and dance.) But it's ideal for this time of year! #whatiworetoday
