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

A rare "ethnic" day though I'm not crazy about that word and how it others some clothes from the mainstream. In some eyes this is just a long top and pants, in others it's a kurta with pajamas. Either way, was feeling very attracted to chikan work since a friend came over wearing it and then serendipitously my mum gave me this kurta yesterday. Pants are old, cotton bell bottomy things from Anokhi. I like the way these look together. Fully transparent so you can see my (black) bra but I can't be bothered with a dupatta, so finicky and at least I'm WEARING a bra right? #whatiworetoday
