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


I'd forgotten how much I like this dress that I bought at a second hand sale once. I put it on today and was so delighted, I plan to promptly have it reproduced with some fun Indian fabric. Featuring POCKETS and a peekaboo crossback you can't see, but will have to take my word for it. Sweaty glow, model's own from stubbornness about not turning on the AC till it's "really hot." (today might be that day because already my temples are starting to pound.) #whatiworetoday
