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


Trying to do this thing where I don't buy new clothes and instead wear everything in my cupboard. (tailor doesn't count as fast fashion no?) this dress is SO OLD, I think I bought it in Sarojini about 10 or 15 years ago? (smug that it still fits) I think it might have been white which got stained so I dyed it black? It was at the bottom of some random clothes basket, covered in cat hair, doomed to be forgotten until I threw it out or something but I rescued it and washed it and look, with some jewellery and red lipstick, it looks almost new. Plus v flattering fit. #whatiworetoday
