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


Today's outfit is definitely one I'd call experimental, but that's what going to your friend's house is for, to try on outfit combinations you've wondered about before. (it's a lot like writing, you lie in bed and you think "Hmmm that t-shirt i stole from K would go very well on top of my tutu skirt" and then you pull it on next time you're going out and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, but still fun) Anyhow, got this pinafore dress in my #sarojininagarhaul and at first I thought I'd shorten the straps but it didn't look that nice with shorter straps so I loosened it again and added a kalamkari sari blouse. So definitely kinda bizarre, but I like it so it stays. #whatiworetoday #styleexperiments #streetshopping
