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 got to thinking yesterday about this #whatiworetoday thing that I do. For all you lovely people who post encouragement and compliments, there must be people who hate follow me or think it's weird for a person to just post pictures of their clothes when that person isn't a Fashion Influencer or whatever. And then I thought ehhh who can be bothered with what other people think. There'll always be a voice in my head telling me that something I'm doing is offering someone else fodder to mock or deride (one out of office message I wrote when I was still in an office got forwarded by one of the recipients around the office, so amused was she by my earnest delight in being away.) Fuck it, let's be ourselves. But also sadly this is the LAST Sarojini dress and now we'll have to go back to my old clothes again. #sarojininagarhaul #streetshopping
