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


Felt very enterprising taking the metro yesterday to a Diwali party in Gurgaon. The weather was pleasant enough for us to walk to and from the metro station. (with pollution masks on sadly) you can't see my whole dress but it's made from a sari pallu and some red raw silk that falls just below my knees in a full skirt. It may not be cold enough for silk though, I was quite warm in my outfit. But I'm pleased with how the dress looks, had it made last year and only ever wore it once. #delhidiary #metro #whatiworetoday
