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


Happy Diwali! I'm off to lunch in my old Anokhi dress. But even though this dress is old, it does denote new beginnings for me. I bought it just before I was "let quit" from a job I had, it seemed like we were both playing a game of chicken to see who would break up with whom first. The dress was on sale at Anokhi and fit me nicely: a sign! I stepped into the rest of my life neatly and with a swish of my skirts. As Edith Piaf warbled last night on our stereo, "Non, je ne regrette rien." this is a good enough time as any to remind you to embrace your life too, mistakes and all. #whatiworetoday
