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 know this is not a great photo of me (what is this pose? This face? And my kurta looked more flattering, I promise) but my mother took it and I was in a hurry and also she asked why I wasn't combing my hair, that eternal question asked by mothers to their curly headed children across generations. ANYHOW. I still wanted to show you my gorgeous kurta which I really just acquired to show off the dupatta which is Benarasi silk and was given to me during my cousin's wedding several years ago and which I am now wearing to the #pravi nuptials, a wedding that is filling me with joy and delight but also oof, how much I partied in these inadequate clothes, I was like a block of ice when I fell into bed several hours later. So old, so worth it. #whatiworetoday
