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 want to do a lot more painting in 2020 (but for fun. I need something to do that I love that doesn't make me think of money. A hobby.) I got acrylic paints as part of a birthday present and have really been enjoying working with them, especially mixing colours and how bright everything stays, even after it dries. My friend had a birthday yesterday so I painted him a picture of his favourite animal: the dog; and chose a Mary Oliver poem (who I am currently reading) as the text. It looks recognisably doggy, don't you think? #painting #dogstagram #maryoliver
