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'm posting about frivolous things like this dress I had made out of a sari. I'm not done being angry and raging, but I am pausing for a second. I want to also have some joy because otherwise I will go (and this is not hyperbole) slightly mad. I don't know. I wanted to show you my dress, I had it made year before last, but could never find an occasion fancy enough for it, and then it stopped being silk season. And then I wore it to @pragyatiwari's bachelorette party and so the seal was broken off it and last night I was asked for a fancy fashion show and silk season is nearly over again so I wore it even though I might have been a tad overdressed. It's like a ball gown and behind all that silk my heart goes "inqilab zindabad" over and over again. #whatiworetoday
