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


After a very social weekend, this week is completely empty (so far) so indulge my third #whatiworetoday post in a row knowing that you probably won't get any more from me for a little while. Also I've been channeling creativity into clothes instead of painting or poetry, but who says how you style yourself can't be an expression of artistic aesthetic as well? Wore this to a party on Saturday, a very simple black dress, but the joy was the structure of it. I bought it at an export surplus stall in East Delhi and it's apparently athletic wear, so there's a lot of lycra panels which work to hold shit up and keep shit down and so on. My scarf turban is from Sarojini Nagar and is patterned with little brown whippets. Wore a red trench coat on top and felt like Carmen Sandiego. #littleblackdress #streetshopping
