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


Betcha didn't think you'd see a #whatiworetoday lockdown edition eh? WELL never say never. As a writer, I work from home normally anyway and my usual uniform has been day pajamas and then night pajamas. But in the good old days when we could go OUTSIDE *sobs* at least I would have a chance to wear some of my nice things a couple of times a week on social occasions. Day pajamas to week pajamas was toooo depressing so I started to dress "like an actual human leaving the house" a few weeks ago. This has mostly skewed towards slutty tank tops and loose pants but today I rummaged and found this which I last took to Goa for a long vacation and so put at the top of my closet to "forget about" till it felt new again. It's one of my original tailor dresses, fabric I bought specially from Jaipur with a contrast panel at the waist. It also zips up with a sash so this is the most constricted my body's felt in WEEKS. I feel pretty though! Plus not all wasted, I have a Zoom book club this evening and my husband thinks I look hot so win win. My smile is a little manic because I have forgotten how to take an outfit photograph. #coronavirusdiaries #alldressedupandnowheretogo
