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


Miss getting dressed up for occasions but house parties are somewhere in the distant future so I've decided to make my tiny little Bubble Hangs occasions too. This dress is very old, from Sarojini Nagar (please still exist when we emerge, Sarojini!) and I'd shoved it to the back of a cupboard because I wasn't wearing it very often. The elastic round the waist has worn off but I like it better this way, very 1920s I thought! Plus the nice thing about shoving clothes to the back of your cupboard is new outfit feels when you come across them again. #whatiworetoday
