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


Last birthday @rosad1985 gave me two saris (a "starter" one to practise in more and a slippery green batik number she said I might like to turn into a dress.) Because I am highly suggestible, I did just that and this dress was finished in March and we all know what happened after that. However, it's that excellent between warm and cool weather time in Delhi where you can wear your sleeveless silk dresses without sweating or shivering so I wore it out last night. Found a vantage point on the stairs outside our downstairs neighbour's house that is a very flattering and nicely lit spot for a clothes selfie so I'm just going to try and take all my photos there! In my hair (finally long enough) a flower clip, around my neck, beads that @arjunbuggy and @indiaffinity sent when they got married, so I was carrying my friends around with me, quite literally. #whatiworetoday
