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


Since I wasn't getting to wear Indian festive wear at all this year, I took matters into my own hands and turned a casual Just Us dinner at a friend's into a dress up occasion. Particularly love the pants, brocade churidars which are part of a velvet kurta set I wore to my friend's wedding last year. I loved them so much then I thought to myself that I should use them to mix and match with other outfit choices later. OK so it's not ENTIRELY Indian festive, especially with my peplum top (old faithful from Sarojini Nagar market) but it's MY kind of Indian clothes anyway. A little of this and a little of that. Meanwhile pants are SO TIGHT (which is very sexy but I can't sit back on a sofa or climb stairs without completely splaying my knees and waddling up them--less sexy then.) (I've decided lifts are corona hotboxes so I take the stairs even if there is a lift option.) (Sadly if I gain even an extra half inch of weight on my thighs it's going to be bye bye pants so let's enjoy them while they last.) #whatiworetoday
