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


Sweater weather! Bought this cape-sweater hybrid on Instagram, off one of the many "thrift stores" that have been started by enterprising young women. I'd read an article about Instagram Thrift Stores in the Indian Express and missing Sarojini Nagar and general street shopping, I went looking. Mostly it's export surplus stuff that they're selling with a "vintage" tag but some cute things like this and the price was right (599 including shipping) & I needed a new sweater so why not, eh, I thought. Of course buying something off of someone's Instagram account is a whole lot less professional than any other e-commerce experience so be prepared for that, like I wasn't. It's more green than it looks in this photo and nice and soft. Felt cute though, and it was warm and I'm not going back to Sarojini any time soon (unless it's first thing on Monday morning three months from now? We'll see.) #whatiworetoday
