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


I bought these slouchy pants on sale (marked down from 3000 to 567) so that is my big achievement in this photo. Paired here with an embroidered sari blouse worn back to front and a fanny pack I bought ages ago on Amazon. (No link unfortunately, this was ages ago, but pants are off Anscetry.) Excuse the mess behind me, trying to channel Goa chic without actually being in Goa. #whatiworetoday
