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

Was super excited to start wearing my new tailored dresses but was waiting for a slightly cooler day (and air conditioning) for this one. I'm having a bunch made so I don't have to walk around a German winter looking as blah as I will inevitably feel, I'm told, after several months of barely seeing the sun. Fun! Why am I doing this again? 😬 ANYHOO this is a poly blend cotton I think (my mum got me machine washable thick material from Hyderabad) which I used an older Anokhi dress as inspiration, shortened the skirt and added the border as stripes on the side (well OK also because we ran out of material). I love it! I'm really going to miss this guy but never mind, next time I'm back I will go forth again. Meanwhile eyeing this ugly blue silk sari I have, wondering if I should cut it up into pants and a jacket. What do you think? #whatiworetoday #tailormade
