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

People keep saying to me "you look more and more like your mother as you age" and even though I can't usually see it, I can in this photo. In another custom made dress, my tailor actually screwed this up by swapping the design and the fabric I had intended for each but it still turned out so nice! I love the patridges. This is very thin cotton so will not be a winter dress, but loose enough to wear over a tight sweater for some extra styling. 📸 @shortpantsromance background interiors @sambhwmck #whatiworetoday #tailormade
