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

Deep in the caverns of Noida is Indira Market, a warren of stalls selling export surplus kurtas, crockery, random things for the house as well as an outing for people who live next door. It's also home to several fabric shops, and a favourite of my mum's friend who lives next door and told her all about it. I also wanted to go so we made a date and there like Aladdin's cave, vast quantities of fabric piled up to the ceiling and me deciding what I needed to get made over the next few weeks. Shorts definitely. Co-ords. A shift dress. A tank top. Shopping for fabric is in many ways more fun than regular shopping because it exercises your creative brain but obvs there's delayed gratification and you have to wait and see if the tailor can pull off your ambitions. Also bought some ₹100 t-shirts for days like yesterday, going to local markets and exploring new things. #fabricshopping #tailormade #diyclothes #handloom #exportsurplus #indiramarket #noida
