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

Not quite a sari pact, but I see all my timelines fill with pictures of people in saris. Since I practically never wear one, only trying on one today because I was with my mum who helped, here is a picture to document it. This used to belong to my grandmother, who passed it on to my mother, who has passed it on to me, so I'm the third generation to wear it, but definitely the first to try a backless blouse to go with. It's a cotton Gadwal from Andhra Pradesh, if that means anything to you, so it's nice and light for a spring wedding lunch. #ootd #sari
