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


For my birthday this year, I got some money of which I spent some on this, the most beautiful handbag I've ever had from @chiaroscurobags. It's MONOGRAMMED. It's heavy in a luxurious way. What else can I say about this bag? It gives me hope that I'll leave my house soon, go places where I'll need a nice bag, a nice bag that has my name on it and holds all my important things. It was made to order as the brand does so the tag had the name of the artisan who made it (thank you, Mr Irfan!) and it's upcycled leather from the meat industry so no new animals were killed for my fashion. I feel so fancy even in my ski pants and old sweater. #whatiworetoday #handbag
