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


Lady Olga da Polga (of the Russian da Polgas, one of the oldest and best families) was never too busy to attend to her toilette after a long day. This day had been particularly long, she had to fend off the advances of the visiting Sir Moonface who occasionally stood outside her door, begging for admittance, she had to tend to the cottagers around her estate as her mother had before her and she had to have her grooming in order before the upcoming Season. It was no wonder that by the end of the evening, she preferred to be alone, to undress and bathe in private, while contemplating the heavy tasks that lay ahead of her. #regencycats #olgadapolga #catsofinstagram
