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


This Masaba shirt dress is one of the first designer pieces I ever owned so you can understand how I was super reluctant to part with it even though it doesn't fit me any longer. (Shirt dresses are my bĂȘte noire, they never last me more than one or two years, the buttons already straining almost as soon as I buy them.) But then I thought, "You know this would be cool as one of those cloth jacket slip dress combos" and I was OFF, rummaging through my cupboard for this Athleta black dress (off the streets of East Delhi, lycra with panels). This is why I love dressing up, so many creative choices! This is why I love spring! Teamed with a necklace my mum bought me from Chile and my trusty boots which I had made (!) from a cobbler in Nizamuddin West market who charged me 2500 for them nine years ago and they've never had a single crack or tear or broken zipper or loose sole despite me using them HARD over the last decade. Don't you love when things you love last and last? #whatiworetoday
