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

Another! (only two to go and they are cold weather things: a kimono style shrug made with orange and saffron brocade and a satin ajrak dress, so you won't see either of them on on this trip.) I'm particularly pleased with how this turned out because it isn't a copy or a picture, it's something I sort of designed myself. Well, only sort of. Took inspo as the kids say from a strappy low cut brocade cocktail dress from the 60s and added puffed sleeves that roll up and button. Puffed sleeves are everywhere right now by the way, and of course, I keep thinking of Anne of Green Gables. Also raised the neckline slightly and made the back square. I'm serving Sandra from Bandra going to Sunday mass. All in all, delighted. I'll think of Delhi and this rainy September whenever I wear them next. #whatiworetoday #tailormade
