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

The devil wears an old lady's Prada shoes. My in laws next door neighbour had to go into a care home so they bought a bunch of her stuff - - the plates we use for instance and these shiny Prada loafers I'm wearing in this photo with much excitement. Was going to an exhibition about Berlin's famed Tresor club and thought I'd dress up a bit. On top is a coat I bought in Sarojini Nagar for like ₹300 which I've never worn much because it was either too thin or too thick for the weather but hurrah, turns out in Europe's temperamental summer it is just right. A bit bit around the back and shoulders but that's the style these days na? Sadly those shoes were SO UNCOMFORTABLE my toes were crying by the time I got home and I had to strip to bare feet in the lift up to our floor so sadly maybe no more Prada for me. So TRAGIQUE. #berlinna #whatiworetoday #usedclothes
