The plot centers around Karna, who finds everyday life hard to deal with. So, he runs. He runs to understand life, he runs away from life, he runs and keeps on running. Karna runs for seven long years through the country. At one point, he suddenly turns red, for no apparent reason. He then decides to set up an Ashram, and calls it the Marathon Ashram. The novel relates Karna?s story from his young days, living with his quarrelling parents in a fictional city. Later in life, he is dumped by his girlfriend. He also finds his IT job unbearable. So, at the age of 23, he runs away from his life, leaving everything behind. He runs through several fictional cities, keeping himself alive by eating at temples and other places of worship. On his journey, he makes an acquaintance with a rock-star dope peddler name Bawa. On being released from jail, Bawa changes his name to Java and joins Karna. Karna, after turning inexplicably red, is now setting up an Ashram. The Marathon Ashram promises to give refuge to people who are runaways. It attracts several disciples like the beautiful Karishma, whom Karna calls Ma. Another disciple is a superstar who turns the spotlight on the Ashram and Karna is soon referred to as Marathon Baba. A pair of shoes that Karna found during his legendary run play an important role in the story. Witty, irreverent and wacky, Marathon Baba is fast paced and focuses on the absurdities of life.

Inhaltsangabe: My marathon starts from the finish line,' said Marathon Baba. He runs through his country for seven long years until he miraculously turns red and builds Marathon Ashram. Hundreds of runaways descend on the Ashram and become its residents. 'It's not about the pace, it's about the peace,' said Marathon Baba. Thirty-three Deadly Disciples find their peace in the freedom of the Ashram and devote themselves to their Red Guru.
'For the Ashram to live, Marathon Baba must die,' say the Deadly Disciples.
He was warned. Running is injurious to health. Witty, wacky and weedy, Marathon Baba is a wondrous tale about the cult of a man who couldn't stop running.
