"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.

(What a horrible book!)

Right from the first page, right from the first word, I knew I had made a huge mistake in trusting the above reviews and by buying this joke of a book. Really, I would like to know how did this even get published in the first place. I felt like Amitabh Bachan.. and I turned on my Sherlock Holmes glasses or hats or whatever? Really? Kohli, you should have just kept on running, mate. And it is a blessed thing that you do not have a Facebook account, so we are only able to share our hatred on this comments section. Shoes were meant to run and heart was meant to fly? Really? Go Britney Spears?

If you are trying to sound deep, then you've either failed miserably or you're trying to measure & test the depth of a kid's swimming pool. Are you really trying to imitate Ruskin Bond's "Sensualist" when you put in those sex-tales? Kindly put on your shoes and run away before I sue you for putting me through this financial and mental stress/trauma.

And Oh you publishers, really?

(Awesome Book)

this is the only book that made me read it and complete it in one go bcoz i couldn't help put this book down. Fast Pace and plain lucid language made reading a breeze. The plot is great and the protaganist aka Marathon Baba is a character that one would definitely remember for a long time. I wish Girish Kohli could comeup with more of such writings in future.

(Awesome...Make a movie out of this!)

A story that's relatable, funny & cocky...I had an adrenaline-rush on each page...The characters are described so well you can actually see them as real people in front of you. This book should be turned into a movie...quickly!
