Hitchhiker is the story of Ebenezer, the son of untouchable Hindus who converted to Christianity. The not-so-religious Ebenezer is on the fence, totally focussed on doing well in the extremely competitive entrance exams to engineering colleges. Joining the Global Evangelical Church has not altered Ebenezer?s family?s status in their ancestral village, where they are still treated as untouchables.
Ebenezer plods his way through an unfair world, where not all software engineers do well and where dotcoms go bust and where religion, caste and educational background play an overwhelming role. The one bright spark in his life is Gayathri, the daughter of a rich right-wing Hindu nationalist businessman. Gayathri?s family does not want her to marry Ebenezer and try to wean her away. It is an unequal fight between the powerful business family and Ebenezer, one which Ebenezer eventually loses, despite a last-minute conversion to Hinduism. However, Ebenezer refuses to part with his soul any more.
