Ramu is the son of Lily Aunty and Bakul Uncle, brother of Anamika, and cousin to Uma. Rebellious and adventurous, Ramu is the "black sheep" of the family. Spending his youth traveling on the seas and throughout the country, Ramu disappears for long periods of time. Uma loves Ramu, ignoring her parents' disapproval of his attitude and ways. When he visits Uma's family, he behaves irreverently and with entitlement, bringing Uma along to dine at the Carlton Hotel in the city. Sweet and doting with Uma, he flirts and laughs with her, and encourages her to be herself. Yet, his character and allegiance are not consistent, as in his youth, he followed MamaPapa's bidding in bringing Uma back from the ashram against her will.
