Rama Mani is a housekeeper whose husband abandoned her during her 6th month of pregnancy,to get married to his relative. She was thrown out of the house along with her 3-year-old daughter. As she pulled herself together to survive for her children, she along with her widowed mother, moved to Varthur Main road and started working in the  houses. She managed to bring her children up and is also supporting her deceased sister's children

Rama mani doesn't complain. She smiles through all her troubles. Her monthly wage is Rs 8000. Her daughter Swetha, is taking a course on tailoring.Apart from the fees that Rama has to pay for the tailoring classes, she needs to give Swetha some money to travel. The 3 days she goes to class, Swetha spends around 40 Rs for travel alone.
On asking if Swetha would like a free bus pass for a month, Rama smiles and says " If Swetha gets a bus pass, she won't skip her classes due to lack of  money"
