Rama first came to the attention of the G.I. Joe team after Operation Khukri in 2000. As a member of the Indian ParaCommandos, he and his men dropped into Sierra Leone and overtook their objectives with minimal casualties. He is proficient in numerous small arms and anti-tank weapons, but is most deadly weilding his M-4 or RPG-7. He is also deadly unarmed as a he is a master of both Gatka and Krav Maga martial arts disciplines.
He rescued and adopted a young elephant who he named Ganesh during a raid on an Arbco Bros. Circus which was in fact a front for Cobra. His teammates joke about the day that the elephant is big enough for Rama to ride him over the Alps.
"Rama is like Jekyll and Hyde. Back at base he is a big teddy bear, but get him on the battlefield, or get between him and Ganesh, and he liable to rip your arms out of their sockets and beat you to death with them."

This is now my 5th custom. I had bought an extra Chief Guard on ebay, and was going to use his head as some sort of villain. Unfortunately it was way to large for the figures I wanted to use it on. Plan B was to meld it with a Joe figure, and I found a tutorial on how to combine the 2 styles of bodies. Rather than make him a villain, I decided that diversity was in order, and that what would be more diversified than a Sikh soldier. A little research and viola, Rama was born. I thought he looked lonely, so I bought the elephant as his sidekick and decked him out with gear as well. This one was probably the hardest one I have done so far with trying to get all the pieces to fit together.
