The preposition “To” in English is ને ( ne ) in Gujarati.

So, To Ram -> રામને  ( rAmane )

To Sita ->  સીતાને (sItAne )

But preposition “To” is handled bit differently in Gujarati when used with pronouns.

Special forms are created incorporating ને ( ne ) to pronouns. So no need to add ને ( ne ) again.

e.g. “to him” in English is તેને ( tene) in Gujarati.

Notice this special form already has ને ( ne ) In it. So no need to add ને ( ne ) again.

Below table has list of forms for all pronouns.
