Character of Binya or Binyadevi in The Blue Umbrella by Ruskin Bond is bold, kind hearted and compassionate. She is fair, physically strong and healthy. This is seen when she takes care of her cows, climb trees and work in field for food. Though, she seems lost in her own world when taking care of cows, she doesn't hit them. She is also not afraid of darkness and forest. She earns for freedom.
She isn't greedy as she bought an umbrella instead of a tiger claw gold pendant. She was kind hearted to allow children to hold her umbrella and gave it to tea seller so that people start coming back to his shop. Thus, she was kind, strong, compassionate and self sufficient.
