A purse was found by Ramu.
Both the sentences mean the same. The first one says that Ramu did something. The second sentence says that something is done. The first sentence is said to be in the Active Voice because its subject (Ramu) is active and does something. The second sentence is said to be in the Passive Voice because its subject does nothing, but passively allows something to be done to the object (purse).
