It is not spelled Ruthu but unless you're Indian, you probably don't know how to pronounce the sound. It is sort of like the th in smith. ^-^ I know because my name is Ritu and I happened to pass by this page, so don't you dare say I'm wrong!!220.127.116.11
For the record, from what I understand, North Indians say ritu while South Indians and Maharashtrians say rutu. The difference between ri- and ru- is due to variant realizations of a Sanskrit letter (ऋ), originally pronounced as a syllabic trill. The t sound here is (in most of India) an unaspirated voiceless dental plosive. (The t that English speakers usually use is aspirated and normally alveolar.) As far as I know, there are only two commonly used transliterations of this word in Roman letters: ṛtu and ritu. The first is a bit rarified and scholarly, so I'll move this article back to ritu where it belongs!
