They had quite forgotten him.
All this time no one had remembered Ravi.
Having disappeared from the scene, he had disappeared from their minds.
These are the three sentences that suggest that the children had completely forgotten about Ravi. In these sentences, we learn that the children had been playing a game, most likely "hide and seek." Ravi had hidden. However, no one had found him, and eventually they all forgot about him. It is clear that this caused Ravi great pain.
