Mr. Sundersingh Ramchand Bhavnani was born on 6th August 1916 at Hyderabad. He comes from a famous Hyderabadi Amil family, being the nephew of Dewan Dialmal Doulatram, M.L.A. and grandson of late Dewan Dayaram Gidornal. He received early education in Jammu State, Karachi and Debra Dun. He had his share of Military training too. Mr. Bhavnani from his early days had a passion for a world tour. It was in 1936 when he was not even 20 years old that he left his home to realise the dream of his youth for travel to foreign countries. Ceylon, Singapore, Philippines, Hong Kong, China, French Indo China, Shanghai and Japan he visited. It was Japan which fascinated this Sindhi youth, who has brains for business. He started his business in 1936 in Japan and had severe reverses. In 1938 he married a Japanese Lady hailing from a most respected and talented family. Through his Japanese friends he was introduced to the most influential and important firm of Japan and he took their Agencies. His heavy Machine Oil Agency was the turning point in his luck. He started his Pearl, Jewellery and Industrial Diamond business which paid him well. No Indian had such an access to famous and influential Japanese firm's as Mr. Bhavnani had. He is one of the very few Indians who can read and write Japanese Language. Before the outbreak of War with Japan, Mr. Bhavnani returned to India. He: started the must novel and up-to-date Night Club in Karachi, "La Casa Manana".

Unfortunately Mr. Bhavnani is compelled to lead a quiet life because of War. But his hidden powers one day are bound to play an important part.
