Kanti & Lata Gala


Kanti and Lata Gala, both originally from Mumbai, India, came to the United States to pursue higher education. With a degree in Chemistry, Kanti came to the States in 1970, where he obtained his MS and PhD. Lata also came to the U.S. with a degree in Chemistry. Arriving in 1972 as a tourist, she stayed on to study Nuclear Medicine. They met each other when Kanti was a student and got married in 1975. After his post-doctoral research, Kanti joined a pharmaceutical company in New Jersey as a Research Scientist. He was soon promoted to the position of Principal Scientist, and Lata was an Administrative Director of Nuclear Medicine.

“We were always told to get a good education, then a good job, and we'd be set for life," says Kanti. "But deep down, we were living in quiet desperation. We were disillusioned with the corporate world and were not being rewarded for our hard work as per our dedication. Lack of time and lifestyle was a constant topic of discussion at the dinner table. We were definitely looking for a better way of life.”

Kanti and Lata were introduced to the business in 1985. However they did not see the big picture until 1987, when at the peak of their professional careers, they were shown the plan again by one of their family friends. After attending a major function in 1988 and meeting other professionals already successful in the business, they made a quality decision to build it. They were excited to hear BWW Diamonds talking about family values, integrity, and spiritual values they had grown up with in India.

Shivaram Kumar & Anjali


Shivaram & Anjali grew up in Mumbai, India, just a few miles apart, but they did not meet until they moved to the United States. They arrived in the US in the same year, Shivaram to pursue his Master's degree in computer engineering, and Anjali to attend her sister's wedding. Shivaram found a job as a computer consultant, and Anjali developed her career in the travel field.

"We were totally oblivious of what lay ahead - we believe it to be God's Master Plan, " says Shivaram. "Here I was, a couple of years into my career, picking up major momentum as an independent computer consultant, already in the top 5% income bracket in the U.S., and there she was, furthering her career as a travel consultant, and Manipal Reddy appeared in my life to talk about a part-time business opportunity...”Shivaram did not even see this as a business at first, he was just looking to get the health insurance offered to IBOs. Shivaram signed up, but did not do much with the business for several months. Little did he know that not only would his attitude change from mild interest, to skepticism, to curiosity, to excitement, to total commitment but his dreams would upgrade from health insurance, to supporting his family back in India, to a better living standard, to complete financial freedom.

“My little 'yes' to Manipal gave me all that! But the best gift I got is my wife Anjali." We worked hard, and within a year we went Diamond.”

Kumar sponsored Anjali's sister and brother-in-law - Ajay and Alka Ohri, now Diamonds, who in turn sponsored Anjali. "Shivaram was already an Emerald when we got married," says Anjali, "but thanks to the Britt system and the mentorship of our upline, I was able to gain momentum quickly. Within six months of getting married to him, I quit my career in travel. Six months later, Shivaram became a free man. We worked hard, and within a year we went Diamond.”
