Must read

The 293-year-old Freemason Organisation’s meeting will host a Grand Festival 23 which will be held on November 25 and 26 at Imperial Gardens in Secunderabad. It is hosted by the Freemasons of Telangana.
It is the city’s first-ever grand festival in the 62-year history of the Grand Lodge of India. The event is also being clubbed with another landmark milestone – the Diamond Jubilee celebrations of the Supreme Grand Chapter of India.
About 1,200 plus Freemasons from across India and abroad are expected to participate in the event. Delegates from several different Grand Lodges of countries such as the United Kingdom, Scotland, Paraguay, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Russia and Mauritius are expected to participate.
Anish Kumar Sharma, Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of India and the head of Freemasonry in India said, “It is a historical moment as the Grand Festival is being held in Hyderabad for the first time in the 62-year history of the Grand Lodge of India. Grand Lodge is the apex body of Freemasons in India, which was formed in 1961. Freemasonry traces its roots in India in the early years of the 18th century. In 1730, officers of the East India Company held their meetings in Fort William in Calcutta. Hence, it is a historical moment all the Freemasons in Telangana should be proud of.”
