My Dear Brethren,
It gives me great pleasure that the Grand Festival 2023 is being organised in Southern Region of The Grand Lodge oflndia in the vibrant city of Hyderabad on 25th and 26th November 2023. Regional Grand Lodge of Southern Region being largest Region of the Grand Lodge of India and Hyderabad being the second largest Masonic Centre of the Southern Region. I am sure this Grand Festival will be memorable event in the history of Grand Lodge of lndia.
I am sure under the overall supervision of our dynamic leadership of the Regional Grand Master, R W Bro T N Manoharan and a very capable Organising Committee headed by R W Bro P S Moorthy and all the enthusiastic brethren of city of Hyderabad will make necessary arrangements for the success of this event. This event is being actively supported by all the other three Regional Grand Masters viz R W Bro Dr Yagnesh Thakar, R W Bro Sanjiv Gandhi and R W Bro Pervez S Kaikobad. The Organising Committee is taking every care so that your stay in Hyderabad will be comfortable.
It is the second Grand Festival under my stewardship as the Grand Master of the Grand Lodge and I exhort my Dear Brethren all over the country to register and attend the Grand Festival. I am confident that Brethren will participate in Grand Festival in large numbers. Specially, I exhort all the Worshipful Masters and Secretaries to see that their Lodges are well represented in the Grand Festival 2023.
Grand Festival 2023 will provide a great opportunity to the Brethren especially those from the Southern Region, to meet each other and make friends with Brethren from all over the country. During this Festival we will also be celebrating Diamond Jubilee of Supreme Grand Chapter of India in which keynote address will be given by M E Comp Arun Chintopanth and I am thankful to ME Comp Dr PK Muthukumaraswamy, Chairman of the Diamond Jubilee Committee for making the necessary arrangements.
I am very optimistic that the Grand Festival 2023 will provide the much needed impetus to Freemasonry in the Southern Region and infuse a new sense of enthusiasm among the Brethren of the Region specially of Hyderabad and other places of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.
My best wishes to you and your families and I look forward to seeing you all in Hyderabad. MW Bro. Anish Kumar Sharma, OSM
