Message from the Regional Grand Master – (WI)

Dear brethren,

It is indeed a great pleasure that brethren of Kolhapur, especially from Lodge Karveer no. 469 have taken the responsibility to host the forthcoming Annual Investiture meeting of Regional Grand Lodge of Western India on 26th and 27th February 2022.

This is a relatively new lodge and it gives immense pleasure and satisfaction that the brethren of new lodge are so much enthusiastic and motivated.

I am certain that they will leave no stone unturned to make the stay of all the delegates memorable.

I am also sure that they will be ably supported by the other lodges of Kolhapur, Miraj and Pune.

Kolhapur is a beautiful city in western Maharashtra amongst Sahayadri mountain ranges situated on the banks of river Panchganga.

It has historical importance. It is very famous for Mahalaxmi temple.

It is also equally well known for its culinary delights. Kolhapuri chappals are also very well sought. Plus there are many tourist spots around the city which includes the Panhala fort. This could be the trekkers’ delight too.

I exhort all the brethren to plan their last weekend of February 2022 at Kolhapur and along with the annual meeting they can enjoy their short holiday as well as wonderful hospitality of our brethren from Kolhapur.

My best wishes to the organizing team.

With regards,


R. W. Bro. Dr. Yagnesh Thakar
