Message from the Regional Grand Master – (WI)

Dear brethren,

It gives me great pleasure to invite you to the Special Meeting of Regional Grand Lodge of Western India at Nagpur. Earlier we had planned this meeting at Gwalior in the physical format, but due to extended restrictions of Covid pandemic, uncertainty of relaxation in norms and impeding third wave, it had to be cancelled. Now that the restrictions have lifted and cases have come down, it is currently planned at Nagpur, but in the hybrid format. Covid cases have come down substantially in our region but they have not disappeared completely, hence caution has to be exercised. Therefore this meeting is planned in which limited number of brethren will attend physically while others will be able to view on online platform.

As you all are aware that the Nagpur brethren are very enthusiastic and ever willing to help and assist us in any manner which is sought from them. They have come forward very energetically to host this meeting at such a short notice. I am sure; they will achieve the high standards of hospitality and other arrangements which they themselves have earlier set.

Regional Grand Master (WI)

I feel it glad that Nagpur team keeps on transferring the responsibility on the shoulders of different brethren on different occasions. This time under the able advice of R. W. Bro. Govindlal Shahu, OSM, the team is led by R. W. Bro. Dinkar Kukday as Organizing Chairman. W. Bro. Anjan Biswas who missed the action on previous occasion due to his ill-health has volunteered to take the responsibility as the Organizing Secretary and W. Bro. Vinayak Kewadkar will be the Organizing Treasurer. All these brethren are capable and well experienced in handling the matters even at short notice. W. Bro. Mayuresh Katyayan has always been kind enough to provide with the web support and I am sure he will have a role to play in online transmission of this meeting.

M. W. Bro. Rajeev Khandelwal, OSM, M. W. the Grand Master, has been a constant support and a great source of inspiration for us. He has very kindly consented to grace the occasion even at such a short notice. We are indeed grateful to him.

Brethren, we are beginning our post second wave physical meetings with caution, I hope this will be a good beginning. Those who will be attending the meeting physically must take all due precautions and get vaccinated before reaching here. I also request all those brethren who will avoid travelling to join this meeting online. The registration for online participation is free but compulsory. I am sure you will get the details from the organizing committee.

My best wishes to the Organizing team.

With regards,


R. W. Bro. Dr. Yagnesh Thakar
