Masonic Legacy: Grand Lodge of India Turns 60

(by editorial board, Latest LY, 25th November 2021)

 

“After Independence, the Freemasonry system in India was reorganised. While some chose to remain with the Grand Lodge of the UK, other lodges came together to assume a new identity as the Grand Lodge of India. The consecration of GLI took place exactly 60 years ago on November 24, 1961,” Vishal Bakshi, Grand Secretary, GLI, told PTI.

GLI is housed in a beautiful red-brick building in New Delhi’s Janpath (Queensway during British time), the foundation stone of which was laid by then Viceroy of India Lord Willingdon on April 4, 1935.

A huge ‘square and compass’ symbol is embossed on the top of its facade, flanked by panels representing the ‘sun’ and ‘moon’, which stand for enlightenment in the Freemasonry. The GLI has four administrative units — Regional Grand Lodge of North India (RGLNI), Regional Grand Lodge of South India (RGLNI), Regional Grand Lodge of East India (RGLEI) and Regional Grand Lodge of West India (RGLWI).
