Celebrating Universal Brotherhood

An article caught my eye from the Pune (India) Newsline

Pune, June 25: FREEMASONS in the city celebrated universal brotherhood day on Sunday.

The brotherhood believes in secularism and their motto is to study the mysteries of science and nature. There are as many as 10 million Freemasons around the globe. In Pune there are nine lodges with two temples and a membership of around 250.

The first Freemason Lodge in India was formed in Kolkata in 1735. It spread to Mumbai and then to other parts of India. Currently there are 352 lodges under the Grand Lodge of India. Notable Indian Freemasons include Swami Vivekananda, Motilal Nehru, JRD Tata, Rajendra Prasad and S Radhakrishnan.
