Homemaker, boutique owner and the first woman Freemason in India, Sadhana Rao talks to Indrani Rajkhowa Banerjee about her attempt to break the glass ceiling.
What kick-started your interest in Freemasonry? My journey into Freemasonry is very interesting. My husband G D Rao, a businessman became a Freemason in 2002. Till then I did not know that such an organisation even existed! When he was initiated into Masonry, I was inquisitive to know why Freemasonry in India had no place for women. Wives of members sat in the ladies room and socialised when men had their meetings and joined them only on the festive board and dinner. When my husband became the Master of a Lodge in Delhi, I started taking more interest. Along with a couple of other women, I took the lead in organising charitable projects every year.

I'm glad to read of progress with masonic lodges in India. It is highly appropriate, since the origins of the "Seven Liberal Arts" we are promised to study have origins that can be traced back to the Seven Levels of Consciousness and Yoga

The Ancient: sbs59: Were you suspended for non payment of dues? if so, square up and petition the lodge for a restatement vote. If your dues are current, your still a member. In this case, it is all about the Benjamins.
