Hyderabad, May 20: Freemasons of Telangana on Sunday in a late-night function presented a cheque of Rs 50,000/-(fifty thousand rupees) to the family of Bokka Padma and Narasimha Reddy, whose two children Bokka Teja Vardhan, 20 years old and Bokka Mani Vardhan, 17 years of Yamnapet Village in Ghatkesar have been suffering from incurable Muscular Dystrophy for many years.

Further, the Assistant Regional Grandmasters of Freemasons in Telangana Proddaturu Veerabhadrudu, Dr. Srirang Abkari, Anil Desai, and Ramesh Manchala, who graced the Mother’s Day Celebrations assured the family of the continuous monthly financial as well as material (groceries as per the need) support as long as the children live.

Freemasons is a global organization. It is a morale-building organization. It makes good men better, said Proddaturu Veerabhadrudu.

Last week, we visited the family at Yamnapet Village, studied their situation, assessed their need, and appealed to Freemasons, their families, friends, relatives, business associates, philanthropic individuals, and good samaritans, through their contributions, the money was raised.

A cheque was presented to Mrs. Bokka Padma, the woman who has been nurturing two sons along with her husband Mr Narsimha Reddy for the past many years. Mrs. Padma was also honored for her determination to raise the children just by doing some errand jobs with both her sons suffering from such an incurable disease. She is an incredible mother, informed D. Ramchandram, a Freemason, who also emceed the function.

Both the boys have been suffering from muscular dystrophy, a rare genetic disease that weakens muscle function. Because of this, they lost the ability to walk, sit right, and stand up. They are just bedridden. Neither there is a treatment nor a cure. They need 24-hour assistance.

Padma’s husband, Mr Narasimha Reddy, a driver, lost his job. He stays at home to take care of the kids.

Padma goes to work and earns Rs 8000/- which is insufficient for the family to take care of the children and run home. Though they get an Asara pension, that is said to be not sufficient.

Padma wants to keep her both children happy as long as they live. So, Freemasons of Telangana came forward and handed over a cheque at a function held at Goshamahal Baradari Masonic Building at Goshamahal during Mother’s Day celebrations.

Along with Padma, three other incredible women who were behind their children’s success were too honored. Among them was Dr. Satya Bhama, mother of well-known cricketer VVS Lakshman. The two other incredible mothers who were also honored were Mrs. Vimya Dhurvesh Aheer and Mrs. Boyapati Subhashini.

Freemasons of Telangana also honored the mothers of their members. Some members shared their bonding with their mothers, memories, inspiring lessons learned and the mothers’ sacrifices, informed Gannarapu Ashok, another Freemason member.

Mothers Day was celebrated across South India in over 126 cities in response to the call given by its Regional Grand Master TN Manoharan. This was the first time Freemasons organized Mother’s Day. Freemasons have been celebrating only Universal Brotherhood Day so far.

Mother is a unique person in all our lives. So is Freemasonry, a very unique organization. Mother nurtures her children to be better human beings. So is Freemasonry. It makes good men better the role of a mother is to Love unconditionally; care both physically and emotionally, correct discipline and train, encourage and teach, and connect to learn and grow them. The same is the case with Freemasonry. Freemasonry teaches. Freemasonry Teaches Kindness in the home, Love for one another, Courtesy in society, Resistance towards evil, Help for the weak, Pity and concern for the unfortunate, Forgiveness for the penitent, Fairness in work, Honesty in business, and above all, Reverence and Love for God. Freemasonry is a Way of Life. It teaches values and makes good men better. Lodge (the club) is like school, college, teaches something useful to mankind, said D. Ramchandram in his opening remarks.

Freemasons also gave away prizes to the winners of the Essay Writing and Painting Competitions they organized on the theme ‘Motherhood’ to celebrate and mark Mother’s Day.

Over 100 members, their families, and guests participated in the celebrations.
