Lotus Club, one of the oldest clubs in Kochi, has turned 79 in 2010.  Lotus Club has retained its character and individuality.

Over the years the club has remained faithful to its objective — "a club where men, women and children of all communities would have the opportunity of meeting together and cultivating mutual acquaintance and promoting good fellowship."

The club was founded in 1931 at the initiative of Lady Bristow, wife of Sir Robert Bristow, the legendary British harbour engineer who built the Kochi port. The club was initially located at Ladies' Association Hall, but was soon relocated to a plot of land on Warriam Road, which was donated by the then Cochin Government. The club celebrated its first anniversary on September 9, 1932 in the presence of the then Maharaja of Cochin.

The members in the past included several illustrious people, including top administrators, judges, artistes and writers. There have been members who have stayed faithful to the club for over 50 years. Writer Somerset Maugham was among the important international visitors to the club. --Taken from The Hindu
