Literature, Environment, Gender and Human Rights
FSLE-India stands for the Foundation for the Study of Literature and Environment-India (nѐe ASLE-Delhi).
Since October 2011, ASLE-Delhi has been a chapter of ASLE-India. However, after a formal meeting of various scholars of Delhi University and Jawaharlal Nehru University held in April 2015 the idea to form an international organization parallel to ASLE-India came out and this was appreciated and approved by Dr. Murali Sivramakrishnan, the Founder President, ASLE-India and Chief Advisor, ASLE-Delhi. The Committee was headed by the Zonal Joint Secretary of ASLE-India, Rishikesh Kumar Singh, an Ecocritic, a researcher and counselor based in New Delhi and constituted of eleven scholars from different parts of the country. Eventually, In August 2016 ASLE-Delhi has formed its own Executive Council and appointed one Joint Secretary in each state of India (except Jammu & Kashmir, Maharashtra, Kerala, Karnataka, West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh- In these states two joint secretaries are to be appointed) to meet its various academic goals. Additionally ASLE-Delhi also appoints three to five Coordinating Officers/ Coordinators in each state to work parallelly to the Joint Secretaries and to synchronize with them in any project or assignment.
On February 06, 2017 during a seminar held at Bharati College, University of Delhi, in its first GBM (General Body Meeting), the Executive Council of ASLE-Delhi has decided to rename it as FSLE-India (Foundation for the Study of Literature and Environment-India) to fulfill its pan-Indian reception.
On November 10, 2017 FSLE-India got its International Affiliate Status by ASLE-US. This Approval provides the organization as an International Body.
FSLE-India (nѐe ASLE-Delhi) is as an open academic forum for creative interaction among intellectuals, academicians, environmental activists, naturalists, nature-lovers, and those involved and earnestly dedicated to these issues and who are receptive and undogmatic to one another’s individuality and their standpoints. It intends to amalgamate two relevant issues Gender and Human Rights with Literature and Environment primarily initiated by Rishikesh Kumar Singh what he calls it the LEGH Movement (Literature, Environment, Gender and Human Rights). This is the first venture of its kind where all the four issues are juxtaposed together. This specialty makes this movement relevant.
