Global Federation for Nepali Literature (GFNL)

Introduction

Realizing the dire need to develop, preserve and promote Nepal literature internationally, 47 writers from 18 countries of the world founded the Global Federation for Nepali Literature (GFNL) on 13 July, 2010 on the occasion of the birth anniversary of aadikavi—the first poet—Bhanubhakta Acharya.

The Federation, founded with vows for commonality, transparency, mutual coexistence and solidarity, have now 18 units, scattered in 12 nations of the world—Saudi Arabia, Russia, USA, Britain, Malaysia, Spain, Nepal, UAE, Belgium, Israel and Canada. Exercises to extend the units to other nations of the world are going on.

In many nations, organizations of various levels are in operation for the promotion of literature. Feeling that more than independent and discreet efforts, a global network extending over all the seven continents of the world would be more fruitful, this initiative has been taken. Since the Federation is evolving to be a joint forum for all literary organizations and lovers of Nepali literature, organizations with independent existences too can become its members and be a part of its global endeavors. Half a dozen literary organizations have become its members till date, and the trend has been increasing each day.

Though we speak different dialects and use different scripts, Nepali is our lingua-franca. This language binds us in a web of unity. Literature written in any dialect or script, with pains, sorrows, happiness, experiences and feelings of a Nepali fall under the canopy of Nepali literature, and so, its expanse is obviously quite large and comprehensive. We all are rightful share-holders of such a literary firmament, and we bear the responsibility to enrich it. Since it is a federation by name, it incorporates all, and so, its jurisdiction is global.

As its memorandum empowers it to extend its membership to every country, town, village, street, group, community, university, college and even school, it is fast developing into the biggest network of Nepali literary stake-holders. The Federation considers that with the pervasive expanse of technology, the world has shrunk into a village. It maintains a cordial and balanced relation with every other language, script and literature. In order to correct the misreporting and informational slips in write-ups and information about Nepal and Nepalese, furnished by foreign writers in their works and books disbursed through any means, the Federation has constituted “Task Force for Correcting Information about Nepal”. In order to extend its reach to cultures and literatures of other languages, the Federation has remained quite alert. It has always been committed to the promotion of Nepali literature and Nepal’s esteem in the world, and has remained honestly active for the cause.

Only a few days ago, “Global open audio poem competition 2068” had been organized, and it was the first of its kind in the history of Nepali literature. Around 200 participants, from 19 countries, and 27 districts of Nepal took part in it. At present, the Federation is extending its reach to many other literary organizations, and is endeavoring to publish unique and qualitative works of literature.
