When was FSF India started, and what led up to its inception?

FSF India was inaugurated by Richard Stallman at Thiruvananthapuram,
in a Conference called Freedom First on July 20, 2001. This came about
because several people took keen interest in the new operating system
called 'Linux' and in the type-setting programme called LaTeX. As they
got to know more about the ideological and ethical aspects of the
software, many of them were attracted to it and thought about starting
a Free Software Foundation of India. A movement called Freedevelopers,
which eventually died out, also helped in drawing many people to the
ideology of Free Software.
