Sindhi Sahitya Academy Awards

sahitya_akademiAfter the partition, in multilingual country India, this was a long struggle to get recognition for Sindhi language as here Sindhis were fighting for resettlement of life and that too in isolated and dispersed population. Thanks to efforts taken by Sindhi Sahitya Mandal one of the pioneer literary body of Sindhis in India, Sindhi language was taken in consideration as the recognized language for the program on All India Radio & Sindhi literature for the Sahitya Academy Award highest literary award of the country in the year 1957. This might be noted that Sindhi language was included to eight schedule of Indian constitution on 10 August 1967 as the fifteenth language. 

Tirth Basant was the first to receive this award only in 1959 for the biography of Bhagat Kanwarram another significant thing about this award is that between 1960 - 1963 and in the years 1965, 1967, 1975, 1977 and 1992 no one was honored with this prestigious award.
