Kunwar Viyogi (4 September 1940 – 2015) christened as Group Captain Randhir Singh Jamwal is the first and only Indian Air Force officer to have received the prestigious Sahitya Akademi Award for his long Dogri poem titled 'Ghar'[1] in 1980. He used 'Ghar' (Home) as a peg and strung together 238 four lines verses embracing a wide variety of subjects and ideas and feelings into a long poem. He is also the youngest poet in the history of Sahitya Akademi to have been bestowed with such an honour. While literary accomplishments of Group Captain Randhir Singh are many and noteworthy, the Sahitya Akademi awardee's most unique and path breaking contribution to the language is exposing Dogri literature to the lyrical melody and disciplined form of Sonnets, a relatively new and unexplored genre for Dogri writers. Early life Kunwar Viyogi was born on 4 September 1940 in the Samba district to Poorakh Singh Jamwal, who served as an Inspector in the J&K Police Department.[2] His mother, Pushpa Devi was a home maker,
