Dhyan Chand is famous as the “Hockey Wizard” all over the world. Decades back, Dhyan Chand was one of world’s top sportsmen- in league with the great Don Bradman, Jesse Owens, and Babe Ruth. Major Dhyan Chand, a hockey genius, was part of the gold winning Indian team in three Olympic Games. He was awarded Padma Bhushan, India’s third highest civilian honour in 1956. He got the title “Chand” or “Moon” from his first coach Punkaj Gupta, who seeing his exceptional skills, had predicted that one day he would shine like the moon. Dhyan Chand was born on August 29, 1905. Dhyan Chand joined the Indian Army at the tender age of 16 as a sepoy. Subedar - Major Bhole Tiwari, himself a good hockey player, recognized the talent in Dhyan and became his mentor. Dhyan’s incredible control of the ball left the spectators awestruck. Once in Tokyo, the officials broke his hockey stick to check if Dhyan had a magnet hidden inside the stick. While playing in Germany, he received a standing ovation from Adolf Hitler, who even offered him a high place in the German Army if he accepted German citizenship. This hockey genius said goodbye to International Hockey in 1948.
