    Hockey Star Dhyan Chand

    Dhyan Chand was India's gift to the world of hockey -- he could have dribbled the moon out of the night
    Nobody dreamt that Dhyan Chand would defy the laws of gravity

    As for statistics, there are plenty. It was he who realized India's Olympic dream single-handedly, by first bringing home the gold at the Amsterdam Games in 1928, the Los Angeles Games in 1932 and the Berlin Games in 1936, where the wizard of hockey scored seven consecutive goals.

    In 1932, India scored 338 goals in 37 matches, of which 133 were from the Dhyan Chand's magic wand.
    Two things will probably encapsulate his greatness than any attempt at writing. Once an invitation to play in East Africa stipulated a condition: No Dhyan Chand, no invitation. A statue of the whiz in a Vienna sports club, it is said, shows a man with four arms and four sticks

    Hello Pankaj,
    You are right, Major Dhyan Chand was a great gift for India. He made a golden contribution to the world of hockey. He was a man with four arms and four hockey sticks. There is a hockey stadium, named after him, Major Dhyan Chand hockey stadium.
    with best regards,
    Kiran Daware.
