Dhyanchand was called the magician of hockey stick. ...
Major Dhyan Chand Singh (August 29, 1905 December 3, 1979) was a former Indian hockey player. He was part of the Gold winning Indian team in three Olympic Games (1928 Amsterdam , 1932 Los Angeles, 1936 Berlin). He was awarded the Padma Bhushan[citation needed], India's third highest civilian honour, in 1956. He got the title "Chand" or (moon) from his first coach, Pankaj Gupta, who had predicted that he would one day shine like a chand or moon. Even today Dhyan Chand is the only Indian sports person who can lay claim to be the unchallenged master of a sport.
