National Sports Day – Time to make it Big
August 29th is celebrated as National Sports Day to commemorate Dhyan Chand , one of India’s
erstwhile hockey players. This Indian hockey legend redefined the sport for the country with his
outstanding talent, and brilliant achievements. The aim of National Sports Day is to spread awareness
about sports to every corner of the country and also enlighten people on the various opportunities in
terms of international competitions and so on.

The world typically does not associate India as a nation to sports naturally. While India may be one of
the super powers in Cricket and Hockey (in past), there isn’t much to talk about in other sporting
disciplines. And, hence this notion!
Dhyan Chand is one the all time greatest hockey players and it was not for nothing that he was nick
named ‘The Wizard’. He mesmerized the world during his playing days with his superb ball control and
goal scoring ability. Not surprisingly, Indian hockey was at its pinnacle during the times when Dhyan
Chand was at helm. It is unfortunate that Indian hockey is no more a super power in current times.
The recent success and popularity of non cricketing sports like Badminton, Tennis, Wrestling, Archery
and a few more is an encouraging sign. Today, we see lot more kids and young players getting seriously
involved in these sports as well. Sporting properties like IPL, IBL, I-League have also successfully
positioned sports as not just recreation but also as lucrative career option.
Understandably, the time when India will shine in Olympics and other multi-national multi-sports events
is a little far away. But, we are at least taking the steps in the right direction!
Let us join together and celebrate National Sports Day like any other significant day for the nation and
truly transform India into a sporting nation.
