Dhyan Chand The hockey legend, was born on 29th August 1905 in Allahabad.He was the senior sibling of another hockey player Roop Singh. His folks are Sharadha Singh and father Sameshwar Singh. His dad was in the British Indian Army, and he played hockey in the armed force. Dhyan Chand had two siblings – Mool Singh and Roop Singh.Because of his dad's various armed force exchanges, the family needed to move to various urban areas and thusly Chand needed to end his instruction after just six long stretches of tutoring. The family at long last settled in Jhansi, Uttar Pradesh, India. Dhyanchand got training from Victoria College, Gwalior in 1932. Being in the military, his dad got a little land parcel for a house. 

Youthful Chand had no genuine tendency towards sports, however he adored wrestling. He expressed that he didn't recall whether he played any hockey worth specifying before he joined the Army, however he said that he once in a while enjoyed easygoing recreations in Jhansi with his companions. 

Chand joined the Indian Army at 16 years old. The Hindi word Chand actually implies the moon. Since Dhyan Singh used to hone a great deal amid the night after his obligation hours, he used to sit tight for the moon to turn out with the goal that the perceivability in the field (amid his time there were no surge lights) moved forward. He was thus called "Chand", by his kindred players, as his training sessions around evening time perpetually matched with the leaving the moon.
