  3. I too adore all three of them. Had seen Dara Singh wrestle live in Kolkata. My Tauji was a sports addict, had heard so many stories of Hockey from him. I must add that Roop Singh the younger brother of Major Dhyanchand did not get as much fame but he was equally good. Mostly it was their team work that got converted to goals.
    Had seen Milkha Singh’s dream run in Olympics in documentaries that were played just before the movies.
    Nice to see a blog on these three great sportsmen.

    1. True… I just love him in every way, his simplicity is the thing which atleast I didn’t find in any other actor except Waheeda Rahman Ji (though I’ll accept that I watch less movies but still) and especially I watch Ramayana because of two people’s perfect acting Him as Hanumana and Mr Arun as Rama 😊
      Thank you so much for the reflection and blessings Sir
      😊🙏🙏
