For his invaluable contribution to the nation , Maulana Abul Kalam Azad was posthumously awarded India highest civilian honour , Bharat Ratna in 1992.
    Maulana Abul Kalam Azad was born on november 11 , 1888 in Mecca. His forefather came from Herat (a city in Afghanistan ) in Babar days . Azad was a descendent of a lineage Muslim scholars , or Mualans . His mother was a Arab and the daughter of Sheikh Mohammed Zaher , was a Bengali Muslim of Afghan origins . Khairuddin left India during the Sepoy mutiny and proceeded to Mecca and settled there. He came back to Calcutta with his family in 1890.

    Because of his orthodox family background Azad had to pursue traditional Islamic education . He was taught at home first by his father and later by appointed by teachers who were eminent in their respective fields. Azad learned Arabic and Persian first and then philosophy , geometry , mathematics and algebra. He also learned English , world history , and politics through self study.

    Azad was a trained educated to become a clergyman . He wrote many works , reinterpreting the Holy Quran. His erudition led him to repudiate Taqliq or the tradition of conformity and accept the principle of Tajdid or innovation . He developed interest in the pan-Islamic doctrines of Jamaluddin Afghani and the Aligarh thought of Sir Syed Ahmed Khan . Imbued with the pan-Islamic spirit , he visited Afghanistan , Iraq , Egypt , Syria and Turkey . In Iraq he met Sheikh Muhammad Abduh and Saeed Pasha and the other revolutionary activists of the Arab world .

Azad found that the revolutionary activities were resticted in Bengal and Bihar . Within two years , Maulana Abul Kalam Azad , helped setup secret revolutionary centers all over North India and Bombay . During that time most of his revolutionary were anti-Muslims because they felt that the British Government was using the Muslims community against India freedom struggle .Maulana Abul Kalam Azad started Al Hilal to increase the revolutionary recruits amongst the Muslims . Al Hilal played an important role in forging Hindu Muslims unity after the bad blood created between the two communities in the aftermath of Morley – Minto reforms. Al Hilal became a revolutionist mouthpiece ventilating extremist views . The Government regarded Al Hilal as a propogator of secessionist views and banned it in 1994. Maulana Azad then started weekly called Al-Balagh with the same mission of propogating India nationalism and revolutionary ideas based on Hind-Muslim unity. In 1916, the government banned this paper too and expelled Maulana Abul Kalam Azad from Calcutta and interned him at Ranchi from where he was released after First World War in 1920.

Maulana Azad became the President of the congress in 1940 (Ramgarh) and remained in the post till 1946 . He was a staunch opponent of the partition and supported a confederation of autonomous provinces with their own constitution but common defence and economy . Partition hurt him greatly and shattered his dream of an unified nation where Hindus and Muslims can coexist and prosper together.

    Some of his quotes are:-

    happen to me.

    the top of Mount Everest or to the top of your career.

  25. 11 November 1888 – 22 February 1958) was an Indian scholar and a senior political leader of the Indian independence movement. Following India’s independence, he became the first [Minister of Education] in the Indian government. In 1992 he was posthumously awarded India’s highest civilian award, the Bharat Ratna.[1] There is also a theory which suggests that earlier when he was offered Bharat Ratna he promptly declined it saying that it should not be given to those who have been on the selection committee. He is commonly remembered as Maulana Azad; the word Maulana is an honorific meaning ‘learned man’, and he had adopted Azad (Free) as his pen name. His contribution to establishing the education foundation in India is recognised by celebrating his birthday as “National Education Day” across India.[2]

    As a young man, Azad composed poetry in Urdu language, as well as treatises on religion and philosophy. He rose to prominence through his work as a journalist, publishing works critical of the British Raj and espousing the causes of Indian nationalism. Azad became the leader of the Khilafat Movement, during which he came into close contact with the Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi. Azad became an enthusiastic supporter of Gandhi’s ideas of non-violent civil disobedience, and worked to organise the non-co-operation movement in protest of the 1919 Rowlatt Acts. Azad committed himself to Gandhi’s ideals, including promoting Swadeshi (indigenous) products and the cause of Swaraj (Self-rule) for India. In 1923, at an age of 35, he became the youngest person to serve as the President of the Indian National Congress.

    Azad was one of the main organisers of the Dharasana Satyagraha in 1931, and emerged as one of the most important national leaders of the time, prominently leading the causes of Hindu-Muslim unity as well as espousing secularism and socialism.[3] He served as Congress president from 1940 to 1945, during which the Quit India rebellion was launched. Azad was imprisoned, together with the entire Congress leadership, for three years.

  27. Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel

    Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel was born on 1875 at Karmas, a village in Kaira district in Gujarat. He was a farmer coming from a farmer’s family. At school, was a naughty and mischievous boy? In due course, he passed his matriculation examination and after some year he passed a Law examination. He practiced as a lawyer at Gadara.
    He carried on a roaring legal practice. As he was ambitious, he went to England and become a barrister at law. In 1923, he became a leader of Barolo Satyagraha. Since then, he came to be called Sardar Patel. His elder brother, Mr.Vithalbhai Patel, was the President of the Indian Legislative Assembly.
    He was a jailed several times in connection with the freedom movement. He was a right hand man of Mahatma Gandhi and his most trusted lieutenant. It was Patel who maintained discipline in the Congress ranks. In 1936, the Congress at the General Election won the majority of seats in seven provinces of British India.
    Sardar Patel, as the most important member of the Parliament Board, controlled with a firm at Congress Ministries in the seven provinces. In 1947, India was part into Pakistan and frees India. Sardar Patel became free India first deputy Prime Minister. He was in charge of the Home Department and administered law and order.
    Future historians will marvel at his organizing capacity and superhuman ability. The integration of 600 Princely States and the elimination of autocratic rule of the Maharajas and Nasals will ever stand out as his unique and greatest achievement. He did it without bloodshed and in the short span of two years.
    Was it not a miracle? To him rightly goes the credit of completely changing the map of India. Tribal raiders and Pakistani troops attacked Kashmir and tried to secure accession by force. He saw the writing on the wall. The Indian armies landed in Kashmir by air.
    The tide was stemmed, the tables were turned. The tribal raiders and Pakistani troops were made to flee. Cease-fire was proclaimed in January 1949. The police action against the Nazism of Hyderabad showed his iron will to see a thing through, no matter how insurmountable the difficulties and how great the opposition.
    He was essentially a man of action. He was India’s man of destiny. He was the steel man of India. He was the brightest luminary on the home front. He was a walking volcano with fires raging in his heart. He was not a man to be ignored or trifled with. Defeat he never knew, weakness he never felt and indiscipline he never tolerated.
    He was a pillar of fire and enthusiasm, but like a practical statesman, he was also calm and unfathomable. He never hesitated to take a decisive step. He combined quickness of decision with resourcefulness.
    He was the greatest administrator and the best statesman that India has ever produced. His death on 15th December 1950 left India poorer. By his death free India has suffered a loss in political leadership that is difficult to repair.

    SARDAR VALLABHBHAI PATEL

    GANDHI PUBLIC SCHOOL, GUNUPUR, Rayagada, ODISA
    The history of India would have been different had Sardar Patel not been the Deputy Prime Minister when India became independent in 1947. The triumvirate- Gandhiji, Nehru and Sardar Patel were responsible for giving direction to the destiny of the country. Sardar Patel consolidated the country into one united whole in a unique manner.

    Formative Years
    Born on October 31, 1875 at Nadiad, in the Kaira district of Gujarat, Vallabh Bhai Patel was the son of Zaverbhai Galabhai Patel , a Leva Patidar. This class of cultivators was known for their simple character, industrious habits and straightforward dealings. Vallabh Bhai possessed an ingenous mind as a school boy. He was a rebel whose exceptional organisational abilities were recognised by his schoolmates and teachers. Patel passed the matriculation examination from the Nadiad High School in 1897.
    Patel had two ambitions to fulfil , first to become a pleader and later a barrister. During those days a matriculate could become a lawyer by taking the pleaders examination. He became a pleader in 1900, and started practising in Godhra. In 1902 he shifted to Balsad, a taluka headquarter, where he practised as a criminal lawyer for nearly eight years, during which period he had built a name for himself as a most successful criminal lawyer. In 1910, he left for London and joined the Middle Temple, where he took an examination in Roman Law and stood first. He returned to India in 1913 and started practising as a barrister in Ahmedabad , fulfilling his second ambition.

    Gandhiji’s Disciple
    The impact of Gandhiji’s personality on Vallabhbhai was tremendous. It gave him a new mission in life. The Champaran struggle waged by Gandhiji had a sweeping effect on Patel’s mind. In Gandhiji’s Champaran victory Patel saw the beginning of a new agrarian revolution. His interest in politics had been kindled, as became abunduntly clear in the Provincial Political Conference organised by the Gujarat Sabha and presided by Gandhiji at Godhara. The conference appointed a permanent committee with Gandhiji as the President and Patel as one of the secretaries. He became a staunch follower of Gandhiji. From then on there was no looking back. Blessed with rare qualities of fortitude, integrity and an iron determination, Patel played an important role in the freedom movement.

    Indomitable Personality
    It was due to his sterling leadership and practical vision that the peasant movement in Gujarat became a success. It was in this struggle that the organisational capacity for which Sardar Patel was famous in the whole country became visible. He took over as the nascent nation’s Home Minister at a very crucial juncture in history and devoted himself whole heartedly to ensure that the country which was already partitioned, remained intact and united.

    Building a Union
    On the eve of their departure, the British government announced that its paramountcy would lapse not only over the British territory but even over the native States . This meant that as many as 625 small and big native States would become independent like India and Pakistan. Consequently, the country would be divided into a number of small and big units.
    Before embarking on this mammoth task, Sardar sought to ensure the stability of administration by forging a bridge of faith and confidence with the”Steel Frame”. Most of the I.C.S. officers suspected that the Congress leaders, particularly Sardar in view of his past experiences with them, would have no faith in the I.C.S. But Sardar rose to the occasion and reposed total trust in their capability to serve the nation. He was, thus, able to win their unstinted support in the endeavour of nation building.
    Attempts were afoot for finalising the standstill agreement with the States. It provided that the Central Government will be vested with powers of defence, foreign policy and communications even over the States.

    Vallabhbhai wanted to become a barrister. To realize this ambition he had to go to England. But he did not have the financial means to even join a college India. In those days a candidate could study in private and sit for an examination in Law. Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel borrowed books from a lawyer of his acquaintance and studied at home. Occasionally he attended courts of law and listened attentively to the arguments of lawyer. Vallabhbhai passed the Law examination with flying colours.

    Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel started his Law practice in Godhra. Soon his practice flourished. He got married to Jhaberaba. In 1904, he got a baby daughter Maniben, and in 1905 his son Dahyabhai was born. Vallabhbhai sent his elder brother Vitthalbhai, who himself was a lawyer, to England for higher studies in Law. Patel was only thirty-three years old when his wife died. He did not wish to marry again. After his brother’s return, Vallabhbhai went to England. He studied with single-minded devotion and stood first in the Barrister-at-Law Examination.

    Sardar Patel returned to India in 1913 and started his practice in Ahmedabad. Soon he became popular. At the urging of his friends, Patel contested and won elections to become the sanitation commissioner of Ahmedabad in 1917. Sardar Patel was deeply impressed by Gandhiji’s success in Champaran Satyagraha. In 1918, there was a drought in the Kheda division of Gujarat. Peasants asked for relief from the high rate of taxes but the British government refused. Gandhiji took up peasants cause but could not devote his full time in Kheda. He was looking for someone who could lead the struggle in his absence. At this point Sardar Patel volunteered to come forward and lead the struggle. He gave up his lucrative legal practice and entered public life.

    Vallabhbhai successfully led peasants revolt in Kheda and the revolt ended in 1919 when the British government agreed to suspend collection of revenue and roll back the rates. Kheda Satyagraha turned Vallabhbhai Patel into a national hero. Vallabhbhai supported Gandhi’s Non-Cooperation Movement, and as president of the Gujarat Congress, helped in organizing bonfires of British goods in Ahmedabad. He gave up his English clothes and started wearing Khadi. Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel was elected Ahmedabad’s municipal president in 1922, 1924 and 1927. During his terms, Ahmedabad was extended a major supply of electricity and underwent major education reforms. Drainage and sanitation systems were extended over all the city.

    In 1928, Bardoli Taluka in Gujarat suffered from floods and famine. In this hour of distress the British government raised the revenue taxes by thirty percent. Sardar Patel took up cudgels on behalf of the farmers and appealed to the Governor to reduce the taxes. The Governor refused and the government even announced the date of the collection of the taxes. Sardar Patel organized the farmers and told them not to pay even a single pie of tax. The government tried to repress the revolt but ultimately bowed before Vallabhbhai Patel. It was during the struggle and after the victory in Bardoli that caused intense excitement across India, that Patel was increasingly addressed by his colleagues and followers as Sardar.

    Disobedience Movement in 1930. After the signing of Gandhi-Irwin pact in 1931, Sardar Patel was released and he was elected Congress president for its 1931 session in Karachi. Upon the failure of the Round Table Conference in London, Gandhiji and Sardar Patel were arrested in January 1932 and imprisoned in the Yeravada Central Jail. During this term of imprisonment, Sardar Patel and Mahatma Gandhi grew close to one another, and the two developed a close bond of affection, trust, and frankness without reserve. Sardar Patel was finally released in July 1934.

    In August 1942, the Congress launched the Quit India Movement. The government jailed all the important leaders of the Congress, including Vallabhai Patel. All the leaders were released after three years. After achieving independence on 15th of August 1947, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru became the first Prime Minister of independent India and Sardar Patel became the Deputy Prime Minister. He was in charge of Home Affairs, Information and Broadcasting and the Ministry of States.

    There were 565 princely states in India at that time. Some of the Maharajas and Nawabs who ruled over these were sensible and patriotic. But most of them were drunk with wealth and power. They were dreaming of becoming independent rulers once the British quit India. They argued that the government of free India should treat them as equals. Some of them went to the extent of planning to send their representatives to the United Nations Organization. Patel invoked the patriotism of India’s monarchs, asking them to join in the freedom of their nation and act as responsible rulers who cared about the future of their people. He persuaded the princes of 565 states of the impossibility of independence from the Indian republic, especially in the presence of growing opposition from their subjects. With great wisdom and political foresight, he consolidated the small kingdoms. The public was with him. He tackled the Nizam of Hyderabad and the Nawab of Junagarh who initially did not want to join India. Sardar Patel’s untiring efforts towards the unity of the country brought success. He united a scattered nation without much bloodshed. Due to the achievement of this massive task, Sardar Patel got the title of ‘Iron Man’. Sardar Patel died of cardiac arrest on December 15, 1950. For his services to the nation Sardar Patel was conferred with Bharat Ratna in 1991.

  33. Essay on sardar vallavbhai patel contribution in Indian freedom in Hindi about 500 words

  34. I have participated in Mahatma Gandhi, Jayaprakash Narayan, and now in Abdul Kalam expression series but after so much time of result declaration I haven’t got any participation certificate or any news related to it on my email id. I have literally lost trust over these series . please help!

  35. On 31st October 2015 any competition is going to held or not. What is the topic to entry our name?
    Where is the form?

  36. Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel was born in 1875 at Karamsad, a village in Kaira district in Gujarat. He was a farmer coming from a farmer’s family. At school, he was a naughty and mischievous boy. In due course, he passed his matriculation examination and after some years he passed the Law examination. He practiced as a lawyer at Godhra.
    He carried on a roaring legal practice. As he was ambitious, he went to England and became a barister-at-law. In 1923, he became the leader of Bardoli Satyagraha. Since then, he came to be called Sardar Patel. His elder brother, Mr. Vithalbhai Patel, was the President of the Indian Legislative Assembly.
    He was jailed several times in connection with the freedom movement. He was the right hand man of Mahatma Gandhi and his most trusted lieutenant. It was Patel who maintained discipline in the Congress ranks. In 1936, the Congress at the General Election won the majority of seats in seven provinces of British India.
    Sardar Patel, as the most important member of the Central Parliamentary Board, controlled with a firm hand the Congress Ministries in the seven provinces. In 1947, India was partitioned into Pakistan and free India. Sardar Patel became free India’s first deputy Prime Minister, pandit Jawaharlal Nehru being the first Prime Minister. He was in charge of the Home Department and administered law and order.
    Future historians will marvel at his organizing capacity and superhuman ability. The integration of 600 Princely States and the elimination of autocratic rule of the Maharajas and Nawabs will ever stand out as his unique and greatest achievement. He did it without bloodshed and in the short span of two years.
    Was it not a miracle? To him rightly goes the credit of completely changing the map of India. Tribal raiders and Pakistani troops attacked Kashmir and tried to secure accession by force. He saw the writing on the wall. The Indian armies landed in Kashmir by air.
    The tide was stemmed, the tables were turned. The tribal raiders and Pakistani troops were made to flee. Cease-fire was proclaimed in January 1949. The police action against the Nizam of Hyderabad showed his iron will to see a thing through, no matter how insurmountable the difficulties and how great the opposition.
    He was essentially a man of action. He was India’s man of destiny. He was the steel man of India. He was the brightest luminary on the home front. He was a walking volcano with fires raging in his heart. He was not a man to be ignored or trifled with. Defeat he never knew, weakness he never felt and indiscipline he never tolerated.
    He was a pillar of fire and enthusiasm, but like a practical statesman, he was also calm and unfathomable. He never hesitated to take a decisive step. He combined quickness of decision with resourcefulness.
    He was the greatest administrator and the best statesman that India has ever produced. His death on 15th December 1950, left India poorer. By his death free India has suffered a loss in political leadership that is difficult to repair.

    Everyone becomes a star when he dies
    But only he dazzles who beautifies others’ lives
    There exist millions in the sky
    But only a few of them had courage to fly
    Bapu is one whom I am talking about
    He is the only one of whom I thought
    When we talked of nation’s peace
    And we thought of non violence.
    Every heart beat calls you, come again
    O Bapu. . . . . .
    The place you left some years before
    Which didn’t, isn’t and wouldn’t be cured
    Every heart beat calls you ,come again
    O Bapu. . . . . . .
    To bring us on the right path o apostle
    To teach us the non violence o apostle
    To fill up blank space o apostle
    Every heart beat calls you ,come again
    O Bapu. . . . . . . .
    You who altered the heart of millions
    Were like a shiny star among the trillions
    I and we need only you and you
    Every heart beat calls you, come again
    O Bapu. . . . . . .
    When you lived , we did not exist
    And when we came , you could not exist
    You blessed so many people
    And now it’s our turn to learn the morale
    Move back to teach us o Bapu
    Every heart beat calls you, come again
    O Bapu. . . . . . . . .
    Evils like corruption and violence
    Horrifies OUR NATION in your silence
    For the sake of your child O “FATHER OF OUR NATION”
    SPEAK UP , SPAEK UP, SPAEK UP again
    Every heart beat calls you, come again
    O Bapu. . . . . . . . . . .

    I, your little child,
    Offer you my salutation.
    When we think of you,
    We remember Truth and Non-violence,
    And we cherish your memories,
    With almost reverence.
    You taught us with your Charkha,
    That India will always progress,
    May you give us strength,
    And our efforts always bless.
    You gave our country freedom,
    And gave us faith and hope,
    The country of your dreams will work together,
    As if tied by a divine rope.
    You, Father of this Nation,
    Gave our country birth,
    And generation to come will hardly believe,
    That people such as you walked the Earth.

  57. First,you have to think for what topic do you want to write a poem. Then roughly set some matters in your mind regarding the topic. After that you can automatically think of matching phrases or poetic words. After thinking some time you will have some strong spirit to write it. When you took up your pen to write a poem you write it with a feeling and whether it is right or wrong/ long or short don’t be depress- that’s my tip. And if you will continue this poem writing habit it’s sure that on future you will be a poet. One thing you must remember that poets never born, they first start writing such short poems and by this continue writing they became great poets. I also write poems and my teacher and family members encourages me. You must have encouragement partner. I want to continue this habit. I somewhere becomes passion for me. Write poems with a good heart.

  68. MAHATMA GANDHI AND HIS EDUCATION PHILOSOPHY

    I strongly doubt that you could find an adult person in the modern world which will not know the name Mahatma Gandhi or just Gandhi at the very least. That being said, I am also quite positive that most of those individuals would not be able to state any of his postulates on society, governance, education or anything else for that matter. Just to clarify and establish a basis for our discourse let us point out the most important claims of Mahatma Gandhi’s social philosophy.

    We can say that Gandhi’s view of the world was in a great deal shaped by experience brought back from Africa, where he lived and worked in his early days. He became a zealous opposer of modernization as a whole, that included, of course, the British Rule. It did not mean that Indians ruling in British stead would be better – not a all! In fact, he believed that the system British created in their strive for modernity, was something rotten from its very basis. Another of his ideas was that there should be no mechanization. People did not need it in his opinion, they managed without it for thousands of years before, why wouldn’t they manage now? At the center of Gandhi’s philosophy lie two keywords – Swaraj and Swadeshi. They can be translated as independence or autonomy and self-sufficiency or self-reliance. Both perfectly desribe his idea of an autonomous and self-sufficient village which is independent from the government, it fact, it has its own rulling body of five people chosen to be the rulling assembly every year, as a basic building block of the society. Knowing all that however, we need to think how it could be applied to education.

    Gandhi was a propagator of autonomy on a village level and equality of all people living in peace. It is hardly surprising then to see that in his mindset, a school should also be able to provide for itself. At the same time it cannot be constrained by any government issued curriculum or any curriculum at all for that matter. What it needs though, are the teachers, teachers who are dedicated to their work and students, who are willing to teach by themselves by forming a special bond with the pupils. They should not only teach their students but learn from them at the same time. He did not want to get rid of school subjects however, teacher, teaching a certain subject should have freedom to teach the way they think is best. What is more, Gandhi believed that the most important subject from which the whole basic education (as he called it) should stem was productive handicraft. The reason for that being his strong conviction that a life of a craftsman or a labourer should be a good model for a decent life.

    We need to think, was that the right way? Have we done wrong by pursuing modernity? I cannot answer the first question as it is too early to say I believe and it will be the future that will become a judge of our decisions. Nonetheless, I stronlgy believe that we chose the right path and modernity is something that we cannot run from, even though it is different from the traditional way of thinking. The important bit, I think, is finding the middle ground for the new and the old. We should learn better how to embrace modernity without comromising the traditions, without hurting the poor or destroying job opportunities. We should think we can adapt the traditional art for modern needs and how to bend modern rules to fit what we believe in – also, in terms of education.

    I have no doubt in my mind that Gandhi would agree that in the world, where modernity is unavoidable, we should do our best to find a middle ground to be able to protect the culture, while taking advantage of the changes occuring across the Globe. With that reflection, I would like to finish. I really hope that it shed some light on the topic.

  81. Major Dhyan Chand – The God of Hockey

    Major Dhyan Chand was an iconic Indian hockey player who is remembered as a magician of Indian hockey. Major Dhyan Chand is a name that every Indian can say with pride. He was the prime member of Indian hockey team which brought three Olympic gold medals in field hockey. He had great control over dribbling the ball that no one could ever match. He was honored with Padma Bhushan by the governament of india in 1956 for his outstanding contribution to Indian hockey. Major Dhyan Chand’s birthday, August 29, is celebrated as National Sports Day in India. Major sports awards like Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna, Arjuna, Dronacharya awards are presented on this occasion to the sportsperson who has shown tremendous commitment towards the game and made the country proud. Dhyan Chand has scored more than 400 goals during his international career which was ended in 1948.

    Dhyan Chand was often called as ‘The Wizard’ by the legends for his magical control over the ball. In Berlin,Adolf Hitler wanted to buy his stick after watching the final match against Germany. Dhyan Chand mesmerized the Japanese by playing with a walking stick when a woman in the stands asked him to play with it. In some places, opposition team players went on to the extent to break his stick to check whether there was any special thing inside the stick as the ball always tends to kiss his stick. Overall, he scored 1000 goals in a career spanning over two decades. During his era there was nothing to record the brilliant play of this magician. If it had recorded, it could have used by this generation as a tutorial lesson. Such was the sheer intelligence he had.

    Early career
    Dhyan Chand learned to play hockey while he was in the Indian army which he joined at the age of 16. He used to practice during night times and he had to do it under moon light as there were no flood lights at that time. He was selected to play for the Indian hockey team on the tour of New Zealand in 1926 after playing for 4 years at domestic level.

    Olympic fame
    Indian hockey team made its Olympic debut in 1928 Amsterdam Olympics and went on to won the country’s first ever Olympic gold medal. Major Dhyan Chand was the top scorer of the tournament with 14 goals in just 5 matches with his brilliant piece of game plan. The team received a grand welcome from the authorities and fans. Indian team went on to win the next edition of Olympics also which was held in Los Angeles in 1932. India defeated the host, USA with a margin of 24-1 in the final match, which was a world record at that time. After that Indian hockey team had tours to Europe only to be victorious at each place that they had landed. For the next season of Olympics, Major became captain. This time games were held in Berlin in 1936. The result was same in Berlin too as India clinched the gold medal again. Dhyan Chand scored six goals in the final match against Germany in which India had won with a margin of 8-1. At that time, Indian hockey team was a dominant force in international arena.

    Career in Army
    During this period his rank showed tremendous improvement in less time as he was the super star of Indian hockey team. He was promoted to Lieutenant rank in 1937. In 1951, he was honored by the Indian National hockey by naming a hockey tournament after him as Dhyan Chand tournament. He retired from Indian army in 1956 at the age of 51. He was with the rank of ‘Major’ at the time of retirement. He had held coaching camps in Rajasthan after his retirement and later appointed as chief coach at National Institute of Patiala.

    Death
    Though having great legacy he died on 3rd December, 1979 in AIIMS, Delhi in a general ward, which is a tough fact to digest. In final days, Dhyan Chand felt sad as he was short of money and was badly ignored by the nation.Two months before he died, Dhyan Chand made a statement that shows his state of mind, “When I die, the world will cry, but India’s people will not shed a tear for me, I know them.” His autobiography “Goal” was published by Sport & Pastime, Chennai in 1952. His son, Ashok Kumar Singh was a member of indian hockey team which won the 1975 World Championship.

      The biggest wish I have for my Country                                                                                  ——————-
       
            I believe that every single one of us, no matter where we come from, wishes for the same thing for their country. I believe that patriotism is a universal value shared by every single person who loves his or her country and even though the means of achiving that vision might differ greatly, their roots are all but the same and they call for freedom and strength. 
       
             Our countries define the way we’re leaving our lives in so many ways. Laws and rules, social conditions, types of societies and many more, we are bound by them no matter if we do or don’t acknowledge the fact. The bigger the country, the more diverse the social groups, minorities and of course, the administration. This contributes to hundreds if not thousands of opinions which need to be heard in order to serve the country well. At least that is the basis of democracy and we can easily say that now, most of the civilised countries are in some way democratic. Can we say that those voices are heard though? No, we cannot… 
        
              My ideal dream country is a country where no matter how different the opinions are, people sharing them can still meet and talk and find a common ground. It is the country, where the lawkeepers do not look at me with self-righteous gazes suggesting I am guilty before I even begin to talk. It is a country where it is up to my own choice what I do, where I go, how I work, how I have fun, whom I meet with or befriend, who will share my future with me and how I want to live my life. It is a country where the goverment h
    elps free people to live well, using its power help citizens live good lives instead of trying to find guilt in them. 
      
              My ideal country is a country of freedom and justice and friendship.

    My greatest service to my motherland will be to become fully educated and

    up.To make it clean and green by planting tress and putting garbage into bins

    also wish to start free medical checkup in school and colleges and institute and” India is my motherland. Vandemataram!”

    When I grow up I want to become the “Prime minister of India”. It sound like an unlikely ambition. Politics is full of treachery , risks , corruption and all, but also it’s the only way of serving the country at best.
    Lack of proper governance has doomed India, and I swear to change it. As the prime minister I’ll work hard to change the face of India.
    My first aim will be to remove poverty. However this won’t be through simple subsidies or free food schemes, but through self help programmes, where people can stand for themselves and earn their daily by their own work.

    I want to raise India in the global forum as a super power.
    Poor children roam naked, hungry , miserable on the street. It’s my dream to see them sleep comfortably in warm shelters.
    Ministers get caught in corruption charges and scandals, one day I wish to set an example, so that no minister , no citizen of our country can even bear to think of getting corrupt.
    I want to work to make the Indian economy as the most powerful one in the world.

    I am ready to die for my country, but more than that I want to live for my country and see it rise towards glory.
