Dhyan Chand Immortalised in Comic Book Series
Amar Chitra Katha launched Dhyan Chand Comic book series.
On the occasion of Dhyan Chand’s 108th birth anniversary, on 29 August, the hockey legend was unveiled in a new avatar as part of a comic book series by well known publisher Amar Chitra Katha.
The 64-page graphic-biography was launched by Minister of State for Human Resource Development Shashi Tharoor at the Major Dhyan Chand National stadium, New Delhi.
Business Standard quotes Mr. Tharoor as saying, “There could be no better day to celebrate the national sports day – the birthday of Dhyan Chand. He gave his heart and soul for the country. His legacy goes beyond hockey. The fact that he won three gold medals shows he was a true team man. What a patriot he was.”
Each copy of the Amar Chitra Katha’s Dhyan Chand special edition will cost Rs. 90.
