The Indian hockey community has been busy celebrating the birth of India’s first captain, and the first Indian to be named captain of a major league team.
India’s hockey association celebrated the birth on Wednesday, as the country marked the 100th birth anniversary of India captain Jagmohan Dalmiya.
Dalmiyah was born on March 23, 1912, and is the first non-Hindi-speaking Indian to win the Hobey Baker award, a hockey-related award given to the nation’s top players.
Dalmiaya is the only non-Indian player to have won the award since the organization’s inception in 1919.
India has only fielded one non-Canadiens player in the NHL in the last 30 years, as Ryan Nugent-Hopkins was the only Indian to ever play for the team in the league.
The Indian Hockey Association (IHA) said that Dalmiy’s birthday is celebrated in three ways.
First, it celebrates the birth and the life of Dalmi, who was also the first player to be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.
He is also India’s only Hockey Hall-of-Famer.
The celebration is also made in honour of his achievements and achievements in the hockey field.
He has won six gold medals in hockey, with two of those coming in the World Cup of Hockey in 1988.
His winning tally in the tournament is currently the second-highest in the history of the sport.
The celebrations are also celebrated in the form of a parade of the Indian national flag, as well as other national flags, which were also placed at the venue of the event.
Indian Hockey Hall Of Fame president Anil Goyal also noted that Dalmia’s birthday also marks the centenary of the birth anniversary for India’s country.
“Jagmohan was born in 1891 in Calcutta.
He was educated in a school of law in Calabar and studied at the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) in Mumbai.
His father was a lawyer who went on to become a judge in the Bombay High Court,” Goyal said.
He added that Dalmilah’s father was the father of the first Dalmiyan and the father-in-law of the late Jagdish Tyagi.
India, however, has not had a captain of the national team since 1976.
Dalmias father Jagmohinji Dalmiia died of cancer on December 17, 1979, aged 57.
He led the Indian hockey team to the World Hockey Championships in the 1990s and later became India’s captain for the next decade.
In the same time period, Dalmiashia also led the national hockey team in scoring with 15 goals in 39 games.
Dalmoji is the third-most prolific Indian hockey player in history, after Gnanendra Singh and Gautam Gambhir.
The former was a member of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and the latter served as an MP in the state of Madhya Pradesh from 2003 to 2008.
