It is a matter of pride that hockey magician Major Dhyan Chand was born in Prayagraj, but which locality is the birthplace, it is not clear even today. This is the reason that the city of Sangam could not even preserve the memory of the world famous hockey player. In Prayagraj, mainly the names of two localities remain in the discussion regarding his birthplace. First Mohalla Muthiganj and second Old Cantt.
Major Dhyan Chand was born on 29 August 1905 in Prayagraj. His father Sameshwar Dutt Singh was a clerk in the army. About six-seven years after the birth of Major Dhyan Chand, his father was transferred to Jhansi. After that he went to Jhansi. Along with his education and initiation, most of the time of the game was spent in Jhansi. For this reason, nothing is clear about the place of birth of Major Dhyan Chand. Many hockey players belonging to his family are also not clear about the place of birth.
