    Three brilliant hockey players of India-a quiz

    (i) I was considered one of the greatest hockey players of India. I won two Olympic golds for the country. I was the first Indian sportman to win Helms Trophy. I was severely depressed after India's dismal performance in 1976 Olympics. I died in 1978 from an injury caused by a bullet of my own gun. Do you recall me?

    (ii) I was considered the best full-back of the world during the seventies. I was the penalty-corner specialist of Indian hockey team. I was a member of World Hockey XI in 1973 and 1974. I died in a road accident in my native state of Punjab. Do you remember me?

    (iii) Most probably you have heard about my father, one of the greatest hockey players of the country. I followed my illustrous father. I started playing for India only at an age of 18. But I died in a bike accident in Calcutta at an age of 19. Try to recall my name without searching Google.

    I have received no answer even after 18 hours! Members may try without consulting Google.

    Partha,

    There could be 2 reasons for no response to this quiz:
    (i) We cannot answer without consulting Google as we are not having GK about the hockey players you are referring to.

    (ii) You posted a thread about monotonous threads - well, you had already posted a similar quiz just a few days ago, so repeating the same type brings monotony due to disinterest in attempting the same type of quiz again in such a short time. You should pace the activities you post in such a manner (only once a month, for example) so as to maintain the interest of the members.

    Keep smiling...one day life will get tired of upsetting you.

    #588373: If we can answer questions on Mahi's hair style or Yuvraj's wife, then why can't we remember KD Singh Babu or Surjit Singh Randhawa, who are very famous in world hockey? Yes, I admit that third one was really difficult and I know about Robert Claudius because he was from Calcutta. But his father Leslie Claudius was another greatest.
