The National Sports Day in India (also called Rashtriya Khel Divas) is celebrated on 29 August every year with a lot of enthusiasm and sportsmanship. India commemorates the birth of its greatest hockey player ever, Major Dhyanchand Singh, as National Sports Day.

The day not only works as a motivation for people but also spreads awareness about what role sports play in an individual’s life.
