New Delhi: Major Dhyan Chand is remembered as the greatest hockey player ever. Unfortunately, if you want to read about him, watch videos of him playing or see his pictures, there isn't much available on the internet.

All this is bound to change soon though as the life of Major Dhyan Chand is now part of a comic book. A book titled Dhyan Chand - The Wizard of Hockey, was launched on Thursday in the capital to mark his 108th birth anniversary.

Speaking to NDTV, the editor of Amar Chitra Katha, Reena Puri said, "The idea is to create role models for the country. Dhyan Chand was the 1st name that came up on the list. We hope that by telling his story we can inspire the current generation."
