Dara Singh – Rustam-e-Hind – Passes Away

Dara Singh the KIng of Indian Wrestling passes away at 83. I still remember many of his movies I watched as a kid even movies where he took up roles where muscles mattered even roles like Hercules the Greek Hero. It was fun to watch a Bollywood Hercules movie back then…

As a young kid I was DieHard fan of Amitabh Bachan and once my dad came up and said “If you are so much into fights you should see the guy who brought it to inidan Movies and that is when I saw his movies first time and I did see many of his movies after that.

Though Dara Singh was a renowned Wrestler and it is said he had around 500 undefeated fights to his name. But I could not see one reference if he has been honored by the Indian government like a Padma Shri or so that they keep handing over to so many people like Rekha, Kajol and many others…

I feel Dara Singh deserves a better recognition from the Indian Government. than the Rustam-i-Hind title he has for being an undefeated champion.

If you think I am wrong.. do let me know..
