  1. I am a Arjun Awardee of 1976 for the Indian Sport of Kho-Kho.
    I am surprised that On many sites including this, the list of Kho-Kho players Which is around 20 to 25 starting from 1971 onwards is missing.
    Please investigate and inform me accordingly.

    • Hello Shekhar Sir!
      First of all, thanks a lot for bringing this to our notice. The list is generally compiled on websites from wiki page and unfortunately it did not have it. But based on your message, we explored the web and found out exact details from government website, which is again unfortunately not showing the latest updates. Still, it has complete details of Kho Kho Awardees. We have updated the details now.
      Thanks again for your big help in keeping the information correct and updated.
      If possible, do let us know if you would like to share some information about Kho Kho with us. If you can, it would be great if someone like you can write on Kho Kho and we can publish for Kho Kho lovers of our country.
      Thanks,

    • Nice to know you Manoj. We feel proud to know the grandson of such a great Indian sportsperson. Now as you have requested, we will try our best to write an article with complete detail about Bhim Singh.

  5. In kabaddi 1st Arjuna Award received 1972. But u r published only after 1998. Can u publish the full list.

    • As per the official record the first Arjuna Award for Kabaddi was conferred in 1994. In 1972, among the 11 recipients of Arjuna Awards, none belonged to Kabaddi. If you have any official link, please share, we will update.

      Thanks for your comment.

    This person is not a Athlete or Badminton Player. He used all the Duplicate certificates to get the award. If you go throw the certificates you will come to know that.

    Plse verify/enquire all his athletic and Badminton certificates.

    • Thanks for sharing the details. But we are only posting the official list of awardees. We would be glad to remove the name if the charge is officially proved, and the award is taken back.
