Milkha Singh Biography
(Indian track and field athlete)

Milkha Singh was an Indian track and field sprinter who was the first Indian male athlete to win an individual athletics gold medal at a Commonwealth Games. Fondly called ‘The Flying Sikh’—a title bequeathed to him by the former President of Pakistan, General Ayub Khan—he is highly respected for his sporting achievements. He has made his motherland proud by winning several Gold medals in international sporting events like the Commonwealth Games and Asian Games. He had entered the 400m race at the 1960 Olympic Games as one of the favorites and had even led the race till the 200m mark before he lost his speed and other runners overtook him. Sadly, the contender for Gold couldn’t even win a Bronze! Yet even in losing he set an Indian national record for 400m. Milkha Singh’s story is one of hope and inspiration. As a teenager he witnessed the massacre of his whole family in front of his eyes. Orphaned and heart-broken he worked up his way through life, seeking solace in the running. After years of struggle he became a successful man and later on supported needy sportsmen through the Milkha Singh Charitable trust.

Childhood & Early Life :

Milkha Singh was born into a Sikh Rathore Rajput family in Punjab, in undivided India during the pre-independence days. He was one of 15 siblings, many of whom died during childhood.

The partition of Indian happened when he was still a teenager. In the violence that ensued, he witnessed the killings of his parents and several siblings before his very eyes. His father, as he lay dying told Milkha to run for his life.

Hindus and Sikhs were targeted and mercilessly killed in Punjab. Milkha Singh escaped to Delhi in 1947. Thankfully he had a married sister living there who helped him in his rehabilitation.

He was very heart broken and disillusioned after losing so many members of his family and he considered becoming a dacoit. However, one of his brothers advised him to join the army instead.

Career :

Milkha Singh tried to join the army thrice but was rejected. Finally he got selected in his fourth attempt. In 1951, he was stationed at the Electrical Mechanical Engineering Centre in Secunderabad and that’s when he was introduced to athletics.

As a young boy living in a rural place, he had the habit of running the 10 km distance to reach his school. His early habit of running helped him finish sixth in a compulsory cross-country run for new recruits. He was selected by the army for special training in athletics.

Realizing that he had potential, Milkha Singh was determined to become the best he could. He started training five hours daily, often running in difficult terrains like the hills, the sands on the bank of rivers, and against a meter gauge train. His training was sometimes so intense that he would be sick with fatigue.

Milkha Singh was chosen to represent India in the 200m and 400m races in the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games. At that time he was so raw that he could not progress beyond the initial stage. However his acquaintance with the 400m champion at the event, Charles Jenkins, gave him knowledge about proper training methods, and thus inspired him to do better next time.

Milkha Singh participated in the National Games of India in Cuttack in 1958 where he set national records for the 200m and 400m. The same year he won a gold medal in the 400m competition at the Commonwealth Games in Cardiff, making him the first male Indian to have won an individual athletics gold medal at those Games.

He won the gold medal at the 1958 Asian Games in Tokyo beating the Pakistani runner Abdul Khaliq. This prompted an invitation from Pakistan in 1960 for another race. Initially Milkha decided not to go as the burning memories of the partition were still fresh in his mind.

Jawaharlal Nehru convinced Milkha Singh to get over his past and go to Pakistan. His race against Abdul Khaliq was a much anticipated one—over 7,000 people had gathered in the stadium to watch the race. Milkha once again beat Khaliq in a nail-biting finish.

Impressed by the Indian athlete’s performance, the then President of Pakistan, General Ayub Khan, who had also witnessed the historic race complimented him by saying that he did not run, but flew. Thus Milkha gained the famous title—The Flying Sikh.

Milkha Singh participated in the 1960 Olympic Games in which he was one of the favorites. He finished fourth in the 400m final which was eventually won by the American Otis Davis. Losing at the Olympic is something that haunts the great athlete even today.

During his later career, Milkha Singh became the Director of Sports in the Punjab Ministry of Education, a post from which he retired by 1998.

Awards & Achievements :

In the year 1958 alone, Milkha Singh won many major events. He won the Gold medals in the 200m and 400m competitions at the Asian Games and Gold at the 440 yards event in Commonwealth Games.

He was given the Padma Shri, India’s fourth highest civilian award, in 1959 for his glorious achievements in the field of sports.

He won Gold medals in 400m and 4x400m relay in 1962 Asian Games.

Personal Life & Legacy :

Milkha Singh met Nirmal kaur, the captain of the Indian women’s volleyball team in 1955 and married her in 1962. The couple has three daughters and one son. His son Jeev Milkha Singh is a famous golfer.

In 1999, the couple adopted the seven year old son of a soldier who died in the Battle of Tiger Hill.

Milkha Singh donated all his medals to the nation which were first displayed at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi before being moved to a sports museum in Patiala.

He founded the Milkha Singh Charitable Trust in 2003 with the aim of helping needy sportspersons.

Milkha Singh died of post-Covid complication on 18 June 2021, at the age of 91.

Trivia :

Actor Farhan Akhtar portrayed this famous athlete in the Hindi movie, ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’.
