The Indian Navy has played a pivotal role over the years in ensuring the country’s vast coastline is safe and secure. India’s maritime force has time and again thwarted nefarious attempts and it is this valor that is saluted each year on December 4 as Navy Day.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday took to Twitter to wish Indian Navy on the occasion. “Navy Day greetings to all valorous personnel of the Indian Navy and their families. India is grateful to our Navy for protecting the nation and the commendable role the Navy plays during disaster relief,” he tweeted.
Chiefs of Indian Navy, Army, and Air Force paid homage at the Amar Jawan Jyoti earlier in the day as a mark of respect to Bravehearts who sacrificed their lives in the service of India. “Your Navy is formidable and stands combat-ready and operationally-prepared always,” said Navy chief Admiral Sunil Lanba. “To serve, protect and defend. Sam no Varunah. Jai Hind.”
While this and other such operations during the 1971 war showcased the capabilities of the Indian Navy, the force continues to be a ginormous threat to enemies – including pirates, while being a pivotal ally to friendly forces and a guardian angel for merchant vessels on high seas.4 December, 4th December, Indian Navy, Indian Navy Day, Indian Navy Day Celebration, Karan Arora, Karan Arora Chandigarh, Karan Arora Mohali, Karan Arora Punjab, Karan Arora SAS Nagar, Modi, Navy, Navy Day, Navy Day News, Navy News, News Updates, PM Modi, Salute to Indian Navy, Today's News
