New Delhi, January 22
The Indian Navy’s Republic Day tableau will showcase the naval strike at Karachi and the role of the aircraft carrier INS Vikrant on the eastern seafront during the 1971 India-Pakistan war.
The theme of the parade is “Indian Navy Combat Ready, Credible and Cohesive” and comes at time when the country is commemorating the golden jubilee of the victory in the 1971 war.
The Indian Navy proved its mettle as a credible force to reckon in the 1971 war proving its combat efficiency and hence this year’s tableau aims to showcase that. — TNS
