Indian Navy Day celebrations
Today we showcase the skills of Indian Navy soldiers, as they practice ahead of the Navy Day celebrations. The Indian Navy Day is observed every year in India on December 4. It marks the day of a major victory of the Indian Navy over Pakistani vessels. The day is commemorated by various gatherings and exhibitions across the country, at naval bases such as Chennai and Vishakpatnam, and Mumbai.
