Vizag Navy Day Celebrations : Every year, the Indian Navy marks December 4 as Navy Day to commemorate the victory of the country’s armed forces in the Indo-Pakistani war of 1971 and pay tribute to the heroes of the battle. A boat with naval commandos display their operations during Navy Day celebrations at RK Beach in Visakhapatnam on December 4, 2017.
To commemorate the Navy Day on December 4, every year, the Eastern Naval Command (ENC) showcases the Indian Navy’s operational capabilities and activities that the navy undertakes on the high seas with an Operational Demonstration at RK Beach on Monday.
The Navy Day operation demonstration gives an opportunity for the public to have a closer glimpse at the multi-furious activities of the Navy and the challenges that naval personnel experience at sea. The chief guest for the Navy day operational demonstration at RK Beach will be Ganta Srinivas Rao, AP Minister for HRD.
December 4 is celebrated as the Navy day every year because on this day during the India-Pakistan war of 1971, the Navy’s Missile boats carried out devastating attacks on Karachi harbour.
Navy day activities will begin with paying homage to the service personnel who have made the supreme sacrifice by laying their lives during the 1971 war. A wreath will be laid at the war memorial at the RK Beach. This will be followed by the operational display in the evening which will demonstrate the capabilities and versatility of the Navy’s ships, aircraft and Special Forces.
These elements of the navy will act in unison, to show how the navy defends our country’s maritime borders, deters the adversaries, and even can influence operations on the land. The ceremony will also exhibit the navy’s elite band, which has performed across the country. The event will be attended by the Military and Civil dignitaries of Visakhapatnam. Every year, the operational demonstration is witnessed by thousands of people including children.
