Indian Navy is making big news these days as it participates in the
multi-nation war games exercise off the coast of south India. While
the exercise itself has given rise to protests and heated
discussions, what it has highlighted, and quite effectively too, is
that the Indian Navy is sophisticated enough to conduct exercises
with the navies of highly developed countries like the US,
Australia, Japan and Singapore. It is this high level of expertise and skills that makes a career in this service a challenging one. A service which is responsible for defending our 7,000-km-long coastline in times of war and peace, the Indian Navy plays not only an important defence role but also that of international policeman of our maritime boundaries, safeguarding Indiaís maritime interests such as offshore oil and gas installations, coastal shipping and fishery rights, and vital trade links.
