* 2 feared dead in Sindhuratna mishap

He is the first Navy Chief to quit the job. The only other time a Navy Chief left mid-tenure was when Admiral Vishnu Bhagwat was sacked on December 30, 1998, by the BJP-led NDA government for defying government orders.

Joshi, an anti-sub warfare expert 
New Delhi, February 26
Around 1970, when Admiral DK Joshi -- then a young 16-year old -- was keen on joining the National Defence Academy (NDA), Khadakvasla, Pune, his mother Hansa Joshi expressed apprehension on her son joining the forces due to the �risk factor�.
Today, more than 34 years later, her fears may seem prophetic as an unforeseen risk had led to her son quitting the post of the Chief of the Indian Navy -- the fourth largest navy in the world.

New Delhi, February 26

Close to mid-day, Chief of Naval Staff Admiral DK Joshi, armed with a letter of resignation, walked down the South Block corridor into the office of the Defence Minister AK Antony.
