Indian Navy Participates in Goa Carnival

The Indian Navy participated in the Goa Carnival at Vasco da Gama on 28 February, displaying a float (tableau), presenting a short skit, and putting up a scintillating band performance.

The tableau depicted the amphibious transport dock ship, INS Jalashwa, taking part in ‘Operation Samudra Setu’ which was conducted by the Navy to bring relief, succour and medical aid to numerous Indians residing in India and other nations in the region when COVID-19 was declared a serious global pandemic.

The Indian Navy’s contribution in supporting the Government of India’s regional outreach – in the form of repatriating Indian citizens, transporting medical oxygen and delivering 170 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines to friendly nations under the ‘Vaccine Maitri’ initiative – was the highlight of the display. The award of President’s Colour to Naval Aviation was also portrayed.

The float also reflected the theme of Navy Week 2021: ‘Indian Navy – Combat Ready, Credible and Cohesive’.
