For The Love Of The Navy

ParentCircle


The Indian Navy is an institution that has been around for centuries, in different forms and guises. It patrols our national waters, keeps them safe for trade and combats threats in times of conflict.

Sadly, in this day and age, few children consider serving the nation by joining the armed forces. Some may even feel that a career in the Navy isn't as lucrative as a job in the private sector. 

But making the decision to join an institution like the Indian Navy isn't really about making lots of money for oneself. As Commander P S Sreenivasan, VAM, a retired naval officer says, “What we learn here is this - My nation comes first; my fellow others come second; for me, I come last. For us, the nation and the flag is first.”

Swipe through the clips below to educate your child about the navy. He will undoubtedly discover that a career in it is well worth considering.
