A nation feels protective because of three major pillars. The three pillars protect the nation from every part and fight every battle, face every possible enemy without stepping back and with a lot of bravery. These three pillars are the Army’s of Nation, Air force, military, and the Navy. They protect air, land, and water.
When they participate in the motive of keeping the nation safe they do not think about any consequences and devote their life to it and do their job full of loyalty. India is proud to have such amazing soldiers in every path, we don’t even know the dangers they face. So, the Navy keeps us safe from the coming dangers through waterways, we are not aware of the risk to guard in the Deep Blue Ocean.
The Indian Navy has fought every battle and given strong answers to their nemesis. They have always proved that the nation is safe under them and made sure that we won’t have to face difficulties from the oceanside. To honor them, India celebrates Navy day on the 4th of December. It is commemorated every year to acknowledge the accomplishments and part of the Indian Navy to the country.
