The Indian Navy Day is celebrated every year on 4th of December. It is observed with the purpose of celebrating the magnificent achievements of the Indian Navy, as well as celebrating the immensely-important role played in maintaining peace for the country on the maritime front.
The Indian Navy plays a major role in making sure that our marine borders are properly safeguarded. It also improves India’s foreign relations by way of seaport visits, humanitarian missions, joint defence exercises, calamity relief programmes, and the like. Navy Day is also celebrated in order to commemorate the daredevil attack, known as ‘Operation Trident’, which the Indian Navy pulled off at the Pakistani naval base in Karachi during the Indo-Pak War on December 4, 1971.
