An Indian Navy Float and a short skit prepared by Naval Aircraft Yard (Goa) under the aegis of Goa Naval Area were paraded during the “Goa Carnival 2023” at Vasco-da- Gama on 20 Feb 2023.
A tableau “Indian Navy – Combat Ready, Credible, Cohesive and Future Ready” exhibited a self-propelled model of the first indigenously built aircraft carrier INS Vikrant, which was commissioned on 02 Sep 22. The salient features of the mighty aircraft carrier and models of indigenous aircraft like LCA Tejas, ALH and TEDBF were showcased on the float. A skit depicting ‘Atmanirbhar” approach of the armed forces was also performed by naval personnel during the parade. The tableau proved to be a source of inspiration for the youth of Goa to be a part of the nation building process and in turn motivate them to join the Indian Navy.
