Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, our first Prime Minister, has rightly said, “To be secure on Land, we must be supreme at Sea”. This famous quote always reminds us that we are primarily a Maritime Nation. And that also explains why the public holds a great deal of affection for the Navy and its officers and agniveers. Navy officers should be protected by any means as they are helping our nation through their dedication to their work. Challenges and responsibilities are the hallmarks of life at sea. These sudden tragedies make us feel sad but yet also proud of the leaders who sacrificed their lives for us.
