Maiden Voy­age

India Today - - UPFRONT -

South Block’s new­est high-pri­or­ity mis­sion is the Sagar Parikrama cir­cum­nav­i­ga­tion at­tempt by six In­dian Navy lady of­fi­cers on an In­dian-built

yacht, the INSV Tarini. Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi held a video con­fer­ence with the crew on Di­wali and, along with de­fence min­is­ter Nir­mala Sithara­man, is keenly fol­low­ing the Tarini’s voy­age. Navy brass say they have to pro­vide daily up­dates to both on the crew’s progress and even get re­minders when they for­get.
