Beyond the high seas: On board INS Jalashwa

Early this week, Adm DK Joshi, India’s Navy Chief was in Vizag, reviewing the operational preparedness of the Eastern Naval Command and review the fleet. During his time at sea, the Chief of Naval Staff gave a rare interview to NDTV. Rare because for 4 years the Navy top brass had refrained from interviews.

It is scheduled for telecast on Saturday, 9th November at 1130 am. To be repeated at 3 pm on Sunday 10 November on NDTV 24×7

Me and Ajmal Jami, one of our most accomplished camerapersons went onboard India’s 3rd largest ship, the INS Jalashwa, an amphibious landing ship for this interview. Some photographs from that trip on the eastern seaboard!

Will upload the full transcript of the interview here soon. Watch this space!
