September 2, 2022 was a historic day in the Indian Navy’s history as Prime Minister Narendra Damodardas Modi commissioned India’s first indigenous aircraft carrier INS Vikrant at the Cochin Shipyard in Kochi.
“INS Vikrant is a floating airfield, a floating town and the power generated in it can light up 5,000 houses, while the cables can run to Kashi from Kochi. INS Vikrant will also use the power of our Nari Shakti. The way there is no limitation to the sea, there will be no restrictions for our women too,” Modi said.
