Indian Military Commands Form "Tetra Group" To Counter China

  • Further strengthening operational preparedness along the China front from Arunachal Pradesh to the Indian Ocean Region, four operational commands of Indian defence forces came together to discuss steps to enhance jointness and integration amongst themselves to create a 'stronger punch' against any misadventure by the northern adversary.
  • The four commands which came together are called 'Tetra' include the Kolkata-based Eastern Army Command, Vishakhapatnam-based Eastern Navy, Shillong-based Eastern Air Force and the country's only operational tri-services Andaman and Nicobar Command based in Port Blair.
  • The move by these commands is also being seen as a strong step towards the creation of integrated theatre commands as envisaged by the Narendra Modi government around three years ago with the setting up of the Department of Military Affairs and the office of Chief of Defence Staff.
  • The heads of these commands are Lt Gen RP Kalita, Vice Admiral B Dasgupta, Air Marshal DK Patnaik and Lt Gen Ajai Singh.

  • The fourth edition of the Indian Navy-Bangladesh Navy Coordinated Patrol CORPAT was held in the Northern Bay of Bengal. Indian Navy and Bangladesh Navy units undertook joint patrolling along the International Maritime Boundary Line IMBL. The last IN-BN CORPAT was conducted in October 2020.
  • Two indigenously built IN Ships - Kora, a guided-missile corvette and Sumedha, an offshore patrol vessel participated in the exercise along with Bangladesh Navy Ships BNS Ali Haider and BNS Abu Ubaidah. In addition, Maritime Patrol Aircraft of both navies also participated in the Coordinated Patrol.
  • The regular conduct of CORPATs has strengthened mutual understanding and enhanced interoperability between both the navies in countering transnational maritime threats at sea.

Navy Locates 48-year Old Record of 1971 India-Pakistan War Victory Song

  • Over two years after the 1971 India-Pakistan war, an album on martial music was released on the Republic Day in 1974 to mark the achievement of the Indian Navy. The album named "A Salute to Our Navy" featured 14 songs, including "Vijay", commemorating the decisive victory.
  • At that time, black vinyl "LP" records existed that went out of fashion as the cassette replaced them in early 1980s. The CD soon replaced cassette as a medium of storing and playing music.
  • Five decades since the LP was released, information on its existence was almost lost, but was discovered — by chance. The herculean challenge to locate this vintage LP record spanned across various cities, antique shops, collectors, online queries and even with the copyright holding company that had released it. Finally, a copy of the record in mint condition was located in a vintage record shop situated in the recesses of Old Delhi.
  • All 14 tracks were recovered and the historical musical artifact was presented to Navy Chief Admiral R Hari Kumar. It contained both vintage LP disk of 1974 and a pen drive with the restored and digitised audio and video.
