The South African Navy festival took place in the town of Simsonstown from the 16th of March to the 18th of March this year. Joining the celebrations was the Indian Navy's Hydrographic survey Ship, the INS Darshak. The vessel has been designed & built within the country at the Goa Shipyard Limited. Perhaps, it was in the neighbourhood, performing surveys for countries like Seychelles & Maldives & other adjoining countries, as stipulated in bi-lateral agreements signed. A Naval version of dropping by your friend's place for a few minutes to say hello, when you're in his neighbourhood on some other business, perhaps.
These are some pictures of the ship, when it arrived in South Africa for the event.
