Anand Mahindra, the chairperson of Mahindra and Mahindra Group, took to social media to express gratitude on Navy Day. In a post on X on Monday, he shared a video of the Indian Navy, remembering "one of the most energising memories from" his childhood.

"One of the most energising memories from my childhood is a visit on board our first aircraft carrier, INS Vikrant. I remember a strong feeling of being safe & protected. Our Navy still makes me feel that way. On Navy Day, I bow low with gratitude," Anand Mahindra tweeted.
