    The words "It is with a mixture of sadness, pride and confidence …" is really touching. Its a product of great British design. India was priviledged to receive & operate this ship for last 25 years and for some coming few more years. After induction of vikramaditya this ship should not be retired, rather virat should be converted to a dedicated helicopter carriership, which will be enough to give nightmares to our enemies without the harriers.

    Having had the privilege of boarding and touring this fine vessel a few years ago I must say I am proud that she still protects our shores.

    On the other hand a little voice of shame creeps up whispering why we still rely on a near-60 year old grand mother rather than let her retire gracefully. Vikramaditya and New Vikraant cant arrive soon enough. Hope the MOD doesnt add more delays….

    Time to sink this ancient floating scrap bucket. India needs to get cracking on building aircraft carriers to modern warfighting requirements.
