The 9th International Day of Yoga commemoration will be preceded by combined maritime drills between the Kenyan and Indian navies in the coastal town of Mombasa (IDY).
From May 26 to 29, 2023, the Indian naval ship Trishul, which is on a deployment to five African nations, is anticipated to dock in Mombasa, Kenya. There, marines from the two countries will engage in a variety of professional interactions, deck visits, and sporting exchanges with the goal of fostering cooperation and understanding.
According to a news release from the high commissioner, Her Excellency Namgya Khampa, the visit to the port shows India and Kenya’s long-standing friendly relations that date back to the pre-colonial era.
According to her, as part of India’s celebrations this year, the two fleets are scheduled to take part in a yoga session at Mtongwe Naval Base on May 27, 2023, which will also be performed in many other ports across the world to form a “Ocean Ring of Yoga.” The date for the international celebration is June 21, 2023.
The second frigate of the Talwar class in the Indian Navy is named INS Trishul. On June 25, 2003, INS Trishul was commissioned into the Indian Navy, giving the Kenyan navy a once-in-a-lifetime chance to use some of the best warships.
