Requesting Supreme Court to Convert Warship Vikrant to permanent Maritime Museum!

The name Vikrant stands for unassailability and bravery in Sanskrit.

Vikrant, the legendary warship of Indian Navy and hero of 1971 war, is apt to be preserved as Maritime Museum. India unlike other Naval powers lacks a Aircraft Carrier based Maritime Museum which will serve as a training case study for Naval officers as also students of History and Military Science. The Museum can also serve as naval museum for general public as well as earning valuable foreign exchange for India through foreign visitors. Business houses as a part of their CSR initiative can sponsor a part of corpus fund to reduce state burden. It will be a legacy for future generations as well as for students of related studies the world over.

We appeal to the honourable Supreme Court, to consider the sentiment of citizens of India and stay the breaking down of INS Vikrant. 

Making it into a 1971 war memorial would be the best homage to the heroes of the war and the best honor Vikrant can be bestowed! 

 

विक्रांत, भारतीय नौसेनेची प्रसिद्ध युद्धनौका व १९७१ च्या भारत पाक युद्धातील पराक्रमाचे प्रतिक असून, तिचे नाविकी संग्रहालय म्हणून जतन संवर्धन होणे ही लोकाग्राहाला धरून आहे. इतर देशांप्रमाणे भारताचे स्वतःचे युद्ध नौका प्रणीत नाविकी संग्रहालय नाही, जेणेकरून नाविकी प्रशिक्षण शिवाय इतिहास व सैनिकी शास्त्र यांच्या विद्यार्थ्यांना त्याचं उपयोग होऊ शकेल.  परंतू सरकारने टी भंगारात अवघ्या ६० कोटींना विकली आहे. तरी, भारतीय जनतेची मागणी आहे की माननीय सर्वोच्च न्यायालयाने तिची मोद्तोडीवर प्रतिबंध घालून, तिचे संग्रहालयात रुपांतर करावे. उद्योग समूह तिच्या देखरेखी करिता, सामाजिक निधीतून योगदान देऊ शकतात. शिवाय, प्रवेश शुल्क आकारले जाऊन त्यातून संग्रहालयाचे जतन संवर्धन शक्य आहे.

Letter to
Chief Justice of India Hon'ble Chief Justice R. M. Lodha
INS Vikrant, India's first Aircraft Carrier, and hero of 1971 war, has great historical value.
The popular sentiment of the people of India is that, INS Vikrant should be converted into a Maritime Museum Ship. It will be highly resourceful for students of history, military science, and general public.
We request you to order a stay on the breaking of the ship.
The Maritime Museum can be self sustaining through visitor fees as well as foreign exchange from foreign visitors.
