Sea of adventure

National Geographic will premier the series “Mission Navy: Lehron Ke Sartaj” tonight at 9 p.m. It is about five civilians, which includes three women, who get to experience life in the Indian Navy. The five were chosen from 50,000 entries. Said to be the first in the history of Indian television, National Geographic Channel will showcase the hitherto uncharted world of the Indian Navy, replete with warships, submarines, missiles and much more.

The series consists of seven episodes which give an insight into the lives of the brave men who patrol and protect the country. With this initiative, Nat Geo provided the five with the unique opportunity to be a part of the Navy. These five Indians got the opportunity of a lifetime to be a part of the Indian Navy for over a month. It all started from being introduced to the academy life and undergoing basic training, to setting their first step ever on board an Indian Naval ship. At the end of the series, the most resilient, deserving and valiant of these five finalists will have the honour of sailing with the Indian Navy’s Lehron Ke Sartaj on an international tour. The decision by the Indian Navy would be based on various exercises, tests and experiences the participants went through during the month long training period.

The seven-episode series will air on Mondays at 9 p.m.
