    I worked at Indian Navy full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Navy has transpired a boy to a gentleman. Navy brought out the toughest leader in me to face any combative role in Operations and life. It paved path for learning learning and getting better day by day. I was honoured, previliged and proud to be the part of Indian Armed Force , my dream job. I surveyed the unknown locations on sea enjoyed the dusk and dawn onboard ship. A proud Naval Veteran. Jai Hind

    Cons

    (It's purely my view and doesn't mean to hurt someone feelings) It's a hyphenated sevice between Sailors and Officers. You always quest for the dignity of labour you deserve. You are mentally challenged to perform some roles beyond your trade (I took it sportive and moved till my retirement)The colonial type of hierarchy is still prevalent and its changing and changed a lot since my recruitment (2005 to 2020) Shano Varuna!!
