A Team Of Six Girls In Tarini

Posted: September 17, 2018

The supplement Edex of the English daily New Indian Express, carried an article on INSV Tarini on July 30th 2018. It spoke about how a team of six girls went around the globe in 254 days.

It was an all women crew from India that circumnavigated the globe in INSV Tarini. The name was given after the famous Tara Tarini temple in Odisha. The crew had three years of training under Captain Dilip Donde, the first Indian to Circumnavigate the globe solo in 2010.

The team received Nari Shakti Puraskar 2017. The INSV Tarini was built by the Aquarius shipyard in Goa. It is about 56 feet long and has six sails. In a mission called Navika Sagar Parikarma, they braved turbulent waters to circumnavigate the globe and became the first all women crew in the world to create this record by travelling 22,000 nautical miles. To know more about the mission, reach out to the official website of the Indian Navy.

The team of Tarini taught us a lot and presents a practical example of bravery, courage, determination, team spirit, positivity and confidence. Nothing is impossible, the word itself says, ‘I’m possible!’

This is indeed a great success for all the women in the world and the moment to realise the women power. A life lesson to all the women out there to let their daughters grow, treat them well without any bias. Let them speak out loud about their career dreams. Build confidence and positivity in them. Help them to follow their passion. Strengthen them to face problems fearlessly and happily enjoy with them the taste of success.
