Hundreds of UK-based Indians turned out to cheer as cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar welcomed an Indian naval frigate as it docked on the river Thames in London today. INS Tarkash, a state-of-the art stealth ship, is in the UK for naval exercises and to mark UK India Year of Culture 2017.

“It is a very historic moment as this is the first time an Indian stealth frigate has docked at Canary Wharf in London. We wanted Indians based in the UK to come and be part of this unique event,” said Indian deputy high commissioner to the UK, Dinesh K Patnaik, who joined Tendulkar and his wife, Anjali, for a tour of the ship.

The frigate’s arrival in London was marked by a series of Indian cultural performances, with the crowds dancing to patriotic tunes.

INS Tarkash, under the command of Captain Rituraj Sahu, set sail from Mumbai last month and will remain docked in London until next week.
