India begins to flex its naval power as competition with China grows
Briefly

India is shifting its focus from land borders to naval power as its global ambitions expand. It has been participating in international maritime security by conducting anti-piracy patrols and deploying ships to protect trade routes. This signals India's desire to assume a wider responsibility and establish itself as a global player. It also serves as a message to China about India's growing maritime ambitions and its capability as a naval power. India's naval deployments have been aimed at protecting ships from attacks by Yemen-based Houthi rebels and Iran-backed positions in the Red Sea.
We are not doing it only out of altruism. Unless you are a maritime power you can never aspire to be a global power.
India's naval deployments, including anti-piracy missions and assistance to ships attacked by Houthi rebels, highlight the country's proactive contribution to international maritime stability. The Indian Navy has positioned itself as a capable and responsible resident naval power in the region. This is seen as a symbolic message to China, showcasing India's ability to deploy a large force in its own backyard. India is actively publicizing these deployments to demonstrate its desire to assume a wider responsibility in maritime security and establish its growing maritime ambitions.
It is a message to China that, look, we can deploy such a large force here. This is our backyard.
