This is the INS Viraat undergoing routine refit and maintenance in the repair dock at the CSL, Kochi. Had the pleasure of bumping into her CO, Captain Anil Chawla at Kochi. The carrier is undergoing a general maintenance routine -- cleaning up her engines, hydraulics and giving the fresh metal plating on the hull a once over. She'll be back in the water in a few months.
