Now that you are here, we would also love for you to understand our rationale behind our logo and namesake acronym. The orca is considered one of the deadliest mammals, while concurrently ranking as amongst one of the most intelligent species, on the planet. Orca’s are also called ‘Pandas of the Sea’ –allowing a parallel to China’s unofficial diplomats, the giant pandas. This allows ORCA a link to China with its own identity creation in mind. Furthermore, as orcas —despite being ferocious— only defend rather than attack and are known to be great at conflict resolution, our logo’s mascot draws parallels to India’s own strategic autonomy, no-attack policy and role as a promoter of peace and the rules-based order.
