Agree.I'm in no way dissing the army, they do unparalleled service to us and that shouldn't be forgotten. If any of u go thru my other posts I have always defended them to the core. Yes, many jiahdis and urban naxals file fake cases of rapes and murder against jawans and officers in conflict zones. Such cases should discouraged at all cost and be called out.
But at the same time, injustices done in name of "tradition" within the army, against jawans or spouses(both jawans and officers), shouldn't be tolerated. Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it.
sahayak was supposed to be for officers, not officer's wives. the system has been misused.It's helpful for the officers, in more ways than you are probably thinking

So you are saying having the caste based regiments is bad?you may or may not want to read these -
In this explainer, News18 dissects the emergence and role of the caste factor in the Indian Army and how it continues to be an integral part of the system, even though it is a relic of the colonial past.www.news18.comPraveen Swami caught the wrong end of a long stick in his article >“Ladakh troop revolt underlines Army class tensions” ( The Hindu, May 13, 2012). His interesting analysis of the indisciplinewww.thehindu.comAfter we got freedom at midnight, we still had George VI holding the title of Emperor of India for more than ten months.

iam sure there are many more..
The sahayak is mostly an older aged man, In a battalion this is considered one of the plump assignment areas and people volunteer for it.sahayak was supposed to be for officers, not officer's wives. the system has been misused.
if they want domestic help, let them create a separate non-military cadre with it's own pay structure.
this misuse is not just in army, it's there in almost all govt branches.
ex: Home guards in police, attenders in judiciary etc etc.
i am making a distinction between officer's sahayak and officer's wive's sahayak.The sahayak is mostly an older aged man, In a battalion this is considered one of the plump assignment areas and people volunteer for it.
The sahayak's work mostly revolves around getting the laundry washed and ironed and some other related household work nothing else.
I don't see anything wrong in it. If a person who has so many responsibilities as an officer who's hardly home, he needs help obviously.
keeping a man of the battalion close to him will also get him any important info if he needs it about his own men.
