    Yes whilst I agree with you that some sections of the media have gone ballistic re their “ill informed/uneducated” comments on this issue I dont think you can ignore the fact that where there is smoke there must be a fire. I come from an army family and I can tell you the whole system of sahayaks/batmen is being abused left right and centre especially by star officers. Go to to any Command/Flagstaff house and you will see plenty of batmen serving drinks in the drawing room, serving food at the dining table , walking the dogs, watering the lawns ,tending to the vegetable gardens -there is no shortage of manpower- the abuse takes place mainly at the Flag rank, and to a lesser extent at the regt /battalion level. Yes maybe on the front line the buddy system works well and is needed but why in peace stations and esp at Command /Flagstaff houses. Mr Gokhale, please use your contacts and get an invitation to spend a night at a Command House and you will see what i am talking about. Jai Hind !
