Did you know that there exists a system of ‘reservation’ for promotion in the officers' cadre in the Indian Army?

What if I tell you that merit is compromised for petty regimental gains and national security is being diluted by denying promotion to competent army officers?

For the first time, A Soldier Speaks not only for himself but he speaks to ensure the safety of our borders and for improving the existing promotion structure of the Indian Army.

The nation must know what transpires in the olive green part of the prestigious South Block, behind closed doors! Does politicization of the Indian Army help national security or is it counter-productive and diluting the efficiency and professionalism of the most elite organization our country is proud of? Is it time to look through a magnifying glass to figure out, what is ailing the Indian Army today?
