Good to know that. I was an instructor to a batch that included women cadets while in the Navy. And a relative's daughter was a part of the first batch of women that joined the IAF as ground engineers. She's now retired and immigrated to Canada.

When one solicits public opinion, it might not be what one wants to hear or a reflection of own opinion. Also, one cannot summarily reject experiences (the quoted blog) or facts (the quoted publication) when it doesnt suit their point of view.
On the larger issue, I am all for individuals who fit the bill, irrespective of caste, creed, gender, etc. May the best warrior defend India.
What I am against is political correctness that might be detrimental to organizational effectiveness. The services have, in cases, been forced to create billets when none were required to accomodate women officers.
