Global phenomenon

Sir, — I refer to Kalpana Sharma's "In the name of servitude" (Aug. 24) in which she talks about servant culture destroying developing societies. I beg to differ because the culture is global, regardless of race, caste, colour or creed. People who do others' `dirty' work for a price are called "indispensables." And when fortune smiles on them, they go to the other side of the divide! This situation is universal.
