Gorkha Soldier Saves Girl from Rape and Takes on 40 Train Robbers with Only a Khukuri

Bishnu Shrestha, who had just retired from the Indian army where he served as a Gorkha soldier, held off a horde of robbers that tried to rob a train in India. From the article on Republica:

“The band of about 40 robbers, some of whom were travelling as passengers, stopped the train in the Chittaranjan jungles in West Bengal around midnight. Shrestha– who had boarded the train at Ranchi in Jharkhand, the place of his posting–was in seat no. 47 in coach AC3.

“They started snatching jewelry, cell phones, cash, laptops and other belongings from the passengers,” Shrestha recalled. The soldier had somehow remained a silent spectator amidst the melee, but not for long. He had had enough when the robbers stripped an 18-year-old girl sitting next to him and tried to rape her right in front of her parents. He then took out his khukuri and took on the robbers.

“The girl cried for help, saying ´You are a soldier, please save a sister´,” Shrestha recalled. “I prevented her from being raped, thinking of her as my own sister,” he added. He took one of the robbers under control and then started to attack the others. He said the rest of the robbers fled after he killed three of them with his khukuri and injured eight others…“Fighting the enemy in battle is my duty as a soldier; taking on the dacoits in the train was my duty as a human being,” said the Indian army nayak.

Essentially, one man took on 40 armed thieves with only a khukuri. What is a khukuri?

Bergelar sebagai seorang CEO syarikat pada usiaku 18 tahun,bukanlah satu bebanan yang ringan bagi aku.Semua keputusan terletak ditangan aku.Malah aku mengalami masalah untuk meyakinkan anak-anak buahku.Keputusan dan kewibawaan aku sering diragui.Hampir aku putus asa,tapi janji aku terhadap mak sering kali membakar semangat aku.Papa??? Sudah lama aku lupuskan perkataan ini dari kamus hidup aku.Sampai saat ini aku masih tak boleh maafkan papa.Bagi aku papa sangat pentingkan diri sendiri.Ingin membina mahligai bahagia tanpa aku.Papa seolah-olah menidakkan kebahagian yang pernah tercipta di sini dengan meninggalkan segalanya disini.Rumah,syarikat malah aku.

IMO I think that Shrestha went way, way beyond his call to Duty as a Human Being.
Neutralizes three, incapacitates eight and the remaining twenty nine beat a hasty retreat to go change their drawers(if they were wearing any). Can you imagine how utterly humiliated they are. Twenty nine to one and the odds were still stacked against them.
Priceless!!!

From this we know who are Gorkhas, But do they have a evil side also ?
What is Gorkha Land & Were should it be ?

DOES GORKHA LAND ALREADY EXISTS ?

Gorkha Land may be a legitimate demand, to Gorkhas / Nepalese, living around the world. But is this demand Legitimate at all ? that too only in India ? and above all in a State of West Bengal only ? Why is this ?

My Question is who are Gorkhas ? Are Gorkhars not Nepalese ? If Gorkhas are Nepalese, they already have their own land, that is Nepal !!! Why are the Gorkhas not renaming Nepal as Gorkha Land ?

However if Gorkhas are not Nepalese, then the Government of Nepal should issue a statement to the United Nations stating the same. The Gorkhas should do the same by stating that they are not Nepalese, they are without any Land, in the UN requesting their own Land.

If the Gorkhas are Nepalese, How are the Nepalese influx to India, wanting their own Land in Indian Sovereign republic nation as Gorkha Land ??? They can demand Nepal to be Gorkha Land, is it Not ?

If at any point the Government of India thinks that Gorkhas / Nepalese, have given good service to the Indian Nation, then why should only one state of West Bengal Suffer by giving away a part of it and not the whole of the country ? Or is it that Gorkhas / Nepalese, have given only service to West Bengal ?

Will all of India, reimburse the land, that will be lost by West Bengal, if Gorkhas / Nepalese, Land is approved by the Union Government ?

Actually Gorkhas have served the whole world, specially United Kingdom, Have the Gorkhas / Nepalese, made a similar demand in that country too ? if not why not ?

What happens if another influx in another part of the world demands their own Land, will this be granted ? far from it will it be entertained at all ?

What I mean to say, Indians leaving in Canada, demand their own land in Canada!!! ? Or has the Indians granted their own Land in Sri Lanka ?

So why is this an Issue in India ? Because only one thing Politics matters ? the only thing that is important is one seat of Member of Parliament and a few Legislative seats ?

The END RESULT, we invite population from another country, make them our citizens, or else they cant vote !!! and then WE GIVE THEM OUR LAND BY THEIR DEMAND ?????
