    This man’s heroic actions deserve the praise he is given. Being armed with his wits and a knife he was able to defend an innocent from the onslaught of muslim animals. It sounds as if he defeated Ali Baba and the 40 thieves, absolutely amazing.

    Well Done Bishnu,
    It would be nice if the british goverment treated you the same as their home grown soldiers as of all the good work the Gurkhas have done over the years for England.

    “First 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”.
    – That’s judgmental and brave modern Gurkha proud on you Dai.

    What a chivalrous act ! Just at a call of a “sister”, the volcano of Gorkha rage erupted out of Humanity to bring the evil spirits to an end. This is what the Bir Gorkhalies are.
    Really inspirational and praiseworthy deed the world must learn from.

    It’s Gurka. And that story barely scrapes in as brave against the level of bravery that the Nepalise scout regiment have shown. Read a book called King of the mountain, mind blowing.

    He should be promoted for what he did to save everyone on the train. He wasn’t actually tired of just sitting and watching everyone getting robbed. Somewhere in him, he thought “Now it’s my chance to become a Hero like anyone has wished to be” so he defended the train and became a Hero.

    Kudos to this man. No matter what any individual’s moral archetype may be, I believe we can all agree that this man’s decision represents pure valor. It has become far too common for one to take the viewpoint of, “Well, as long as this doesn’t directly affect me”, so I applaud his willingness to to take a stand for the intrinsic moral thread that ties all human behavior. In relation to Immanuel Kant’s “silver rule”, do *not* unto others as one would *not* have done unto you. In layman’s terms, if you would not accept someone doing this to you, then you should not do it to others.

    The world needs more people like this man whom are willing to stand for the rights of others. While it is disheartening to know that there are those whom would commit those horrible crimes, it is refreshing to know that there are still those whom would stand in opposition. You, sir, are an exemplar of what our species is capable of representing; you restore my faith in humanity.

    Bravery and loyality lives in our gorkhalis soul,this is a matter of genes and our genes never let us to behave like a coward.

    A Canadian soldier was quoted in this encounter with a modern-day Gurkha soldier. “We fought alongside the Gurkha for a while. They are all very neat, clean shaven, and extremely polite. I was fascinated by their Kukri, and when I asked one of them if I could examine one, he very courteously unsheathed it and handed it to me. After I looked at it for a few minutes, I handed it back to him. Before he holstered the weapon, he very calmly slitted his thumb with the blade, causing a small cut. I was surprised by this, and when I asked him why he did that, he explained to me that it was tradition that the blade was not to be taken out of its sheath unless it was to draw blood.”

    This really breaks the western stereotypes about all indians being nerds and sissies…. the man was a gurkha and a soldier in the INDIAN army, whatever he did was expected of him. it is something that is expected out of all us indians. :-{)
