Gurkha's have an amazing reputation in the world. Perhaps one of the best light infantry, counter insurgency, mountain and jungle warfare soldiers, they are famed for their loyalty and ferocity. Anybody who has been on the receiving end of a bellowing Gurkha wielding his kukri will know what I mean.
But they are deeply religious. As a matter of fact, most soldiers are deeply religious. It is when you are operating on the edges of human emotions and losses, is where you are with God and your thoughts turn to Him. Extreme hardship and sorrow also make you think of God.
Here's an interesting story about how they have build their own temple in a base in the UK.
All this to be taken with a grain of piquant salt!!!
