@harkhe7: I don't know what brave gurkhas you are talking about. They may have existed in past , but certainly not in present. When I returned from US to Nepal and lived there 6 years, all I saw was phony, corrupt, thugs, jholey, dalals, bootlicker everywhere. Finding a honest person was like finding a needle in haystack in Nepal. I saw people selling fake hand sanitizer, masks, medicine, water bottle etc so they could make some money, but had no regard for the consequences fellow countrymen may face as a result. Even the Nepal army is completely hollow within itself due to widespread corruption.
When peoples' soul is long died you can easily buy them by just throwing some bones ($). So, brave gurkhas exists as a slogan, but in reality it is just a myth, at least in my observation and experience. I find people living outside Nepal to be more patriotic toward Nepal than one living inside. I will conclude saying I live in reality and I am aware of the saying phul ko aakha ma phulai sansara.
