    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gorkha_regiments_(India)

    Also from Wikipedia "Gurkha, also spelled as Gorkha or Ghurka are people from Nepal and northern India, who take their name from the 8th century Hindu warrior-saint Guru Narakhnat .... [*******#0645ad][*******#000000]descendants of Bappa Rawal moved further east to found the house of Gorkha, which in turn founded the Kingdom of Nepal[/COLOR][*******#000000]. Gorkha District [/COLOR][*******#000000]is one of the 75 districts of modern Nepal.[/COLOR]

    [*******black]Gurkhas are best known for their history of bravery and strength in the Indian Army's Gorkha Regiments and the British Army's Brigade of Gurkhas." [/COLOR]

    [*******black]I think the Gurkha/Gorkha people mostly originate from northen India. [/COLOR]
    [*******black]I really don't want to sound racist and stupid, but I've met several Nepalis and immediately these guys as a group didn't look Nepalese to me.[/COLOR]

    Yes, KX3.
    Noveske is located in Grants Pass, South Oregon.

    The Indian Army recruits men from Nepal to serve in Indian Army Gurkha regiments just as the British Army does. If memory serves, the pay and benefits the men receive from either the British or Indian Armies has to be very similar. Which means that the men serving in the Indian Gurkha regiments are very well compensated for their services, as compared to the average Indian soldier.

    Actually Gorkhas in IA receive the same pay as any other soldier in India. British generally pay higher and when you convert Pounds into Nepali Rupee it is much higher than what IA pays still many Gorkhas serve in IA simply because they get to serve close to their home. Going from India to Nepal does not eve require a passport AFAIK.

    I was in Indian town of Dharchula where half the town is in India and half in Nepal and I knew many people who had houses on one side and went to the other side for work.

    We did one after Desert Storm. If we did one today we'd be called fascist.
