When I was kid I was sure I wanted to be a Gurkha when I grow up, even though I am not Nepali, but Sikh! So, is the influence when my father was connected to the Gurkha regiment. Gurkha's are the bravest of the brave, terror for the enemies and the friendliest people on the earth - in a way I grew with them as a kid. I am so glad and will never forget.
