Whoa...holy cow! Every once in a while someone in the world comes along and reminds us what a true hero really looks like. A 35 year-old Gurkha soldier named Bishnu Shrestha was riding a train when he suddenly found himself in the middle of a massive robbery. 40 men armed with knives, swords and guns stormed the train and began robbing the passengers.
Bishnu kept his peace while the gang snatched cell phones, jewelry and cash from other riders. But then, the thugs grabbed the 18 year-old girl sitting next to him and forcefully stripped her naked. Before the bandits could rape the poor girl in front of her helpless parents, Bishnu decided he had enough.
The girl cried for help, saying ´You are a soldier, please save a sister´, Shrestha recalled. I prevented her from being raped, thinking of her as my own sister.

Those Gurkhas are some tough hombres.
The title said Nepali and the first thing I thought of was a Gurkha. Those guys are awesome!
If this had happened in America - the liberals would charge him with carrying a dangerous weapon after saving her.
“Hand me my Kukri, it is the one that says Bad Mother F*$%@# on it.”
Courage and honor. Values we could teach in our schools instead of tolerance and submission.
Gurkha Khukri Knife.
It was six or seven last week.
Now it’s 40?
Next week, this guy will be holding off at the Alamo.
I recall a British officer many years ago being asked about the Gurkas he had commanded.
He said he absolutely loved them. They were terrifying to their enemies but really pleasant with their friends.
The brave little Gurkha.
Don't mess with Gurkhas.
One Gurkha against 40 thieves and robbers. Not a fair fight...the thieves and robbers were outmanned.
TOUGH dude! All honor to him — he is indeed a hero!
There were 40 guys. He took down around 7 of them and the others ran away. He speculated that they probably thought other Gurkahs might be on the train so they fled in terror.
Bravo to that brave warrior!
I bet they don't like seeing their little sister stoned to death either huh?
Hit the “gurkha” keyword; it’s always been “40”.
My dad told me stories of what the Gurkhas will do when the sun sets. Very scary stuff. Very brave men. Very short on time.
