Gorakha
|nickname=The Gurkhas / The Bravest of the Brave |motto=कांथर हुनु भन्दा मर्नु राम्रो"Kaatar Hunnu Bhanda Marnu Ramro" (Nepali)"Better to die than to be a coward" The Gurkhas (Nepali : गोर्खा) (/ˈɡɜrkə/ or /ˈɡʊərkə/) are indigenous people mainly from the mid-western and eastern Nepal. Their name derives from the Hindu warrior-saint Guru Gorakhnath (8th century ).
There are Gorkha military units in the Nepalese, British and the Indian army (Gorkhas) enlisted mainly in Nepal. Although they meet many of the requirements of Article 47 of Protocol I of the Geneva Conventions regarding mercenaries, they are exempt under clauses 47(a)(c)(d)(e)&(f) similar to the French Foreign Legion.
Gurkhas are closely associated with the khukuri, a forward-curving Nepalese knife and have a well known reputation for their fearless military prowess. The former Indian Army Chief of Staff Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw, once stated that "If a man says he is not afraid of dying, he is either lying or is a Gurkha."
