"There are countless horrible things happening all over the world and horrible people prospering, but we must never allow them to disturb our equanimity or deflect us from our sacred duty to sabotage and annoy them whenever possible." -Auberon Waugh
Rode a slow train down the east coast of India 30 years ago, Nepali (Gurkha) family opposite. The old man never slept, that any of us saw. Just sat watching, coolly smoking a beedi. My friend asked in Hindi "why don't you sleep?". "Then who will watch?", he replied. Some of the legends are ridiculous, but their reputation is well deserved.
Thanks, Paco, for sharing this amazing story. I had not heard it before. He's the Nepalese Audie Murphy. Wonder what he's doing today?Bruce, you have so many wonderful stories. Yours is a great life! It would make an engaging book. I'd love to read your book.
All in favor of Bruce writing a book, say "aye!"."Aye!"Motion carried. Bruce, get cracking.
Pikers. For that action he ought to have received the Victoria Cross, like his granddad.More than thirty to one odds and he beat them off. It's obvious, the Talibannies were outnumbered by one Gurkha.Ayo Gurkhali!
I always heard you don't mess with Gurkhas. I'm on board for a Bruce book.
Oh thanks guys. I'll try.
