Gorkha's soldiers fail to change fate of own communities

By Xinhua in Gorkha, Nepal ( China Daily ) Updated: 2015-12-31 08:00:13

Nepal is home to world class warriors, who are recognized for their bravery as Gurkhas. These Gurkhas originate from the northeastern hilly district of Gorkha, which itself is steeped in 240 years of monarchic history.

Barpak is one of the villages in Gorkha which produces this fearless military power, but unfortunately, it itself is underdeveloped and lacks infrastructure.

Inhabited by ethnic Ghale and Gurung communities, Barpak has more than 50 percent of a total of 1,500 households' populations serving in foreign armies, mostly in Britain, India, Singapore, Iraq and Afghanistan. However, Barpak doesn't have a single hospital, private higher secondary school or even a good road connection.
