Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on February 10, 2011

[This material is based on the mail received and made no change. ]

12 basic bulletin points, for a Gurkha documentary to look into, here they are and in no order of importance.

ONE: The Gurkha and Nepalese Community Group’s Leaders around the UK, as well as Gurkha and Nepalese Welfare Rights Organisation’s Official’s here in the UK too. Want and have asked for, to hold formal talks we the British and Nepalese Government’s Minister’s, Civil Servants and Military Officer’s, with regards Gurkha and Nepalese Welfare, Interests and Rights, the British Government will not agree basically.

TWO: The infighting between the different Gurkha and Nepalese Community Group’s Leaders around the UK, as well as Gurkha and Nepalese Welfare Rights Organisation’s Official’s here in the UK and in Nepal.

THREE: Gurkha soldier’s military service pay and pension’s rights, being made equally and back dated to 1947, or at least holding discussions with the British Government over these, to come to some kind of reasonable settlement on pay and pension rights. Of increasing the amount or percentage Gurkha Soldier’s and/or their Widow’s received, compared to British Soldier’s and/or Widow’s receive, that is from the 33.3 per cent Gurkha’s or their Widow’s presently receive.

He had lived in Hounslow since coming to England in 2008 and recently moved into the Chiswick War Memorial Homes, where his widow Mana Maya Gurung remains.

Hounslow Mayor Colin Ellar said: “Mr Gurung carried similar disabilities to another hero, Lord Horatio Nelson, and likewise he was a formidable character. I would describe him as fiery and even feisty because when he wanted to do something he was unstoppable. Read the rest of this entry »
