Maj. Gen. Ian Cardozo – the Gurkha legend

The valiant Gurkhas may not think twice before sacrificing their life or shedding their blood on any battle-field. But at the same time, they are not prepared to do or die, or give their loyalty to any officer they come across. They are simple and straight forward but not stupid enough to be taken for a ride. This is one of the toughest challenge for any non-Gurkha officer to win over or earn their respect and to lead or command them in action.
