The Gurkha in Myanmar

One thing that always interests me is how and why people migrate en masse. From ‘how’ the numerous Japanese ended up in Sao Paulo, Brazil to stories of why the Han moved south in China setting up the magnificent tolou as defenses, I’m always curious.

Having spent considerable time in Myanmar, one thing that always struck me was the considerable volume of Gurkhas that now call it home, so I thought I’d investigate further and see what I could find out about the who, why and when of Gurkhas in Myanmar.
