As per BBC 18 MARCH 2008 who are gurkhas : the name"Gurkha" comes from the hill town of Gorkha from which the nepalese kingdom had expanded.
BBC tells : The ranks have always been dominated by 4 ethnic groups, the gurungs and mangars from central nepal,the rais and limbus from east Nepal.
GURKHAS ARE DRAWN FROM A NUMBER OF NEPALESE ETHNIC GROUPS INCLUDING THE "GURUNG",WHO CONTRIBUTE THE GREATEST PERCENTAGE OF ALL ETHNIC GROUPS.
CLEAR the gurkha soldiers were not a single ethnic group,tribe,clan or caste but were composed of the mangar, gurung,limbu and rai tribes.
