Some stories are unbelievable because they’re true. Something which wouldn’t be believed if it was written into a movie script or book, is not uncommon for the legendary warriors of Nepal.

For Gurkhas, this was not an unusual feat.
Facing a surprise attack at a Afghanistan checkpoint, Sergeant Dipprasad Pun, 31, hoisted a 50lb machine gun off its mount to blast at the enemy.Image credit: My Nepal
When they kept coming, he launched 17 grenades and picked up an SA80 assault rifle, which jammed on him.
Then he threw the machine gun's metal tripod at his attackers, before fending them off with a sandbag while yelling in Nepali: "I will kill you!"
With nothing left to hand, the exhausted hero finally managed to fire off a Claymore mine, and the blast sent the enemy scattering.
Pun's medal citation said his actions saved the lives of three comrades and prevented the key military position he was guarding from being overrun.
