He’s more widely known as the Rambo Gurkha soldier by now and he is also officially a Pride of Britain. Gurkha hero Dip Prasad Pun who saved the lives of three men as well as his own during sentry duty in Helmand Province in Afghanistan was awarded with the prestigious Pride of Britain award by Myleen Klass and Andrew Flintoff in London just few days ago.
When on-stage, Sergeant Pun responded with a humble answer upon receiving his award by saying ”I didn’t think about it at all. I just did what I had to do. It was very exciting.”
Indeed, I am proud and I think I can say WE are proud as Dip Prasad Pun has not only united the Gurkhali population but he has united us Nepalis and we can together say we are proud of him and feel great for his achievement.
