Back to 3rd Gorkha Rifles

 

 

 

The commonly used version of the motto of 3 Gorkha Rifles is "Kafar Bhanda Marnu Ramro"

 

However, there are several versions of the motto in Nepali. All of them mean the same "It is better to die in Valour than to live like a Coward"

 

The Official Motto is "KAFAR BHANDA MARNU JATI"

 

the other versions are:

KAFAR BHANDA MARNU RAMRO/JATI

KAFAR HUNNU BHANDA MARNU RAMRO/JATI

KAYAR BHANDA MARNU RAMRO/JATI

KAYAR HUNNU BHANDA MARNU RAMRO/JATI

 

The "Ramro" can be  replaced with "Jati" which essentially means "traditional" or "befitting of ones caste" 

 

 

 

Lt Col Jaideep Chanda provided this information on the motto.
