Caste[edit]

i wud love to hear more bout Gurung's...cause these days ppl don't really know bout their culture, especially the new generation...as formyslf i'm lama gurung...and my ancestors village is in mustang...but i was born n raised in ktm n i dont know much bout or culture...n i get confused a lot of times...so i hope u could help by writing more stuffs bout it...in details.really appreciate ur work...its really helpful!

Style[edit]

This is just a stylistic thing--but wouldn't it be better to put more introductory stuff in the first paragraph and remove the list of places where the Gurung live? I mean, that seems like something that should be mentioned in the body of the article instead and the first paragraph should give an overview. --Gandalf 03:40, 12 February 2006 (UTC)rosighar

History[edit]

Reading The Gurkhas by John Parker and the earlier works of John Masters gives so much more on the Gurkhas and the Gurungs rather than what we have here. Anyway, its a start so lets assume its gonna be exhaustive and as informative. We are proud to be Gurung!!! Sisney dude 19:04, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

Percentage of Population[edit]

The first section of the page states that the Gurung people form 2.39% of the Nepalese population. The side-bar says 0.5%, and the table at the bottom of the article referenced (http://www.nepaldemocracy.org/ethnicity/ethnic_demography.htm) suggests 1.2% —Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.56.53.146 (talk) 00:02, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

I have removed following paragraph from "See Also"[edit]

Following in its current form is not encyclopedic material.

Currently, GURUNG are quite sure to follow-up their ancester practice BON ritual in every expect so far possible. Tamu Pye Lhu Sangh Central Committee/Nepal is playing a vital role by providing Close Camp Training specially for FUNERAL Ritual with support from expat Pachyu & Klihbri. Several Branchs of Tamu Pye Lhu Sangh were formed by local GURUNG residence in Hong Kong; UK, Kuwait, Omen; Quatar, Belgium, Brunei, Banaras/India; Brunei. As majority of GURUNG still follows BON practices, specially in FUNERAL ritual perform by Pachyu & Klihbri; these Branches are playing Vital role for management of all requirement./
