Durga Malla – Gorkha in INA

The role of the INA is often under rated when we discuss India’s freedom struggle. It singularly threatened to achieve what the British Empire was mortally scared of — a repeat of the events of 1857, with the added advantage of a highly-trained and modernised army. It is with relation to this INA that we find the name of Durga Malla, a Gorkha soldier from Dehradun, who fought against the British armies in World War II.
