The Gurkha War (1814–1816), sometimes called the Gorkha War or the Anglo-Nepalese War, was fought between the Kingdom of Nepal, Now Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal and the British East India Company as a result of border tensions and ambitious expansionism. The war ended with the signing of the Treaty of Sugauli in 1816.
Balabhadra Kunwar is known as 'The hero of Khalanga'. His father’s name was Chandrabir who was very brave and courageous. Balabhadra Kunwar was also had the same bravery when the border dispute between British India and Nepal arose. Balabhadra Kunwar was in-charge of the fort of Nalapani. The fort was simple and at the top of small hill. It is five miles far from Deharadun in India. He had only six hundred soldiers including women and children. The enemy, on the other hand, had a large army with modern arms and ammunitions. The British General sent him a letter to surrender. Balabhadra denied his proposal and said, "I shall meet him in the battle field".
Turning to the English before leaving the place, Balbhadra said to them in a loud voice, "it was impossible for you to have victory over the fort, but i leave it on my own accord."
