pollution that in some cities—such as Karachi, Islamabad, Lahore, Peshawar, Quetta, Faisalabad and Rawalpindi—has exceeded levels deemed safe by the World Health Organization. And Pakistan is suffering a lot from droughts from the dry climates. His brother was killed when Sarkhosh was in his twenties, and his family fled, first to Peshawar and finally to Quetta, Pakistan. Sarkhosh revived his skills by singing and composing songs inspired by a sense of nationalism and suffering in exile. He didn't sing for commercial gain, but out of nostalgia and to convey the feelings about refugee life as experienced by refugees of Afghanistan dispersed throughout the world. They went to his concerts in their thousands, marking Sarkhosh's rise as a singer. It was in Quetta that he mastered the harmonium under the Pakistani composer Arbab Ali Khan.

terrain, crossed deserts and 4,000-metre-high mountain passes, but made good progress and took Kandahar on April 25, 1839. On July 22, in a surprise attack, they captured the until-then impregnable fortress of Ghazni, which overlooks a plain leading eastward into the North West Frontier Province. An Afghan had betrayed his sovereign, and the British troops managed to blow up one city gate and marched into the city in a euphoric mood. In taking this fortress, they suffered 200 men killed and wounded, while the Afghans lost nearly 500 men. 1,600 Afghans were taken prisoner with an unknown number wounded. The fact that Ghazni was well supplied eased the further advance considerably. The story starts with Yama or Jamshid, the father of Garshasp who was overthrown by Zahak and flees to King Ghurang, the king of the country called Zabolistān the region expended from modern Quetta includes province of Zabul, Kandahar, central region Helmand all the way to edge of small Iranian Sistan which still holds the name Zabol, combined as part of Balochistan province. In Zabulistan Jamshid falls in love with the king's daughter and gives birth to Garshasp. Jamshid though was forced to flee again despite king Ghorang's promise to her daughter that King Ghurang will support Jamshid will give him army and money, and face Zehak if he has to, but Jamshid knew that Zehak's Army was much stronger that he did wanted the country of Sistan to be destroyed therefore he went to Ind (India) and from India to Chin (China). Garshasp's mother takes poison and kill herself, Garshasp spends much of his life with his grandfather and grows to be one mighty warrior like Jamshid himself. After Death of Ghurang, he was to become king, although the secret remains until birth of Kariman, he sends his son to help Fereydun the enemy of Zahak. Kariman comes with sorrow and reads Garshasp's letter which states that country of Zabulistan, Kabul is sided with Fereydun and that Fereydun shares same blood from bother side and that Garshasp is the only son of Yama the great, therefore unity between Army of Kabulistan, and Fridon means defeat to Zahak. For the next many generations son of Nariman as well as grandson of Kariman Sam became supporters of Fridon's administarion. '''Spin Boldak''' or '''Spin Buldak''' is a border town in the southern Kandahar province of Afghanistan, right next to the Durand Line border with Pakistan.

They finally returned to the UK in 1926, barracked at Maryhill in Glasgow, where they saw duty in the General Strike.

In 1930 they moved to Quetta, then Lahore in 1934, and finally Hong Kong in January 1938.
