    I would like to thank my collegues from Sisooni, Rahmat Ali Khan, Ghulam Nasir, and Bakhsh Dil Khan, without their help it was hard to get it


  3. Sekhez kor should be remembered as part of resources that has contributed in the education development of the area. Not only education it has been in use for other purposes as well for a long time, even now it is used as a mortar for dildong and it is also used as a plaster for wall because it has the properity of making good and strong water paste.
