“Far from Home, heard my friend complaining about Chilaikalaan. (40 days of harsh winter in Kashmir ) He was chanting “power hy aaww” (light just came ) , got an idea, and printed this melody. Hope everyone in Kashmir can relate. (sic),” wrote Vinyl Kashmir after uploading the song with vocals by UB and lyrics by UB and Sajid Hussain Bhat.
Abdul Kashif Shah said the lyrics of the song were ‘truly relatable’.

Another listener Shah Jaweed commented: “Beautiful lyrics and melodious voice. The Best thing about our memories with Chillie Kalan (sic)”.
