In the caption, Babil penned an emotional note describing how he misses his father's smell and the sensations on his fingertips. He wrote, "Dear baba, I’m trying to remember that perfume you wore, when we travelled north to watch lights dance in Norway. I remember exactly, the feeling of your smell, but I can’t remember the materialism of it. I remember the sensation on my fingertips when you spread my palms to tell my fortunes but it frightens me to forget your playful pinch on my nostrils."

He added, "I have begged, and I have cried to the heavens, to let not my body forget yet; for my soul is not ready to forfeit." Further, Babil added how he is not ready to move on and wrote, "I am alright with the idea that possibly I will never be, we were never governed by logic. You and I, singular and cosmic. Everything is, and yet it is not; You’re a perfect teardrop in my asylum. I was mindful and yet I forgot, my intonations of violence. You still breathe, in my thoughts; and our institutions of madness. I miss that, what I fought; your explorations of silence. A creation of yours, Babil." Kay Kay Menon and several other celebrities sent love via the comment section. Babil Khan originally wrote the piece for Hindustan Times.
