Percussionist  Mayookh Bhaumik said the idea of "some Hindu boys getting together  and singing a Muslim form of music for a Christian holiday was quite interesting."

"It wasn’t or isn’t a political statement. But, when I did get the idea to treat the famed carol differently, it was so interesting that I just couldn’t resist,” The Indian Express  quoted  him as saying.

Keeping the spirits of secularism and festivities around Christmas high,  a rendition of the Christmas carol was also played at a Music Academy in Chennai.
