A popular Kashmiri saying

Winter will flee, snow will melt
Again will spring make its presence felt

Wande tzale. Sheen gali. Beyi yi bahaar.
(winter [will] flee, Snow [will] melt, Again [will] come spring)
Kashmiri people use this to express optimism in hardships and adversity – The metaphor of winter has a melancholic and intimate resonance for Kashmiris because this harsh season, at its peak, is relentless and can seem unending, while spring feels like a nostalgic memory.
