AVE HITCHKI*

This took off from a song I came across.Now traditional Indian folk music is not my everyday cup of tea, but there’s something about the tune that hooked me. The lyrics are about a lover who’s remembering and missing her man who’s gone off elsewhere in search of work.

  • AVE HITCHKI – Hindi for “I’ve got the hiccups”.
    According to old folklore, hiccupsΒ occur when someone is thinking about you.


Every fitful hiccup a gently violent reminder of her

Every spasmodic heartbeat an intermittent reminder of my love

Every fragmentary thought a momentary reminder of times
