(Gujaratis believe that if anyone is constantly remembered he will start having hiccups.)

Rupal: Daddy must have reached Delhi by now, isn't it, Mummy?

Mummy: Come on, Rupal! You have been remembering him since morning - when will he return? What will he do there? what will he bring for us? Stop thinking of him, or he will suffer from hiccups. Can't you understand that?

Rupal: OH! In that case, Mummy, every morning you continuously say Hare Krishna! Hare Krishna! Other people also keep taking his name every minute. So Krishna must suffer from hiccups all the time.
