Apparently, for some speakers, _hind_" is just noise forming part of a
fixed, meaninigless, phrase tossed into a sentence for purposes of
introducing an element of pswaydo-elegance into one's prose.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"––a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
