Choke is a Inductor and gives the blast voltage to start conduction at the start, capacitor may or may not be put in the ckt.

The function of choke is to provide high voltage enough for ionization to take place in a tube light and after establishment and substenance of ionization, limit the voltage across the tube. That is the reason why a tube fuses when the choke is shorted.

Choke provides a high ramp voltage to the tube light. This high ramp voltage ionise atoms of gas in the tube light.By which conduction takes place.

Choke will increase the voltage to energize the gaseous mixture for lightening but basically choke is an inductor which produced high induced voltage when currents in it tends to zero. So for this we need high frequency which provided by starter.
