About name Jugnu-life

Jugnu is a Punjabi word which, is the name of an insect that flies and blinks light. You can often see him/ her ( i don't know real gender :P ) in villages and open spaces during the night time.

Jugnu spreads light and that's why I feel i should the name of this blog as Jugnu-life, I am just trying to live in such a way that i spread light in the path of others. Trying to help them in which ever way I could.

  2. Dear Mr. Jagat Singh

    I found your translation into English from the Rockstar song's Katya karoon lyrics.

    Can you please tell me where to find this song's lyrics in Punjabi (Gurmukhi) script?

    Ernst Tremeol


    1. Hello Ernst,
      Glad to hear from your side.

      I dont have Punjabi script handy for this , and i also doubt that it would be available as such on internet.

      However you can see transliteration of the song in english at


      and we can quickly see its Punjabi version by using Google online tool


      However this tool will have some spelling mistakes.

      If you need this i can send after corrections for you.

      Please let me know.

      Just side question:

      How come you got to know about this song and reason for your interest in Punjabi :)


      Jagat Singh
