The concept of jugni was one of a spiritual one relating to a persons understanding of the world and needs or wants with God. However this has been altered by subsequent singers after Alam Lohar where jugni is described as an innocent girl.

Jugni is an age-old narrative device used in Punjabi folk music. While literally it is the "female firefly", in folk music it stands in for the poet-writer who uses Jugni as an innocent observer to make incisive, often humorous, sometimes sad but always touching observations.Much of early Jugni writing is spiritual in nature and relates to one's understanding of the world and one's relationship with God. Many poet philosophers have used the Jugni device, which is in the public domain, to make social, political or philosophical, often mildly subversive, commentary. Jugni is cross religious and depending on the writer, invokes the name of God (often using the world "Saeen", the vernacular word for Lord), Ali or the Gurus. A kernel of truth is an essential and integral part of every Jugni composition.
Jugni poetry and Jugni music took birth a century ago in 1906. Before that time, nowhere do we find any mention of her in history or the folk memory.
