Can anyone tell me English of these two proverbs?

Jab jagoo tabhi savera & Sawdhani hati durghatna gati.

Jab [color=green]jagoo tabhi savera

Isn’t “jago” correct?

They are in Hindi and this what they roughly translate to:

  1. The morning is when you wake up.
  2. If you’re not attentive, accidents/mishaps happen.

Do we have any equivalent proverbs in English?


You’re right. It’s jago. I wonder how you know that.
