If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).
Collections are a JPG+ feature. You must be a JPG+ member to create new collections and to add photos to collections.

Thats what I heard many times in India.
But unlike the American Indians,which developed their social belief system isolated from the 'old' world, Indians from India don't mix a flesh and blood guest with a mythical celestial being.
In rural India, this belief takes form as a total responsibility for the well being of the guest. Egoless and with no account book open.
Many time I was not an expected guest. I would just end up in this or that village or town. Still, whom ever I would happen to be curious about me would take this responsibility. It seemed this was a right rather then an obligation. There was much festivity about it although with sensitivity to my peace and privacy too.
Here, I was visiting and hosted by my friend Rais' Muslim family in a village in Rajasthan.
His brother had a new home just built and so I was offered to stay there.
One night I was feeling a little sick. Khan, Rais brother, had called not 1 but 2 doctors to come and see me.
Obviously a doctor visit in a village is not just a business appointment. They all know each other personally and sometimes there is also a family relationship amongst them.
