Dhaba ढाबा - Freshly slow cooked - When you're ready !
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.

I remember being 12 years old, we visited the Ford assembly line in Detroit. By the end of the tour we got to where the completed cars were driven off the assembly line and into a parking lot. Every 5 minutes a car would be completed and roll off. That didn't mean however that is takes 5 minutes to make a car ....
The same goes for Indian "fast food". A diner can come into a Dhaba (local restaurant, ढाबा ) every 5 minutes and immediately be served fresh food. However this food was chopped of fresh vegetables and spices and slow cooked the same day in a process that took over an hour.
The constant stream of diners keep consuming the food which makes for an ever fresh pots being cooked.
The other clever thing about these Dhabas is that you do not waste food but you also never leave hungry. That is because your plate is refilled, free, by the cook, every time you finish a specific portion of it.
The bread, Chappati or Roti, is also flying right off the Tandoor (oven) and onto your plate every time you finished your last one.
