The best little Chai wala shop in Kallakurichi
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.

While daily there for an afternoon cup of strong and sweet chai, I just had to snap the activity that takes place in this little shack that always has a lineup waiting for the next batch.
After a month here I also felt like sweating a little for them, although it's obvious they are proud of their quality and popularity regardless. So I put this postcard together, printed a few 6 X 4 inches photos and handed them over. The surprise and joy were worth much more then the sum of minutes I put into this little production. In this case nobody was shy to ask for his photo to be included and I ended up producing a variety of collages to include every employee in the shop.
Ohh... if you happen to come around, prepare 6 Rupees for a glass. If you only have a 10 rupee note... better search for a single rupee coin so the cashier can spare you a 5 rupee coin for change - thats the way he likes it :)
