Lungi & Dhoti for colorful men of Tamilnadu, India - लुंगी धोती வேட்டி
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.

Indian men traditionally dress colorfully, any color. Public consent, no taboo, freedom of expression. Hindu, Christian and Sikh women do as well.
Lungi, a men's ankle long dress that at day time is folded up into a skirt and tucked-in around the belly-button.
The Lungis are almost as colorful as the villages around however the Dhotis are mostly in a rather simple checkered design and are a wrap around rather then a loop skirt.
I was 'warned' by my friends family, who gifted me with one, not to walk the streets in it as it supposed to be an in-home unofficial dress. Sort of pajamas or robe.
Dhalappa 'cap' or sweat-absorber
Hindi for Lungi and Dhoti: लुंगी धोतीand Tamil: வேட்டி லுங்கி
