White Lakan: Japanese Honda, flimsy duplicate to hardy asli Rajdoot
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.

Originally I meant to write a nostalgic piece about vintage motorcycle but apparently I was met with a real-time requiem. In the background, inside his driveway stood a shiny and new black Japanese Honda motorcycle, it told the whole story: the government had decided to recall all Rajdoots (8 alone in the sugar factory his stationed at) because of spare part scarcity ad the difficulty to get the bikes serviced.
Jeyasankar whispered to me â€œThis is a 'White Lakan' â€œ, or put into English this Tamil term refers to white domesticated and caged hens which lay low quality eggs. This bike looks good but can't do the job of it's predecessor..
Our Rajdoot owner had dragged the deposit of his until he got a private replacement bike (the government supplies no more duty bikes). So next month his bike is going to be auctioned. My friend Sankar says that 5,000 Rupees (~$100) is about what it will go for.
