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.

Traditional laundry is mostly the only one available across rural India. Washing machines are still a rarity as most homes are a single room for the whole extended family. Electricity is expensive and wiring is not proper yet for heavy duty appliances.
Besides, India was blessed with natural water streaming which are also a visited for Hindu practices.
No doubt dryers are out of question, but then again, most India has an abundance of sunshine. Off monsoon rivers expose vast banks and during monsoonplanes of grass both used for laying out clothes to dry. Because of the comfortable temperatures in the vast planes, garments are of light fabrics and usually dry quickly.
Women bath in their clothes, elders often topless, boys and girl run around naked in a combination of a bath and a playground.
