Bhangra tailgate party, A warm Punjabi Sikh hug ਸਿੱਖੀ ਪੰਜਾਬ ਭੰਗੜਾ
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).

I got back to Bhagsu after my friends left back to Israel. One evening, returning by foot from near by town of McLaud Ganj, I noticed a group of Sikhs having a tailgate party in a parking lot. The hatch of their trunk flew open and the Bhangra music was filling the air. As I walked by on the road climbing to my lodge, they called me up to join. I smiled and came closer, they poured me scotch and coke they had with them and soon enough I was dancing and hugging Enjoying new friends and an unexpected experience.
A few days earlier, at Amritsar, my Israeli friends daughter got similar attention from another young Punjubi man. Here's the story: http://jpgmag.com/photos/3403843
