Drishti Bommai - Psychologically disorders evil thoughts | Non-violence, Ahimsa
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.

What can you do about someone heading your-way with jealous thoughts and evil aims?
In some western countries you raise your fences, lock the gates, arm alarm, call the police or if you carry a knife/gun you draw, threat and sometimes shoot, injure and kill.
However in India they had thousands of years to streamline their lives.
To break the vicious cycle of violence they came up with Drishti Bommai (literally meaning a 'gazing toy/doll').
Once you come across, the surprise and your gaze fixed on it cuts your thread of thought. That easy it just disarmed the "bomb" you're carried.
In my daily life I carry a camera for any interesting happening on my way. Funny, that the most unpredictable, unique, surprising sights I forget to capture. It's the same effect Indian harnessed to help divert and relax tensed situations.
