Into the history
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.

Feudalisn ended long back. Post colonial india has seen a conscious attempt to abolish land based feudalism. The Marxist bengal has been forerunners of land reform. Hence, once feudal lords are now mostly occupying a low middle class status. This is especially true in rural bengal. There is hardly any surplus money to suatain the feudalistic pursuits.
Durga festival has been a hallmark of aristocracy. Today the most profound form of worship and festival of Goddess Durga is associated with community based and sponsored event of the capital city kolkata. However, feudal mode of worship is still continuing but in a poverty stricken manner.
This photo is takeb at one of those feudal lord's ruined palacea in somrabajar, hooghly district of west bengal.
