Discrimination faced by Mumbaikars...

If the housing societies in Mumbai (Bombay) are only meant for families (married couples), then the government of Maharashtra should make marriage compulsory in the state/city.
Or else the government should tell its citizens where will Unmarried, Divorcees, Bachelors, Spinsters live in the city of skyscrapers or is Bombay only for those who have families.
This is one of the greatest mental blocks of Mumbaikars, who otherwise want to bask in the FALSE HALO of Cosmopolitanism.
This disease (of not giving apartments to Bachelors, Muslims, etc on rent) is specially prevalent in housing societies where the Gujaratis, Marathis and North Indians (to some extent) abound; while the rest of the population is more or less okay with the concept.
The government of Maharashtra should take this matter seriously and devise laws to eradicate this malice ASAP, so that BOMBAY (and its suburbs) becomes free of discrimination based on Marital Status, Religion, etc. Or else the Honourable Supreme Court of India should step in, and give directions to the state or central governments -- so that the fundamental rights of its citizens enshrined in the constitution of India is not violated.

Kingfisher Airlines pays salaries for June to select staff
Ashwini Phadnis
[Why should the management pay the old  employees, before the airlines flies off? Kingfisher Airlines management has decided to take care of their families or what, but what about the losses, these people created to the shareholders of both Kingfisher Ltd and U H Holdings Ltd---who will compensate them?]
New Delhi, Feb. 18:   The cash-strapped Kingfisher Airlines has started disbursing some staff salaries after a gap of almost two and half months.
Sources told the Business Line that sections of the staff, mainly airport staff, received their salaries for June 2012 on Monday.
The monthly salary outgo for the airline is around Rs 20 crore and its staff members have not been paid regular salaries since June last year.
In November last year the airline cleared some back wages with a promise of settling more wages. This promise was not fulfilled.
The airline has over 4,000 people on its rolls.
Lenders’ move:
The decision to make part payment to staff members comes six days after a consortium of lenders led by the State Bank of India (SBI) took an in principle decision to recall the loan given to the airline.
Seventeen banks have an exposure of Rs 7,000 crore to Kingfisher Airlines.
The banks have now said that the matter of Kingfisher Airline’s loan had reached a dead end.
The airline which ceased operations in October last year, reported a loss of Rs 755 crore for the third quarter ended December 31, 2012.
The loss was reported despite the airline not operating a single flight during the period under review.
The Kingfisher stock closed at R. 10 on the NSE on Monday, up 4.71 per cent from Friday’s close.
