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.

Mallya Can’t Fly
[The headline of this article has no connect with the main story. The headline should have been "Mallya Will Be Able To Make KFA Ltd Fly"? This is called "Yellow Journalism" and these types of media channels and dailies abound in India; who earns by creating unnecessary sensations. Many a times these acts as "FRONT RUNNERS or DALAL's of some operators/promoters. However, the article admits, my yesterday's take that, the recent government decision has nothing much to do, with the ongoing restructuring plans of Kingfisher Airlines Ltd. There is unnecessary panic selling by the vested groups. Therefore, those who have deep pockets should accumulate the shares of KFA Ltd..........]
Is this the end of the road for Mr Vijay Mallya’s Kingfisher Airlines? The government’s decision to withdraw all international flying rights and domestic slots from the airline may or may not be worse than the fact that it is struggling to raise funds to restart.
No doubt, the decision to cancel slots only means that the road to recovery has just got a little longer. KFA has accumulated losses of over  ` 8,000 crore and is facing a threat from a consortium of 17 banks led by the SBI to recall loans to the tune of  ` 7,500 crore. Top officials of the company kept up a brave face saying that the loss of the slots is not a big blow as they can always reapply for them once funds to run the airline are assured. The airline has been plagued with problems and last December its licence was withdrawn as it was unable to satisfy the regulatory authority on issues concerning safety and preparedness for revival. In a bid to throw KFA a lifeline, the Centre opened the doors for foreign investment in airlines, but this did not help either. Mr Mallya, it seems, is now banking on the deal with Diageo Plc, the world’s largest liquor company which will infuse nearly  ` 5,500 crore into the kitty. Either that or KFA will soon be history.
