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.

Reliance Broadcast Network Ltd (CMP:Rs.25.90): Gathering Momentum
Grey wins multiple brands of Reliance Broadcast Network
By Ashwini Gangal, afaqs!, Mumbai,
Reliance Broadcast Network has awarded Grey India with the creative duties of its TV channels Big Magic, Big CBS Spark, Big CBS Love, Big CBS Prime, Big RTL Thrill and radio brand 92.7 Big FM.

Grey Delhi will handle 92.7 Big FM, Big Magic (UP, Bihar and Jharkhand) and Big CBS Spark Punjabi. "Delhi," in the words of Jishnu Sen, chief executive officer and president, Grey, "is a priority market for the agency this year."

Grey Mumbai will handle Big CBS Prime, Big CBS Love and Big RTL Thrill.

The development is the result of a multi-agency pitch that saw the participation of several leading agencies. The process was held in Delhi.

Dip Sengupta, vice-president and branch head, Grey Delhi, says, "When we entered the fray it was for the radio business, an exciting opportunity. What makes the win sweeter is being awarded the mandate for the entire RBNL portfolio."

Commenting on the pitch process, Amit Akali, national creative director, Grey India, says, "As usual, we didn't approach the creative through traditional above the line advertising. We tried to find solutions for Big FM, whether they came through programming, slugs, on-ground activation, events or digital ideas."

In August 2010, Grey won the creative duties for Reliance Communications' GSM and CDMA services. The agency has, since, created some memorable films for the brand, including those featuring actors Anushka Sharma and Ranvijay Singh.

Also, in January, global freight company DHL appointed Grey Mumbai as the official creative agency for DHL Express India.
