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.

Fire breaks in Kingfisher Airlines godown in Bangalore
At last some good news for the shareholders of Kingfisher Airlines Ltd (CMP: Rs.7.61)
New Delhi: An accidental fire broke out in a Kingfisher Airlines godown at Kannamangala village near Bangalore International Airport on late Friday morning. According to preliminary reports there were no casualties reported in the incident.

The fire broke around 11.20 am in the godown where airplane spare parts worth crores (1 Crore= 10 million) of rupees were stored and almost all the materials have been reportedly gutted in the fire.

The people who noticed smoke emanating from the godown alerted the fire and emergency services and immediately around three fire tenders were rushed to the spot to douse the fire. When the fire officials realised the fire had spread the entire godown, they rushed more vehicles to the spot. The fire came under control only after 2.30 pm and the officials are still at the spot.

By preliminary investigation police said, there were no sufficient fire safety measures in the godown.

Police said, there were some employees in the godown, but none of them sustained any injuries. However, the exact cause for the fire is yet to be ascertained as the officials suspect it would be a fire due to short circuit in the electrical connections inside the godown building. There was a panic for more than three hours at the spot till the fire came under control.

The International Airport police who are at the spot said they were yet to receive any complaint in writing. "Only when the case is registered we would be able to tell the exact value of the total materials gutted in the fire," said a police official.
