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.

Gold prices maintained an upward trend
Those who bought the shares of Manappuram Finance Ltd (BSE Code: 531213, CMP: Rs.17.70) with me, say Cheers!!
Gold prices maintained an upward trend for the fifth-straight day by adding Rs 400 to regain the psychological level of Rs 28,000 per ten grams in the national capital Thursday on strong demand from stockists and traders coupled with marriage season off-take from consumers amid a firming global trend.

Silver also recovered by Rs 500 to Rs 45,500 per kg on increased offtake by industrial units and coin makers.

Meanwhile, gold prices continued their upward momentum in futures trade today and rallied by over Rs 650 points to regain Rs 27,000-level as speculators enlarged their positions tracking a firm global trend.

Silver also regained Rs 45,000-level in futures trade.

At the Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX), metal for delivery in June contracts climbed by Rs 653 to Rs 27,041 per ten grams.

In another benchmark spot market, Mumbai, gold reclaimed Rs 27,000 per ten grams level on continued physical buying.

Silver also soared on low-level speculative buying and industrial demand, and regained the Rs 45,000 per kg mark.

Gold in overseas markets, which normally set price trend on the domestic front, climbed to the highest level since September last year, as rising central bank and physical purchases countered tumbling assets in exchange-traded products.
