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 seen extending gains from two-week high
(Reuters) - Gold futures in India, which hit the highest level in two weeks on Friday, could extend gains on a weak dollar ahead of further monetary easing in the United States.

Weak U.S. growth data has raised expectations the Federal Reserve will keep its bond buying at $85 billion a month, while the European Central Bank is widely expected to announce an interest rate cut when it meets on Thursday.

Accommodative policy is supportive for gold as printing of money tends to be inflationary.

"Overall gold will remain on the upside on loose monetary policy stance by the U.S.," said Sumit Mukherjee, an analyst at Karvy Comtrade.

The actively traded gold for June delivery was 0.17 percent lower at 27,144 rupees per 10 gram on the Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX), after hitting a high of 27,447 rupees on Friday, a level seen on April 15.

Gold may trade in a range of 26,300-27,800 rupees, said Mukherjee.

However, lower physical demand from India after the buying frenzy following a 20 percent drop in prices from the peak, could limit the upside in prices. India will celebrate Akshaya Tritiya next month, while weddings will continue till June-July.

Silver for May delivery was 0.17 percent higher at 45,118 rupees per kg on the MCX.

Silver may trade in a range of 43,400-48,000, said Mukherjee.
