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.

Manappuram moves to new corporate office
Kochi, Aug. 23:  Manappuram Finance, one of the leading gold-loan companies in the country, has a new corporate office.

On Friday, Maharashtra Governor K. Sankaranaryanan, formally opened the new corporate office at Valapad in Thrissur district. He noted that just because the value of the rupee has gone down recently the Indian economy would not collapse as some doomsday predictions had made out to be.
He recalled that while hundreds of banks in the US and Europe had folded up in the wake of the global economic slowdown, none of the banks in India had closed, signalling the strength of the country’s banking system as well as of the economy.

V.P. Nandakumar, managing director and chief executive officer of the company, recalled that Manappuram Finance had its humble beginnings at the village of Valapad.
