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.

Demand from India can push gold prices higherEmkay
26 September, 2013: U.S. Comex gold futures for October delivery settled up at USD 1,335.9 an ounce. Gold prices rose as uncertainty over US budget talks boosted gold's safe haven appeal. 

Fears of a government shutdown escalated as disagreement amongst lawmakers continued over funding Obama healthcare program as a condition to raise the debt ceiling.

The IMF report showing 8 central banks added to their gold reserves also supported gold prices. The U.S. Treasury Secretary has warned theCongress of running out of funds and defaulting on its payments if no action is taken before October 17.
Commenting on the gold outlook, Emkay Commodity Research said, ''Indian customs cleared imported gold lying at the airports which could restart imports soon from India. Gold prices are expected to move up as uncertainty regarding US fiscal issue and a pickup in demand from India can push prices higher.''
