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, silver surge on strong global cues
The prices of both the precious metals, gold and silver, jumped in the national capital on Thursday on frantic buying by stockists triggered by a rally in overseas markets.
While gold zoomed up by Rs. 410 to Rs. 30,810 per 10 gram, silver jumped up by Rs. 990 to Rs. 51,200 per kg on increased off-take by stockists on the back of firm global trend.
Sentiment turned bullish after gold jumped the most in 15 months in overseas markets after the Federal Reserve unexpectedly refrained from reducing the pace of monthly US bond purchases, increasing demand for the metal as a store of value, traders said.
Gold in New York, which normally set price trend on the domestic front, shot up by USD 55.30 to USD 1360.30 an ounce and silver by 5.64 per cent to USD 23.04 an ounce.
Meanwhile, hike in import duty raised fears of restricted arrivals and further influenced the market sentiment, they said.
On the domestic front, gold of 99.9 and 99.5 per cent purity zoomed up by Rs. 410 to Rs. 30,810 and Rs. 30,610 per 10 gram, respectively. It had gained Rs. 300 in the previous session. Sovereign followed suit and rose by Rs. 100 to Rs. 25,100 per piece of eight gram.
In a similar fashion, silver ready rallied by R.s 990 to Rs. 51,200 per kg and weekly-based delivery by Rs. 1,140 to Rs. 51,200 per kg. The white metal had gained Rs. 680 on Tuesday’s trade.
Silver coins spurted by Rs. 1,000 to Rs. 85,000 for buying and Rs. 86,000 for selling of 100 pieces.
