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 edges higher on better retail buying
MUMBAI: Gold prices advanced further at the domestic bullion market today due to modest retail buying support as well as sustained offtake from jewellery stockists. 

Silver regained marginally after an uninterrupted five-session slump on the back of stray industrial demand. 

Standard gold of 99.5 per cent purity moved up by Rs 35 to conclude at Rs 29,800 per 10 gram from overnight closing level of Rs 29,765. 

Pure gold of 99.9 per cent purity firmed up by Rs 50 to end at Rs 29,960 per 10 gram from Rs 29,910 previously. 

Silver ready (.999 fineness) added Rs 35 to finish at Rs 49,225 per kg as compared to Friday's close of Rs 49,190. 

On the global front, the shiny metal remained under intense pressure as ongoing uncertainty over the US budget impasse continued to weigh on investors' sentiment amid lack of supportive triggers. 

Gold for December delivery fell USD 7.70 to settle at USD 1,309.90 an ounce on the Comex division of NYMEX late yesterday. Silver December contract eased to end at USD 21.75 an ounce.
