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.

Suzlon launches new offshore turbine
[Editor: I have started to feel slightly BULLISH again on SUZLON ENERGY LTD (Rs.9.37). Therefore die-hard fans of Suzlon Energy Ltd, who have bought this scrip can put a SL of Rs.4.80 and keep adding on declines. The next targets for the scrip  are Rs.14, Rs.19 and Rs.26. Once the scrip closes above Rs.28, we can look for targets of Rs.32-33. The long term targets for the scrip are: Rs.57, Rs.89 and Rs.141. Meanwhile,  Suzlon Energy Ltd had allotted over 18.47 crore shares of face value of Rs.2 each upon conversion of 203 compulsorily convertible debentures (CCDs) of face value of Rs.1 crore each, to its promoters. This somewhat gives some respite to the working capital requirements, according to the terms of the corporate debt restructuring package. These shares, totalling over 9.37 crore, have a lock-in-period of one year]
20 November 2013: Suzlon Group is introducing its new offshore turbine, the Repower 6.2M152, at EWEA OFFSHORE 2013.

The new turbine features a rotor diameter of 152 m, with the rotors sweeping an area larger than three football pitches. The nacelle alone is as big as two detached houses and will be constructed offshore at a height of between 95 and 110 m.

The larger rotor diameter, when compared to the a previous product, the REpower 6.2M126 (126 m), achieves an increase in energy yield by up to 20 per cent at wind speeds of 9.5 m/s. With a rated power of 6.15 megawatts, each REpower 6.2M152 turbine can supply around 4,000 homes with electricity. 

“We are the only manufacturer to have already installed more than 100 offshore turbines in the multi-megawatt class,” said Andreas Nauen, CEO of Suzlon subsidiary Repower Systems SE. “With an eye on the outstanding availability and energy yield of the REpower 6.2M126, we have enhanced this robust, proven concept: the bigger rotor and correspondingly larger drive train of Repower 6.2M152 combined with tried-and-tested, first-class technology enables our customers to generate energy even more cost-efficiently on the high seas.”

Repower has already sold a prototype REpower 6.2M152. Together with the customer, it has been agreed to construct the prototype with a hub height of 124 m at an onshore site in northern Germany, with construction scheduled for completion by the end of 2014. From 2015, REpower 6.2M152 will enter commercial production.
