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.

Essar Oil Ltd: Breaks Out
Essar Oil is a fully integrated oil and gas company of international scale with strong presence across the hydrocarbon value chain from exploration and production to refining and oil retail.
Essar Oil said it will allot 3.88 crore equity shares at Rs.138 per share on conversion of 1,150 foreign currency convertible bonds (FCCBs) of $100,000 each aggregating to $115 million which were issued on 15 June 2010 to Essar Energy Holdings. The company will also allot 4.50 crore equity shares at Rs.153 per share on conversion of 1,470 FCCBs of $100,000 each aggregating to $147 million which were issued on 9 July 2010 to Essar Energy Holdings.
The promoter group company Essar Energy Holdings held 19.83% stake in Essar Oil (as per the shareholding pattern as on 30 September 2013).
Lalit Kumar Gupta, chief executive officer, Essar Oil Ltd, in a very recent interview with a Business Channel, says the company’s promoters are converting the Foreign Currency Convertible Bond (FCCB) in order to boost the company’s networth. Additionally, Gupta said that the company has high interest costs of Rs.3000 crore per annum, but it is likely to be reduced substantially by USD 150-200 million (Rs.15-20 crore).
