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 prices rise on brisk buying, global cues
New Delhi, Jan 24, 2014: Gold prices rose by Rs 200 to Rs 30,370 per ten grams in the national capital on Friday on brisk buying by stockists for the marriage season amid a firm global trend.
Silver prices also jumped by Rs 500 to Rs 45,000 per kg on increased offtake by jewellery fabricators and industrial units. A similar trend was noticed in Mumbai as gold of 99.9 and 99.5 per cent purity recovered Rs 125 each to Rs 30,050 and Rs 29,900 per ten gram, respectively, while silver shot up by Rs 600 to Rs 45,850 per kg.
Traders said brisk buying by stockists for the marriage season amid a firm global trend, where gold jumped to the highest close in nine weeks as the dollar plunged, boosting demand for the precious metal as an alternative investment, mainly supported the uptrend.

Shifting of funds from falling equities to rising bullion also influenced the sentiment to some extent, they said.
On the domestic front, gold of 99.9 and 99.5 per cent purity zoomed up by Rs 200 each to 30,370 and Rs 30,170 per ten grams, respectively. Sovereign remained steady at Rs 25,100 per piece of eight gram.
