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.

Mr.Finance Minister: Blame it on Gold imports
A significant factor that aided the narrowing of CAD is the economic slowdown in the country. Contraction in demand for goods and services meant under-utilisation of existing capacities.

Contraction in import of these five items translated into savings of $10.5 billion in foreign exchange outflow – almost three-quarters as much as savings on gold imports.

It must be pointed out that revival of exports, growing at a modest 5.5%, also eased some pressures on the trade deficit, making CAD look prettier.

However, the narrowing of CAD can get reversed if businesses start investing again and consumer demand rejuvenates in the next few months even if much of the curbs on gold imports stay
