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.

Thiruvananthapuram, 23rd July 2014: Kochi-based Kerala Blasters Football Club did brisk business on day one of the central domestic player draft for Hero Indian Super League at Mumbai on Tuesday signing seven players, including Indian internationals Mehtab Hossain and Nirmal Chhetri.

Assistant coach Trevor Morgan was the kingpin for the Blasters and it showed with four out of seven players - Mehtab, Chhetri, Gurwinder Singh and Sushanth Mathew - drafted into the ISL team having played football for East Bengal FC when Morgan was the head coach there.
Mehtab Hossain, Nirmal Chhetri, Godwin Franco, Gurwinder Singh, Ishfaq Ahmed, Sushanth Mathew  and Sandesh Jhingan
Mehtab was reportedly the highest valued Indian at Rs 35 lakh in the draft while 23-year-old Chhetri has already won nine caps for India. Ishfaq Ahmed, Sandesh Jhingan and Godwin Franco completed the line up for the club owned by Sachin Tendulkar and Prasad V Potluri.

Blasters signed Sushanth in round six, their only acquisition of a Kerala player on day one, but missed out on another in Mohammed Rafi who was picked by Atletico de Kolkata, co-owned by Sourav Ganguly. Four more Kerala players will come up for grabs on the final day of draft on Wednesday.

Blasters secured the signature of highly- experienced winger Ishfaq Ahmed, who played for Mohammed Sporting SC last season. Jhingan, a young centre back, was a player for Mumbai FC in I-League.

28-year-old defender Franco, along with his soon-to-be teammate Chhetri, were called up for trials with German second division side Fortuna Dusseldorf last December.  Having already secured a winger and three defenders and midfielders each, Blasters are expected to try to bolster their striking department as well sign a goalkeeper in the remaining seven rounds on day two.

Apart from Morgan, Rajeev Kamineni, executive director of PVP Ventures, William D’Silva and Soli K Colah, managers of the team, represented Blasters at the draft.

Team owners Tendulkar and Potluri stayed away from the draft on Tuesday, but the latter is expected to attend on day two.
