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.

Sensex falls over 500 points; Nifty slips below 8250 as oil dips below $50/bbl
NEW DELHI, 6 Jan, 2015: The S&P BSE Sensex plunged as much as 512 points in trade on Tuesday following Asian markets, which were trading lower as investors are starting to worry that the prolonged slump is signaling a weaker global economy.
"That fear shook financial markets Monday as oil plunged again, dipping below $50 for the first time in more than five years. The drop prompted a big sell-off, not just among energy stocks, but across the entire stock market," AP reported.
Tracking the momentum, the 50-share Nifty index also cracked over 100 points to slip below its crucial psychological level of 8250, weighed down by losses in auto, banks, capital goods and IT stocks.
At 09:20 a.m.; the 30-share index was trading at 27,426.62, down 416 points or 1.49 per cent. It touched a high of 27698.93 and a low of 27,330.47 in trade today.
The Nifty was at 8259 down 119 points or 1.4 per cent. It touched a high of 8327.85 and a low of 8229.35 in trade today.
The S&P BSE Midcap Index was down 1.3 per cent and BSE S&P Smallcap Index edged lower by 1.1 per cent.
NTPC (up 0.2 per cent) and HUL (up 0.05 per cent) were among the major Sensex gainers.
Tata Motors (down 3.3 per cent), Sesa Sterlite (down 2.1 per cent), ONGC (down 2.2 per cent), Tata Power (down 1.9 per cent) and Infosys (down 1.8 per cent) were the major index losers.
