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.

Global steel output fell 2.9 pc in Jan, India bucks trend
[Editor: This is a positive news for India, and especially those who are holding the steel counters. Meanwhile, the government is likely to come up with measures in the budget-2015-16, to protect the domestic steel sector. In such circumstances, stay put in steel and mining spaces]
Feb 20, 2015: NEW DELHI: Global steel production declined by 2.9 per cent in January largely due to 4.7 per cent drop in Chinese output even as Russia, the US and India contributed more among major producing nations.
Global steel production declined to 133.10 million tonnes (MT) in January from 137.09 MT a year earlier, data compiled by World Steel Association (WSA) showed.
Even as output in China fell to 65.5 MT from 68.7 MT a year ago, its contribution remained nearly half of the global production during the month.
