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.

DO YOU KNOW?
The total area sown under Soya-bean Crop, is likely to be 100-110 lakh hectares this Kharif season, almost similar to last year. Also the crop yield might be normal and satisfactory in states like Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra, unlike what was expected earlier.

The Soya-crop, which accounts for more than a third of India's oil-seed production, had earlier come under stress after rainfall deficiency of as much as 54% in central India and 60% in the southern peninsula in the first half of July. 

However, off-late several places in Central and Northeast India have recorded good rainfall, especially during the last fortnight. In fact earlier this month, Yavatmal, Wardha, Buldhana, Akola and Amravati in Maharashtra, witnessed record breaking rain which raised the hopes for Soya Oil industry. Moreover, this spell of rain has come as a huge relief to the people of Vidarbha region who were witnessing deficient rain.

Meanwhile,  according to media reports, in Rajasthan, the area under soybean is likely to touch 10 lakh hectares, helped by late rains including recent rains and available irrigation facility. The crop is reported to be quite satisfactory. 

It is worth mentioning here that July and August are the peak Monsoon months for most parts of the country. The average monthly rainfall amounts are also very high. And though it is expected that all the regions receive good rain during this period, the distribution of rain is still uneven. 

Some places record very heavy rain and observe a monthly surplus, while the others witness less rain and are deficient. 

The Market Watch writes on August 7, 2015: 
While the weather bulls had driven soybeans to rally by $1.40 per bushel from mid June to mid July, reduced yields that many expected may not be coming to pass. While beans have since retraced some of their July gains, we feel the clock is running out for bean bulls and that further upside will be limited. This sets up a potential opportunity for short-sellers as harvest approaches in September.
