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.

Made in Foreign
One of the chief slogans of Narendra Modi's government has been "Made in India". Under
this 'strategic partnership' model, select private firms were supposed to build militarly platforms like fighter jets, submarines and battle tanks in collaboration with foreign defence majors.

But hereto what we got on the plate is altogether a different preparation or we are till now witnessing " Made in Foreign Campaigns", at the cost of foreign exchange and BOP. Earlier, there were murmurs (Rumors) that these multi-billion dollar contracts generate high kickbacks. A visibly honest defence minister has been sent back to his home state, Goa. Who will be the new full time defense minister is anybody's guess.

According to a recent news report, Fifty-eight contracts involving Rs.1.21 lakh crore were signed by the government with foreign defence firms in the last three fiscals for procuring aircraft, helicopters and weapons systems for the armed forces.

Is the government really interested in "Made in India", story, when the defense sector is concerned? Or it is just another of those infamous "Jumlas" of Narendra Modi - Amit Shah combination ?
