(New Delhi) “If you are a single girl from the North-East living on your own, you can expect to have problems with housing. There is discrimination at several levels. People are hesitant to show you the house because they are not interested in you as a tenant. They also ask you a hundred questions. These are personal and nosey questions such as: Who will visit you? How long will you stay out? Will you be back home by 10 pm? It is none of their business. After finding a place to live, you can only hope that you don’t have to go house hunting in the near future.”
