Indian Art Scenario
  Harsh Goenka  
  Indian art market is now stable and somewhat rational and even competes with other forms of financial investment options for investors. There is good quality and there are discerning buyers. Indian market will keep growing as more and more people turn to art either to collect or to invest. It is a promising place to be in.
