Also in the economic times, I read the headline yesterday that investor wealth jumped by something like 18K crore due to the current boom in the market - obviously we indians have a lot of disposable money now and so we have a unique problem - where do we wisely invest our money? Thus avenues such as art start appearing as investment options. Is this good or bad? Only time will tell.
