Rich folks,poor tastes -Alpana Gujral

I am starting a new section with this post -a common tragic sight in the mansions of the arty-sharty minded millionaires.Among all the fancy and very expensive decors and objets d'art with which the luxury pads of these posh people are stuffed, you will almost invariably find something ugly and stupid hanging on the walls.
It's almost eerie. Rich folks are not stupid -otherwise they wouldn't be rich(or stay that way for long). But there is a competition among them to buy and show-off really bad art.

First in this series-Jewellery designer Alpana Gujral.
From the Hindustan Times-

Some of the works despoiling the walls are by her father, the ultra-famous (what for when there are many other much, much better artists struggling for years ?) painter Satish Gujral. We understand the sentiment, but hey, nepotism is no excuse for bad taste.
