But to me, gold is a very timely way to invest in monetary disorder.

Buy Silver, Not Gold, if You are a Big Time Player

A Long-Standing Love Affair Between India And Gold

India has never experienced a bear market of any consequence in gold. Since 1970 the Indian rupee has lost 88.7% of its purchasing power compared to the U.S. dollar.
