India is in a bear market

The rupee is down nearly 50% in the last three years. Stock markets are down only 12% to 15% from their peak in rupee terms. Thus, in dollar terms, India is in a bear market as it has fallen nearly 60%. But I don't think the Indian stock markets will fall to that extent in rupee terms.
