Just one question: is there a collector`s market for ODM in India/Pakistan ???

Yes, very much. But only a few collectors (South Asian or foreign) can contend with the ever-rising prices and shrinking supplies. A standard ECON 101 scenario. Many items are now cheaper and easier to find in London, at London prices, than in New Delhi. Yet the best items still stay in India (and, I presume, Pakistan, though the market there is less well developed).
