The guitar which u'll buy will depend on the type of music u like... I don't have much knowledge abt guitars as I hve not played more than a few brands... If ever Jayanth sees this post he might share his knowledge...
Anyways, for most Indians who are not sure if they'll continue playing guitar for more than a few years, I would recommend a Givson GS 1000... its cheap tho very bad quality... But with the right processors and strings you can get a great sound out of it.
For heavy metal music... I'd recommend Ibanez... For rock and esp finger picking and stuff, Fender is better... Yamaha is good as well.

Filled with anger aflamed our hearts
Full of hate full of pride...
Oh, we screamed for revenge
