Any HDMI Cable will work just make sure you get one that works with your graphics card because you get mini HDMI and Full size HDMI. Using a TV as a monitor is a bad idea but its better than nothing. If you TV is a plasma it will ruin it if its LED or LCD then its fine.

no, it's no problem to use the tv as monitor. for under 10 meters any hdmi cable will do.

Just find one at a local store? India is very big and no point telling you to buy a cheaper one if it's going to be miles away.

There are others, but these sell the best
Using your TV as a monitor would not cause it anymore damage then using it as a TV.
