Yes, an area of rich potential, although you wouldn't be the first author to explore it. Jan Lars Jensen produced a dazzling novel set in India with Shiva 3000
(1999), Ian McDonald has written a series of excellent stories set in a wonderfully-realised future India, most notably the Hugo shortlisted novel River of Gods
(2004), and there have undoubtedly been others, but it's an area that is certainly far from exhausted.
