Here on the West Coast of Canada or as we affectionately call it, The Wet Coast, India is one of the hardest countries to hear - largely because it is the farthest away - literally on the opposite side of the planet. In the "old days" as in the 1970's I could hope to hear India on my DX150B once at the equinoxes - nowadays, with better receiving gear and arguably better signals from the source, it is somewhat easier - in fact, at any given day of the year at sunrise or sunset it is possible to hear India... conditions being reasonably favourable that is. Here is an example of good conditions from the Point no Point cabins near Jordan River on Vancouver Island.
