Hey Louis,
I shot there last year, in New Delhi, it was the most chaotic place I have ever been. But all the people were great. I would bring a back up for anything that you may think may fail, I brought an extra monitor, cables, etc . . . . I always find a local op, just in case you may need something.

Have fun
