I'm going to be in china for the next few months (leaving in feb) and I want to visit a friend in India while I'm there. I'm on a tightish budget, what is the most effective way of getting to India from China (I'll be in Sichuan province)?

If you are not in too great a hurry, the cheapest option may be Air Asia from Chengdu to KL, then one of the budget Indian carriers (there are about five that I recall) to your subcontinental airport of choice. That appeared to shave about $100 off the almost certainly more convenient Cathay Pacific route I was offered when I searched a moment ago, although not having to spend eighteen or nineteen hours in transit is worth at least $100 to me nowadays (I'm old). But you ought to check fares from China--I expect you might find other cheap options, and cheaper CTU-KUL tickets.
