Hindi should be your choice for India.

Google's chief executive Eric Schmidt has predicted that India and not China will become the world's biggest Internet market in "about five or ten years from now, based on current trends."

And what's more, Schmidt's other futurist view is that Hindi, not Hispanic, could become one of the world's three Internet languages, in conjunction with English and Chinese.

Yeah, google stumbled in China (not entirely google's fault), so now he thinks India is the best :)

based on population, hindi is better. but Urdu is possibly more internation given its overlap with persian.

Slow down and make sure you know your markets ;-)

Hindi = India
Urdu - is widely spoken in Pakistan
