Just got back from India... It should be a fantastic trip!
In the bigger City's (Bombay, Delhi, etc.), you shouldn't have TOO much of a problem finding Shimano parts... The bigger cities have parts that are fairly westernized and have many of the same amenities you'd expect in N.A. However, in the countryside, you are screwed. The good part is that if you do run into any serious trouble, you can pretty much hire a Jeep (complete with driver) from anywhere in India to anywhere in India fairly cheaply.
A good friend of mine has been living in India for the past 6 months... I'll ask him for advice and get back to you.
Enjoy your first foray into Indian traffic... I would strongly suggest you try to get one of those air horns for your bike with an EXTREMELY large air supply
