You seem to have misunderstood what's meant by "Debian is Free Software".
http://www.debian.org/intro/free and http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html
tell what "free" means. A CD costs money and postage costs money. Nobody is
obliged to send you one for free. You can order a Debian CD in India from 
http://www.gtcdrom.com/Debian-GNULinux.html. Rs. 700/- (about $15) is a bit 
expensive so you may want to contact your local Linux user group (See
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ilug-bbsr/ for one in Orissa) to burn/lend one
for you. If you are in Bangalore and can drop in to my office I'll give them
to you "free of cost" :-). I am sure some one in your local Linux user group
will be more than happy to do the same thing.
