I remember there was a Store exclusive ink sold on Massdrop.

 

You can try that storage box shipping thing. Where the store will ship the item to a company in JP then you pay the company to ship it to your location. As it seems like some stationary story stores refuses to ship ink or pens out side of Japan.

the only store exclusive inks that are available in the US are Bungbox and Nagasawa by courtesy of Vanness Pens but these 2 shops are capable of shipping overseas,
hear say White Rabbit Express helps but I do not know if they ship to India... :X if you got a credit card maybe it can help

You can use a Japanese shopping service that will buy the item for you and then ship it to you.

 

I've used personalshopperj.com with good results.

Shopping services, eBay, a few (very few) Japanese pen/ink shows will ship world wide. Having a friend or relatives in Japan also helps immensely.
