Prices change frequently, so there is no substitute or advice that can beat your own research. Generally Ive found it's cheaper to fly from Europe to SEA into cities like Bangkok or Singapore, then take a flight back to India, then from India back to SEA to get a flight back to Europe.

Currently there are some great deals from Air Asia, Tiger Air, and Jet Airways offering flights from either Bangkok or Singapore to India for $60! If you are going in 2013, now is the time to be booking.

As far as a route around SEA I don't think there is any one way that is better than another. Factors that have to be considered are time of year for weather patterns and temps, and visas which sometimes have to be pre purchased and are then on time restraints. Other than that, it's pretty easy going to and from any of those countries by any means of transport. I like to leave it open, so if I meet people on my trip I'm free to go with them.
