I'm thinking

Trade between the United States and India totaled only $33 billion in the first eight months of 2010, dwarfed by the $296 billion in U.S.-China trade, which is skewed heavily toward Chinese exports. More 200 U.S. companies will attend a meeting of business leaders in Mumbai as part of the trade push and major contract announcements are expected during the visit.
The United States and India also want to deepen their security and counter-terrorism relationships. Obama's first stop on the trip will be a memorial to the 2008 attack on the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai, where Obama will stay.

Obama's time in Seoul on November 11-12 will be dominated by the G20 summit, but he will also hold a bilateral meeting with South Korean President Lee Myung-bak, a close ally.
Experts will look for the United States to leave the summit with at least some expressions of support from other leaders on the Chinese currency. Obama has called on China to allow appreciation of its yuan currency, which U.S. officials say is kept artificially low, hurting U.S. jobs and competitiveness.

So 200 million a day when we have a 1.29 trillion dollar deficit. He needs 3000 people and 40 aircrafts? You support that? Fine, glad to know where you stand.

You're article doesn't breakdown who pays for what or even who is actually traveling with him:

"The huge amount of around $200 million would be spent on security, stay and other aspects of the Presidential visit," a top official of the Maharashtra Government privy to the arrangements for the high-profile visit said.

About 3,000 people including Secret Service agents, US government officials and journalists would accompany the President. Several officials from the White House and US security agencies are already here for the past one week with helicopters, a ship and high-end security instruments.
