    Yes. India has 240 volts. You will need a transformer (probably best
    bought in India) that converts 240 to 120 volts and can handle 200 watts.
    That will not be cheap. Better yet, check with the vendor and see if they
    can supply a 240-volt version of their product. Or, if their product
    contains nothing but heating elements, a cheaper rectifier-type converter
    might work; they should be able to advise.

    Looking at it -- it's apparently just a heating pad, and the cheaper type of
    converter (the kind that is for "lights, heating elements, and resistive
    loads") should work.

    But can't you buy heating pads in India? Or buy a British one?

    The Standard product is 14" x 27". Why not buy two Medium products
    (14" x 14") and wire them in series?

    It'll cost you $120 instead of $75, but that should be cheaper than a
    200VA transformer.
