Skype subscriptions? Only you need Skype at your end. The other person can be called on his regular mobile number. Its not too cheap for India - 13.5 hours a month costs me about 800 rupees, and I suspect UAE will probably be even higher. But its much cheaper than international calls.
Skype can only be used to call mobiles in the following countries:

the cheapest method i've found is to not use one of the main phone carriers, go with one of the other carriers.
From UK to India
Lyca (Pay as you go), (prices may change) 1p a minute landline, 1p a minute Cell/Mobile, 12p Text/SMS
Lebara (Pay as you go), (prices may change) 2p a minute landline, 2p a minute cell/mobile, 15p Text/SMS.
you can also find 'phone cards' sold all over the place, £1 and £5 cards usually work out the best, you may be charged by your phone comany for a local call cost, you'll get about an hour or more on the cards. only problem with these is they cut the calls a lot.
occasionally, Lyca do a deal where if someone else in another country has a Lyca sim, you can call them free. you can always (may change) call anyone in the same country for free who is on the same sim.
