I am planning to visit Brazil for either 2014 FIFA or 2016 Olympics. Both are equally awesome from my point of view. I live in India, and am a student with minimal budget.

What is the cheapest way to travel from India to Brazil? And also the cheapest way to live there for a week's duration? Although I have some good friends in Brazil!

EDIT: I am specifically asking about the Airlines that I have available. It is my experience that a single flight in a famous airline is costlier than small distance flights from local Airlines. So, what is the most optimal flight plan I have?

@choster Sorry, I am not good at this. But I tried to make my question more specific. Not the edit! –  Cheeku Sep 24 '13 at 15:01
@Cheeku, the problem is first that you have two questions: the cheapest way to live there for one week is probably the hardest to answer, so it'd be better to just remove that part. As for the flights, we will not search flights for you, that's not the point of this site. However, we already have a question covering this topic: travel.stackexchange.com/questions/730/… –  Vince Sep 24 '13 at 15:25
okay! the link helped... –  Cheeku Sep 24 '13 at 15:38
By my own experience the only reasonable(but not cheap) route for your journey are flights of Emirates. One that goes from India to Dubai and another one from Dubai to Sao Paulo or Rio de Janeiro. This one takes around 20 hours. All other combinations requires more then one connection, are way longer and I don't think they would be less expensive. –  hooray Sep 24 '13 at 21:35
