Not in one of our horrid cities.
We breathe a highly polluted, very poor quality of air every day which is why many Bangalore people suffer respiratory problems.

Time was when I used to drive with windows open by choice. Now a days it is a strict no-no.

A convertible is great idea for dust free temperature climate; as in Europe; but some how not viable for our dusty (and polluted city) conditions. It may do as a third or fourth vehicle kept for those rare occasions when the environment and the location is just right - Nilgiris or interior Himalayas in summer.

One does get a convertible in India now, it also comes with a 4wd transfer case and a low ratio gearbox, its called the Mahindra Thar.
