Move to America. You're allowed to get a driving license at the age of 16 in some states. By the time the paper work is cleared it'll take about a year anyways.

Other option is to bug your folks to buy you a nice gaming system with wheel, peddals, etc. (the works!) - in addition get a big screen tv to compensate for realistic visuals and a nice home theater system to compensate for realistic sound - then you can drive on the track / road every day, anywhere in the world and much better cars than the Baleno / Swift.

From what I understand you can drive legally on private roads.
But there is a good chance I might be wrong here.

You can drive on any road that is not open to the general public.

You can drive on track legally, as long as the scrutineers/organisers allow.

Can understand your urge to drive. But unfortunately there is no workaround to legal driving at under age. Anything else will be illegal driving.
if you have any connection to track people, you can take your car to the track.

underaged driving is an offense and u should not do anything illegal either.
better stick to inside roads and drive sensibly with windows rolled up.

Why not develop your skills on Go Karts and other formula cars where teenage drivers compete on track?

Should help you kill time till you turn 18.

I understand your feeling but please wait till you are at legal age.
On a private road, you can try.
Lower the age, there is more tendency towards driving fast!
As one grows older, he learns to appreciate torque rather than power & speed

YOu can legally drive on any closed circuit and private road. You can also go circuit racing at 15. So while you need to wait till you are 18 years to drive on public roads, right now, you can race in circuit events at Coimbatore and Chennai.

Another option to let some of your pent up frustration out is go-karting. Get out there and practice.

Whatever you do, please stay off public roads though.

Night driving is that much more tricky; wouldn't recommend it for inexperienced drivers. At least initially, he is better off driving during day-time on empty (I mean REALLY empty) roads for limited periods of time and always with an experienced driver present in the car.

Seriously man, I know how you feel, all of us were 15 before we turned 18. But for everyone's sake, including your own and your family, stay off public roads.
