The Indian Government want to ban Skype precisely *because* it is so
difficult to backdoor. It's really isn't trivial.

Nobody gives a toss about what you say over Skype, much like a
telephone line -- although it is significantly harder to tap a Skype
conversation. If you are still worried, please seek psychiatric help
unless you really are doing something highly illegal.

If somebody wants to eavesdrop on you and are sufficiently determined,
then they will. Regardless of your preferred VOIP client. As in "least
of your worries".
