As you said the poem "The Indian Serenade" is a love poem written by Percy Bysshe Shelley, a romantic poet from England (he died in Italy but was born in England). He might have written this song "Lines to an Indian air" as he was attracted by an Indian air or he had a liking towards it. There is no harm in a person living in England or Italy to like India. Shelly, might be a person who has traveled a lot and he would have liked India for some reason.

Dear Chitra Ma'am,
Of course, he might have composed this song because his attraction or liking towards India. And it is also clear that there is no harm in loving any countries living in a particular place. Apart from these, there might have other reasons for doing that job. Let's see what other Experts say.

There might be other reasons, but as he has not written an autobiography, it is hard to find out.
