Denmark actually had some small colonies, nothing but trading posts really, in India. Like France had Podincherry and Portugal had Goa.
The colonies were never a success and failed to bring the revenue dreamed of when they were founded. For many years they were neglected and became infamous for piracy. The Danish colonies in India were sold to the British in 1845.
