If you are travellin to India the best thing to do would be to use this or similar websites to establish contacts with people at places where you want to visit.Im not referring to professional travel agencies but you will find lot of people who do this jus out of interest without taking any money from you.
Im from south india and im an IT professional,if u require any help in this part of please feel free to drop a mail on -snip-
