It is a good idea that you have planned to visit South India.
From Columbo you can reach south indian cities--Chennai, Trivandrum Tiruchy, Cochin only by air. Unfortunately there are no boats operating between these two countries presently.

are welcome to get in touch with me.. I shall provide possible help.

No boat service between Sri Lanka and India? That's shocking. Why not?

I'm afraid I can't give any advice, then, because I made the reverse journey (Bombay - Goa - Kerala - Sri Lanka) back in the 1970s. Obviously much has changed. It's all fascinating as long as you have your health.
