I'm an Indian who lives in India and I'm NOT a travel agent. I can specifically tell you what precautions you should take while travelling in India. for example, In Gujarat State of India, Liquor is prohibited except a very few licenced hotels. In Goa recently 2 teenagers were raped and police hasn't got anyone convicted. In many places, people pose as 'guides' but instead they drug and loot the travellers. There are laws that prohibit kissing and hugging in public places between opposite sexes. In many places, shopkeeper and hotel people charge double money to Foreigners (you see 1$ = 50 Rs. so when guy says 4$ for something you'll think wow its cheap but in reality he sells the same thing for 50 cents to a native Indian person and cheats you cause you don't know the real price.) The Kasmir and some north Indian states, and in Eastern states of india suffer from terrorism, maoist rebels and seperatist insurgents. If you wander around in hostile places you might get in run in to Trouble. as I said ago, I'm not a travel agent, all I can tell you is how you should behave and what precautions you should take while travelling in India.
