16i agree with nijerk. and the fact that he(?) loves mcleod but hates pushkar and jaisalmer for being tourist traps shows that it all boils down to personal taste, regardless of how touristy it is... although the tourists at mcleod are more tolerable than the eurotrash hippies at pushkar. i never had anything against hippies until i went to india..
if you're mostly traveling by train, then you can adapt as you go. the only time you'd need to be specific with dates is if you get a flight.

18Ps " euro trash hippies" in Pushkar? Seemed to be almost all Israelis when I was last there..

19Amritsar needs just a day or two ... if you are planning to add a visit to the Wagah Border for the ceremony that happens just before sunset everyday.
Otherwise there is just the Golden Temple and the Jalian Wala Bagh to see.
Will be worth it to squeeze in Jodhpur in your Rajasthan trip since you'll be visiting places close to that. Cut out days allotted for Jaipur and Udaipur.

You haven't mentioned Ajanta /Ellora /Hampi, which are all en-route from Mumbai => Goa. All are worth visiting. I'd put your extra time into visiting these locations. Ajanta /Ellora can be seen one day for each and Hampi at least 2 days.
GOA (9 days - don't know specific places yet)
(never been there, but from all accounts, it's very much a place you either like or you hate).
