Hello everyone,
I am taking a tour of Rajasthan ending on Feb 24 in New Delhi, my first time in India. I have unscheduled time until Mar 10 when I need to fly to Bangkok. I would very much appreciate any suggestions. My wife and I are in our late 50s, and we can afford air travel.

I would also like to spend Holi in Varanasi, so my first thought was something like Delhi -> Lucknow -> Varanasi -> Calcutta. We like slower travel, so spending 3-4 days in a place is not out of the ordinary. Having said that, I am not committed to this plan and interested in any suggestions.

Your thoughts would be very much appreciated.

Delhi - Jhansi (Orchha) / Khajuraho - Varanai - Calcutta could be an option.

Since we had visited Varanasi several times, we decided to go to some lesser known towns around it during our last trip.
After Lucknow we visited Jaunpur, Mirzapur, Sasaram and Gaya.
Details you can read in the end October part of the 2014 journal in my signature.

Holi inVaranasi is great fun if a little messy !!! Remember to wear or buy some clothes you can through away after.
Over the years I have taken a number of trains along the same route and all of them have been very late departing/arriving.This could just be bad luck or a the norm.But you seem to have enough time for it not to be too much of a problem.
Happy travels Simon.
