Further, you may visit beach on Day 1 evening and Day 2 morning (Sunrise).

You may proceed to Mysore from Ooty via Mudumalai and Bandipur National Park (Distance: 146 kms) and then return to Kolkata.

Mahabalipuram (around 60 kms from Chennai one way) requires one day (a rushed tour at least half day) and you may incorporate Kanchipuram to make it 198 kms (via Sriperumbudur). It will make one day circuit. You may visit there by TN Tourism Corporation bus also.
Hmm Mysore was on my list also, but time is the problem. Now I have to give 1 more day in Chennai for Mahaballipuram.

By the way, there is one direct train from Chennai to Mettupalayam which reaches around 6 am, and after 1 hour a toy train leaves for ooty from Mettupalayam .

Yes, rechecked!

There is one train, 12671 Nilgiri Express which leaves Chennai Central at 21:15 Hrs and reaches Mettupalaym at 06:15 Hrs.

If wished you may spend your day at Coonoor on the way to Ooty and reach Ooty by evening...

Two days at Ooty are enough unless you are going there to enjoy hill station. As hill station I had appreciated Coonoor more than Ooty.

In stead of coming towards Coimbatore you may go towards Mysore, spend at least half day there, night stay and in night may proceed to Bengaluru to catch your flight back to Kolkata.

There are direct bus from Mysore to Bengaluru airport also.

West Sikkim(Hilley-Barsey-Kaluk-Uttarey-Pelling-Yuksom-Ravangla-Namchi). or Himachal (Faagu-ReckongPeo-Kalpa-Sangla-nako-puh-tabo-kaza-Lahaul-Spiti) cannot decide. Any suggestions, considering October weather?

Budget are different the two option. October will be good time to visit both the places but Spiti will be cold than any other places amongst those.
