Two friends and I are planning a three week trip in India. Being such an intimidatingly large country with amazing sites, we're not sure we've got a decent enough plan. We're hoping for a "best of" trip. Tentatively this is what we've got:

Jan 14: Fly into Mumbai
Jan 15: Mumbai
Jan 16: Mumbai:
Jan 17: Morning flight to Udaipur
Jan 18: Udaipur, night train to Jaipur
Jan 19: Jaipur
Jan 20: Jaipur, night train to Jaisalmer
Jan 21: Jaisalmer
Jan 22: Jaisalmer
Jan 23: Jaisalmer, night train to Jodhpur
Jan 24: Jodhpur
Jan 25: Jodhpur, night train to Agra
Jan 26: Agra
Jan 27: Agra, night train to Varanasi
Jan 28: Varanasi
Jan 29: Varanasi
Jan 30: Varanasi
Jan 31: Varanasi, night train to Delhi
Feb 1: Delhi
Feb 2: Delhi
Feb 3: Delhi
Feb 4: Morning flight home...

Does this seem decent? Are we spending too much time in any places? Or too little time in others? Specifically, we've heard that Udaipur lake may be dry during non-monsoon season, is this true? Is it worth going to otherwise? Should we delete some places and add others?

Then, somewhat unrelated, we're keen to do an overnight stay in an ashram/temple. Are there any, particularly along our route, that people would recommend?

Any help would be much appreciated!!! Thanks in advance

EDIT: I apologize in advance if I've repeated an otherwise answered itinerary question. This website is massive, and I've been struggling a bit...

A more logical route would be Mumbai - Udaipur - Jaisalmer - Jodhpur - Jaipur - Agra - Varanasi - Delhi. Udaipur - Jaisalmer by bus, the others by trains. A day and half in Udaipur seems less.
Udaipur lake does become dry when it does not get sufficient rain during monsoons. This year Udaipur received more than sufficient rainfall during the monsoon, so you will find water in both the lakes during January.
