Is $1000 enough?

Is $1000 Canadian enough to travel India or 1 month, Thailand for 2 weeks and Nepal for 2 weeks?

Plane tickets are already taken care of.

That would be one thin, one very thin, shoestring . . . I want to say "Yes" . . . really badly, because it is possible . . . but "No" is blocking the way . . .

In short, that would be reeeeeeeeeeeally tight

I wonder if $1500 for 1 month in India and 1 week in Nepal and 1 week in Goa would give me some decent breathing room.

Start with $1500 Canadian: Do 1 month India excluding Goa, and 1 week in Goa. You may have a little bit left over. Then, recompute to determine how much additional amount is needed to do Thailand/Nepal.

India is hard to compute due to high inflation!

I've seen your itinerary in other threads and you're going to mostly big cities, so it will be tough going to do just India for one month with $1000. In the more rural areas you can get by for about 1/3 of what you'll spend in the cities. For example, 3 nights/4 days in Hampi with scooter rental, a few beers, food and admissions cost me Rs 2000, which is about the same cost as a day in Mumbai.
