Travel light is a must unless you plan to buy lots of bulky souvenirs, I did this time and it really made transfers easy. Try to sort out a discount sim package before you go. If I went to India again I may get a local sim because rates locally are far cheaper than what I got offered at home in the UK. if you do this you will need spare passport size photos. Airtel or Vodafone seem to be the best networks.
