I am planning a quick one week trip in India and was wondering if people could recommend from the list below one destination that I should go and see. I have already been to Chennai and Delhi before, so not interested in going there.
or is there any other places that people can recommend. I will be flying from Colombo.

I assume you've seen Agra, since it's pretty close to Delhi.
In that case, forget everything else, and go to Jaisalmir, in western Rajasthan. Of all the places I've been to in India, that's the place I loved the most.
You have a fantastic walled city with beautiful architecture, tombs out in the desert, incredible sunsets, and the people are wonderful. I really can't say enough good about the place.
The only downside is that as it's only 50 miles or so from the Pakistan border, Indian authorities do not allow civilian airliners into the city's airport (at least that was true a few years ago when I went there). So you will have to fly to Jodhpur and drive to Jaisalmir.
