Hi Hardik, and welcome to MySwissAlps,
How nice to spend your honeymoon in Switzerland. Overall your plan looks good. A few suggestions from my side:
Day 2: it does not require a full day. I would suggest to stay in one of the smaller villages, like Wengen or Grindelwald. Read here how to travel to the Jungfraujoch. When planning the trip, the ideal thing is to check the weather forecast 24-48 hours beforehand, then on the day you want to go up, check the webcam for visibility at the top before buying a ticket. Read here more about the Jungfrau region and what activities to do.
Day 3: this looks fine. You might be interested in the 'Classic Round Trip' or the 'Majestic Round Trip' which are described on this page.
Day 4: you could do it in less than a day. On the web page about Lucerne we've suggested more activities. Some people do Mt. Titlis and Mt. Pilatus in one day, however, I would suggest to use the Swiss timetable to plan your trip to see if it fits your travel preferences.
Day 5: have a look at the page things to do in Zurich. Zurich won't be the highlight of your honeymoon. We often recommend to skip it when you only have a few days in Switzerland. Up to you.
If you could add one day I would explore one more destination: Zermatt. Should you go for this option, you'll have to change your itinerary slightly. It would then look something like this:
Day 1: Paris to Lucerne
Day 2 + 3: Lucerne
Day 4: Grindelwald / Wengen
Day 5: Golden Pass to Zermatt
Day 6: Zermatt to Zurich
Day 7: Flight to India
If you include Zermatt in your trip the Swiss Travel Pass for 4 days is probably your best option, combined with a Swiss Transfer Ticket which you'll use to cover your trips from Basel to Lucerne and Zermatt to Zurich. But to be sure you will need to check the prices of all your planned train, bus, gondola, boat tickets (you plan to take) and do the math to compare prices. We have a page here on how to choose the best rail pass that has a spreadsheet to help you.
You will be able to order vegetarian dishes in restaurants. If you use the search box at the top of the page, you'll be able to find some threads that discuss this topic.
