My request is to help me in putting them in order i.e.from Delhi where should I first land and then how to go on to other places in chronological order. Also please suggest which mode of travel will be economical and how to book tickets for that mode and from which city I should depart to Delhi. I am troubling you a lot but i am sure you will guide me properly so that I can do my bookings now itself and save money.

I assume you are an Indian citizen? First, you need to investigate visas. You will need a United Kingdom visa to visit London and a Schengen visa to visit the other countries. It is best to get your Schengen visa from the first Schengen country you enter (I suggest France ).

Official UK visa information: 

https://www.gov.uk/check-uk-visa

Information about Schengen visa:

http://www.vfs-france.co.in/scheduleanappointment.html

You can use train, long-distance buses or budget airlines to get from place to place.

For all flights look at www.skyscanner.net  Book as far ahead as possible (there are no last-minute cheap flights) and make absolutely sure you stick to the baggage limits.

For train times and details throughout Europe look at:

https://www.bahn.com/en/view/index.shtml

Trains in Europe can be, and often are, faster than flying. 

If you decide to make most journeys by train you may find that a Eurail pass is worthwhile. Use only the official site:

https://www.eurail.com/en

For long-distance buses look at

http://www.eurolines.com/en/

I suggest you fly into and out of London and take the following route:

1. London to Paris (under-Channel Eurostar train):

https://www.eurostar.com

Alternatively, you could fly into and out of Paris and make your trip to London using the Eurostar train. You will still need a UK visa.

2. Paris to Venice (flight is fastest).

3. Venice to Rome (high-speed train: http://www.trenitalia.com/tcom-en or https://www.italotreno.it/en )

4. Rome to Interlaken (train or fly to Bern and then train)

5. Interlaken to Prague (train or train + fly from Bern, Basel or Zurich)

7. Prague to Berlin (train or fly).

8. Berlin to Amsterdam (train or fly)

9. Amsterdam to Paris (train...but did you really want to visit twice???) or London (Eurostar or fly).

Official Dutch railway website:

https://www.nsinternational.nl/en

10. If you want to add in Madrid and Barcelona, you can fly to either city from Amsterdam, Paris or London.  Then take the train between the two cities. Official Spanish railway website:

Hope that helps a bit. :-)
