Dr. Doe, are you AMG or IMG? Year after year statistics show a more or less 90% match rate for AMGs and a 40% match rate for IMGs (overall).

You can take a break during you internship and do 1-2 months of US rotations. I think technically you are still considered a student in India before your internship ends, so you can easily do electives as student. Thats what most of the people from India do.
