Anyone traveled to India (or Africa) with nine month olds? Any advice?

I am from India. My grandmother (only surviving grandparent) is old and I would like her to meet my twins before it is too late. I am delaying the trip (my twins are now seven months old) as long as I can. But I know we will visit her by the time the boys are nine months old (for various reasons).

Now here is where I will need some backing up to gather strength from those who have traveled to India (or any other country that's mosquito-ridden and exposed to malaria, dengue etc.). They cannot take any prophylactic for these diseases until they're two years old and that will be too late for us to visit. Have you traveled to such countries? How old was your baby? What did you do to make sure that your baby was safe? Please share your stories... thanks!
