A travel advisor says I should, but people who have been to India says otherwise. Plus, I'm the type of person bugs really like to bite.

    If you're going to known malaria regions then it probably tips the balance in the favour of taking them as a preventative.
    However, also be aware of dengue fever, also passed on by mosquitoes, but there's no preventative you can take. The only action is to cover up, use insect repellant to avoid insect bite. This also prevents you getting (the harder to get) malaria.
    Two birds (or insects) with one stone.
