Indian Customs: Indian dressing codes are different from western ones. Generally women cover their shoulders and legs. Please make sure you adapt to the culture.
Health: To avoid digestion problems upon arrival, I recommend neem pills before each meal. Neem is a local tree. Its leaves have numerous natural anti-bacterial properties. Please let me know in the registration form if you would like to buy Neem pills, about 200 rupees. Regarding Malaria, you do not need Malaria treatment. Simply take a good mosquito repellent.
