I am visiting during the first 2 weeks of March. Can any one from there tell me the weather and how bad are the mosquitoes this time of the year? Cant wait to go either way!

Hot hot hot.
And if the mosquito question is actually a 'Do I need Malaria prophylaxis?' question, then I'd say yes.

March is the beginning of the humid season in Mumbai; expect high humidity and hot weather.
As for the mosquitoes, I'd agree that packing an anti-malarial would be prudent. As soon as you land, try to find the closest pharmacy and pick up a tube of Odomos, which is a repellent cream. With some Odomos on your extremities (and a sleeping net at night) everything should be just peachy.

Sleeping net doesnt sound too appealing though
Gotta admit, some thing about catching and smashing mosquitoes does sound fun. Lets see what happens. :)
