The use of technology by youngsters in India has reached alarming rates.

A year-long study funded by the Indian Council for Medical Research last year on thousands of people between 18 and 40 years old in select urban communities across India showed an alarming rate of technology dependence.

Technology addiction is said to be the propensity to excessively engage in activities involving the smartphone, internet and social networking sites to the detriment of health, social life or mental state.
So mental health hospital, the National Institute of Mental Health & Neuro Sciences is opening a technology de-addiction center in Bangalore.

Downtime thinks that’s a bit like holding a gamblers anonymous meeting in Vegas.
