A 17-year-old Delhi student was brought to the AIIMS Behavioral Addiction Clinic (BAC) after he failed his exams. His parents, both working professionals in full work-from-home mode, were unaware that their studious, engineering-aspirant son had got hopelessly addicted

As a general rule, we’re a bit wary of Kickstarters and Indiegogo campaigns. If you’ve not been caught out by one, you’re probably far too sensible and don’t buy stupid s**t on the crowdfunding platforms.
