Study says stress is driving all of Delhi crazy

I thought I was losing my cool the first time I tried to run somebody off the road.  But it turns out all of Delhi is losing its mind, thanks to lawlessness, filth, overcrowding, traffic, air pollution, loud noises and long working hours.  Yep, it's been scientifically proven.

Stress at work and in social life has resulted in an increase in the number of people suffering from psychiatric illnesses and sub-syndromes of diseases like headache, tension and insomnia, the Times of India reports, citing a survey conducted by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) on urban mental health. 

According to the survey conducted across three cities in the country, including Delhi, 8-10% people suffer from psychiatric illnesses like depression, anxiety, and schizophrenia, among others -- and only a handful get treatment.

Maybe that's because the lunatics are running the asylum.
