‘I am not a slave to my phone’
Actress Gul Panag, who loves using technology, says that people should not allow it to take over their life.
“I adopted technology way before others...my dependency on smart phones is much higher than other people...And I feel that if technology can make life easier, then one must adopt it. However, one must not allow it to take over his or her life...” she said.
“There is a fine distinction between making your life easier and having your life taken over and becoming a slave... I am not a slave to my phone,” she added.

I felt like an alien. Though I wanted to get back to work, I was nourishing my body and focussing on my health.’
