We told you that our lack of sleep is costing the world billions of dollars. We also told you that Gen-Z might be the most hardworking people ever. 

Now it's time to put the spotlight on India — a country of 1.3 billion people with 65% below the age of 35. 

In short: India is tired, overworked, sleep-starved and vacation-deprived. Here are 5 stats that show India needs to up its work-like balance game: 

1. Almost a quarter (22%) of Indians are concerned about being tired. That is their biggest concern, this report says.

2. Indian millennials reportedly spend 52 hours a week at work, the highest in the world. The average for the US is 45 and the UK is 41.
