The Kannada version of the Executive Summary of the Dementia India Report 2010 was released by NIMHANS, Bangalore, in 2011. I have now made it available on my Dementia Care Notes website for ready reference by anyone who is interested. I am also including a few excerpts below, hopefully to get some of the Kannada-reading persons interested enough to either read it or to let others know about it.
