Vaccine for MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) was developed in the late 60's.
1966 - After writing two of my school final (SSLC) examinations, I developed severe mumps.
I had fever and could not even get up.
My school headmaster Sri V. Srinivasan did not want me to waste one academic year and
he suggested that I bring my bed along and lie down in the exam hall. He had arranged a bench near me, so that I could get up and write now and then.
I wrote all my exams and got good marks too.
This gesture of my headmaster is unforgettable.
A few days back my son-in-law's friend Karthik came home for dinner and I learnt that
he is the grand-son of my headmaster Sri V. Srinivasan.
