Prof. R. Nanjunda Rao B.Sc., M.S. Sai Polyclinic, 94, Ramakrishna Math Road, Mylapore, writes about his grandfather:
Dear Editor,I introduce myself as the grand son of Late Dr.M.C. Nanjunda Rao a famous Physician and legend who lived in Mylapore. He passed away in 1918. My grand father was residing in 'Sasivilas' Mylapore - In 1893 Swami Vivekananda came to the doctors house and has had discussions before going to Chicago-Materials available with Sri Ramakrishna Math Mylapore-More over along with Sri Ramakrishnanda known as Sasi Maharaj my grand father was also helpful in establishing the mutt at Mylapore - More over Mr.C. Ramanujachariar was a family friend of ours - To start Ramakrishna Students Home whe Mr.C.R. was looking for a place it was my grand father late Dr.M.C. Nanjunda Rao gave one of his mall houses at Arisikara Street free of rent and it was started with 5 Students - this was mentioned repeatedly by Sri Nalli Kuppuswami Chetti when he spoke in the Centenary Celebration meeting. This I am writing to you for information as any activity of Sri Ramakrishna Mission was established here with only my late grand father Dr.M.C. Nanjunda Rao's help. It has been almighty's wish that my family must be closely associated with the mutt still and I had been in the management committee of Sri Ramakrishna Vivekananda Educational Mission for many years.
