Dadabhai Naoroji (4 September 1825 – 30 June 1917), known as the Grand Old Man of India, was a parsi intellectual, educator and an early Indian political and social leader. He was a Liberal Party member of Parliament (MP) in the United Kingdom House of Commons between 1892 and 1895, and the first Asian to be a British MP. Dadabhai Naoroji has been credited as the founder of the Indian National Congress along with Dinshaw Edulji Wacha and A.O. Hume of which he was the first President. Mahatma Gandhi wrote him a letter in 1894 stating “The India looks at you as children of the father”. His writings and work inspired Indian independence and created a new era of catalyzing Indian nationalism like never before.
