Cyrus Todiwala on Dadabhai Naoroji

p048hzgm_thumbChef Cyrus Todiwala chooses Dadabhai Naoroji, the ‘Grand Old Man of India’ who in 1892 became Britain’s first Asian MP for Finsbury Central. He later returned to India and petitioned for the country to be self-governing. Ghandi, who was Dadabhai’s mentee, would later refer to him as the Father of the Nation. Matthew Parris presents and Zerbanoo Gifford is the expert.
