Respected for his wisdom, he was aptly called, ‘Grand Old Man of India’. In order to press claims of justice for India, Naoroji went to England in 1886, to draw the attention of the British public. He spent the next six years in a heroic struggle to enter the British Parliament. He was elected to the British House of Commons in 1892, and was the first Indian to achieve this distinction. He displayed amazing mastery over facts and figures, and succeeded in bringing India’s extreme poverty to the notice of the British public.

He had set a unique example by resigning as the Railway Minister following a train accident in 1956, for which he personally owned responsibility. His example is yet to be emulated. General Yayah Khan unleashed a regime of repression in March 1971, to crush the unrest in East Pakistan. It resulted in the massacre of over three million people and the influx of over ten million refugees into the Indian territory. Pakistan initiated the war that ended on December 16, 1971. India emerged victorious having captured Dhaka along with 93000 POWs.

During these years he visited England several times, and took a leading part in starting the East India Association in London, in December 1866. During his brief sojourn there he established a branch of the Association. Dadabhai found a ready forum for discussion on matters of interest to India.
