Naoroji is renowned for his work in the Indian National Congress , of which he was one of the founding members and thrice — in , , and — elected president. He was also a member of the Second International along with Kautsky and Plekhanov. Being an Athornan ordained priest , Naoroji founded the Rahnumai Mazdayasan Sabha Guides on the Mazdayasne Path on 1 August to restore the Zoroastrian religion to its original purity and simplicity.
In , he also founded a Gujarati fortnightly publication, the Rast Goftar or The Truth Teller , to clarify Zoroastrian concepts and promote Parsi social reforms.
Within three years, he had resigned on ethical grounds. In , Naoroji directed and launch the London Indian Society , the purpose of which was to discuss Indian political, social and literary subjects. The Association was instrumental in counter-acting the propaganda by the Ethnological Society of London which, in its session in , had tried to prove the inferiority of the Asians to the Europeans.
This Association soon won the support of eminent Englishmen and was able to exercise considerable influence in the British parliament. He was also a member of the Indian National Association founded by Sir Surendranath Banerjea from Calcutta a few years before the founding of the Indian National Congress in Bombay, with the same objectives and practices. Naoroji published Poverty and un-British Rule in India in Naoroji moved to Britain once again and continued his political involvement.
During his time he put his efforts towards improving the situation in India. He had a very clear vision and was an effective communicator. He set forth his views about the situation in India over the course of the history of the governance of the country and the way in which the colonial rulers rule.
He was also a notable Freemason. In his political campaign and duties as an MP, he was assisted by Muhammed Ali Jinnah , the future Muslim nationalist and founder of the State of Pakistan.
In , Naoroji was again elected president of the Indian National Congress. Naoroji was a staunch moderate within the Congress, during the phase when opinion in the party was split between the moderates and extremists. Such was the respect commanded by him that assertive nationalists could not oppose his candidature and the rift was avoided for the time being. He was married to Gulbai at the age of eleven. He died in Bombay on 30 June , at the age of Today the Dadabhai Naoroji Road , a heritage road of Mumbai, is named after him.
A prominent residential colony for central government servants in the south of Delhi is also named Naoroji Nagar. His granddaughters Perin and Khrushedben were also involved in the independence movement. In , Khurshedben was arrested along with other revolutionaries for attempting to hoist the Indian flag in a Government College in Ahmedabad.
Dadabhai Naoroji's work focused on the drain of wealth from India to Britain during the period rule of British rule in India. Through his work with economics, Naoroji sought to prove that Britain was draining money out of India. Firstly, India was governed by a foreign government.
Secondly, India did not attract immigrants which brought labour and capital for economic growth. Thirdly, India paid for Britain's civil administrations in India and her Indian army. Fourthly, India bore the burden of empire building in and out of its borders. Fifthly, opening the country to free trade allowed for foreigners to take highly paid jobs over those of equally qualified Indians.
Lastly, the principal income-earners would spend their money outside of India or leave with the money as they were mostly foreign personnel. When referring to the drain, Naoroji stated that he believed some tribute was necessary as payment for the services that Britain brought to India such as the newly-constructed railways. However the money from these services were being drained out of India; for instance the money being earned by the railways did not belong to India, which supported his assessment that India was sending too much to Britain.
According to Naoroji, India was paying tribute for something that was not bringing profit to the country directly. Instead of paying off foreign investment which other countries did, India was paying for services rendered despite the operation of the railway being already profitable for Britain. This type of drain was experienced in different ways as well, for instance, British workers earning wages that were not equal with the work that they have done in India, or trade that undervalued India's goods and overvalued outside goods.
Furthermore, the Honourable East India Company was purchasing Indian goods with money drained from India to export to Britain, which was a way that the opening up of free trade allowed India to be exploited.
When elected to Parliament by a narrow margin of five votes, his first speech was devoted to the issue of questioning Britain's role in India. Naoroji explained that Indians would either be British subjects or their slaves, depending on how willing Britain was to give India control over the institutions that Britain presently operated.
By giving these institutions to India it would allow India to govern itself and as a result all revenue would stay in India. By presenting himself as an imperial subject he was able to use rhetoric to show the benefit to Britain that an ease of financial burden on India would have. He argued that by allowing the money earned in India to stay in India, tributes would be willingly and easily paid without fear of poverty; he argued that this could be done by giving equal employment opportunities to Indian professionals who were consistently forced to take jobs that they were over-qualified for.
Indian labour would be more likely to spend their income within India preventing one aspect of the drain. Naoroji also found it important to examine Anglo-Indian trade to prevent the premature dissolution of budding industries to unfair valuing of goods and services. Over time, Naoroji became more inflammatory in his comments as he began to lose patience with Britain over the seemingly lack of progress regarding reforms. Naoroji once rhetorically questioned whether or not the British government would be willing to award French youths all the high ranking posts in the British economy.
He also pointed to historical examples of Britain being opposed to the "wealth drain" concept, including the English objection to the wealth drain to the papacy during the 's. This commission reviewed financial burdens on India and in some cases came to the conclusion that those burdens were misplaced.
Dadabhai Naoroji is regarded as one of the most important Indians during the birth of the nascent independence movement. In his writings, he came to the conclusion that the exertion of foreign rule over India was not favourable for the nation, and that independence or at the very least, responsible government would be the better path for India. Further development was checked by the frequent invasions of India by, and the subsequent continuous rule of, foreigners of entirely different character and genius, who, not having any sympathy with the indigenous literature — on the contrary, having much fanatical antipathy to the religion of the Hindus — prevented its further growth.
Priest-hood, first for power and afterwards from ignorance, completed the mischief, as has happened in all other countries.
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi wrote to Naoroji in , saying that "The Indians look up to you as children to the father. Such is really the feeling here. Bal Gangadhar Tilak admired him; he said:. If we twenty eight crore of Indians were entitled to send only one member to the British parliament , there is no doubt that we would have elected Dadabhai Naoroji unanimously to grace that post.
Here are the significant extracts taken from his speech delivered before the East India Association on 2 May regarding what educated Indians expect from their British rulers. The difficulties thrown in the way of according to the natives such reasonable share and voice in the administration of the country ad they are able to take, are creating some uneasiness and distrust.
The universities are sending out hundreds and will soon begin to send out thousands of educated natives. This body naturally increases in influence All [the Europeans] effectually do is to eat the substance of India, material and moral, while living there, and when they go, they carry away all they have acquired. The thousands [of Indians] that are being sent out by the universities every year find themselves in a most anomalous position. There is no place for them in their motherland.

Я здесь проездом, из Бургоса. Прошу прощения за беспокойство, доброй вам но… - Espere. Подождите! - Сеньор Ролдан был коммерсантом до мозга костей.
В полном недоумении Сьюзан посмотрела в окно кабинета на видневшийся внизу ТРАНСТЕКСТ. Она точно знала, что на такой пароль уходит меньше десяти минут. - Должно ведь быть какое-то объяснение. - Оно есть, - кивнул Стратмор. - Тебя оно не обрадует.
Он мысленно прорепетировал предстоящее убийство. Если у входа на площадку взять вправо, можно увидеть самый дальний левый угол площадки, даже еще не выйдя на. Если Беккер окажется там, Халохот сразу же выстрелит.
- О Боже, - хмыкнул он, - значит, эта история подтверждается. Беккеру даже сделалось дурно. - Прошу прощения. Офицер покачал головой, словно не веря своим глазам.
Дверь повернулась до положения полного открытия. Через пять секунд она вновь закроется, совершив вокруг своей оси поворот на триста шестьдесят градусов. Сьюзан собралась с мыслями и шагнула в дверной проем. Компьютер зафиксировал ее прибытие. Хотя Сьюзан практически не покидала шифровалку в последние три года, она не переставала восхищаться этим сооружением.
Консьерж шумно выдохнул, словно сбросив с плеч тяжесть.
Верно, Шерлок Холмс. - Забавное имя. Сам придумал. - А кто же еще! - ответил тот с гордостью. - Хочу его запатентовать.
Настали не лучшие времена, - вздохнул Стратмор. Не сомневаюсь, - подумала. Сьюзан никогда еще не видела шефа столь подавленным.

Беккер когда-то сам заблудился в его узких проходах. Набирая скорость на последнем отрезке Матеус-Гаго, он увидел впереди горой вздымающийся готический собор XI века. Рядом с собором на сто двадцать метров вверх, прямо в занимающуюся зарю, поднималась башня Гиральда.
Казалось, все происходящее было от нее безумно. Джабба вздохнул и снова вытер пот со лба. По выражению его лица было ясно: то, что он собирается сказать, не понравится директору и остальным.
