He started his public life as the Dewan (Minister) to the Maharaja of Baroda in 1874.  In 1855, he was appointed Professor of Mathematics and Natural Philosophy at the Elphinstone College in Bombay. He was the first Indian to hold such an academic position. He travelled to London in 1855 to become a partner in Cama & Co, opening a Liverpool location for the first Indian company to be established in Britain. He resigned from the partnership and in 1859, he established his own cotton trading company, Dadabhai Naoroji & Co. He became professor of Gujarati at University College London.

In 1865, Dadabhai Naoroji directed the launch the London Indian Society, the purpose of which was to discuss Indian political, social and literary subjects. In 1867,  Naoroji also helped to establish the East India Association,  with the aim of putting across the Indian point of view before the British public. The Association was instrumental in counter-acting the propaganda by the Ethnological Society of London which, in its session in 1866, 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.

In 1874, he became Prime Minister of Baroda and was a member of the Legislative Council of Mumbai (1885–88). He was also a member of the Indian National Association founded by Sir Surendranath Banerjee from Calcutta a few years before the founding of the Indian National Congress in Bombay.. The two groups later merged into the INC. Naoroji was elected President of the Congress in 1886. Naoroji published Poverty and un-British Rule in India in 1901.

He was the first British Indian MP.  He was allowed to take the oath of office in the name of God on his copy of Khordeh Avesta. In Parliament, he spoke on Irish Home Rule and the condition of the Indian people. In his political campaign and duties as an MP, he was assisted by Muhammed Ali Jinnah.  He was a member of the British House of Commons from 1892-1895. During his time he put his efforts towards improving the situation in India.  He set forth his views about the situation in India over the course of history of the governance of the country and the way in which the colonial rulers rules.

Participatory Budgeting - Innovation in Planning and Budgeting by Government at National, State and Local Levels


Each member of parliament has to prepare a plan for his constituency for the next budget period and send it to the Government for inclusion in the budget for the coming year. He has to consider state level and national level projects and their relation to the development in his constituency. He has to show some light on the resources that will be available and resources that will be spent at national level and his constituency level.

MPs have to participate actively in the planning and budgeting process of the Government proactively.

This will help in decentralized planning and development, as the central government is forced to take into consideration the plans proposed by each MP in consultation with people in his constituency.

The above statement was made by Prof K.V.S.S. Narayana Rao in February 2016 during the following presentation.

Participatory Budgeting in Europe: Democracy and public governance


Yves Sintomer, Anja Röcke, Carsten Herzberg
Routledge, 10-Mar-2016 - Political Science - 268 pages


Can participatory budgeting help make public services really work for the public?
Incorporating a range of experiments in ten different countries, this book provides the first comprehensive analysis of participatory budgeting in Europe and the effect it has had on democracy, the modernization of local government, social justice, gender mainstreaming and sustainable development. By focussing on the first decade of European participatory budgeting and analysing the results and the challenges affecting the agenda today it provides a critical appraisal of the participatory model. Detailed comparisons of European cases expose similarities and differences between political cultures and offer a strong empirical basis to discuss the theories of deliberative and participatory democracy and reveal contradictory tendencies between political systems, public administrations and democratic practices.

Participatory Budgeting


Anwar Shah
World Bank Publications, 2007 - Business & Economics - 269 pages


In the past three or four decades, public finance theorists and practitioners have struggled to identify and design institutional arrangements to help close the gap between the preferences of voters and the mix of public services actually delivered. Participatory budgeting is potentially a good approach.

This book presents an authoritative guide to the principles and practice of participatory budgeting, providing a careful analysis of the potentials of participatory budgeting in strengthening inclusive and accountable governance as well as risks associated with interest group capture of participatory processes. For interested policy makers and practitioners, the book presents the "nuts and bolts" of participatory budgeting. It provides a regional survey of such practices worldwide and draws lessons from seven individual country case studies. A CD-ROM included with the book contains these seven country case studies on Bangladesh, India, the Philippines, Russia, South Africa, Thailand and the Ukraine.

Interesting Quotes on Hinduism in Hindi



I have to check each of them. Find out their English originals and post them here.

1. लियो टॉल्स्टॉय (1828 -1910): "हिन्दू और हिन्दुत्व ही एक दिन दुनिया पर राज करेगी, क्योंकि इसी में ज्ञान और बुद्धि का संयोजन है"।

2. हर्बर्ट वेल्स (1846 - 1946): " हिन्दुत्व का प्रभावीकरण फिर होने तक अनगिनत कितनी पीढ़ियां अत्याचार सहेंगी और जीवन कट जाएगा । तभी एक दिन पूरी दुनिया उसकी ओर आकर्षित हो जाएगी, उसी दिन ही दिलशाद होंगे और उसी दिन दुनिया आबाद होगी । सलाम हो उस दिन को "।

3. अल्बर्ट आइंस्टीन (1879 - 1955): "मैं समझता हूँ कि हिन्दूओ ने अपनी बुद्धि और जागरूकता के माध्यम से वह किया जो यहूदी न कर सके । हिन्दुत्व मे ही वह शक्ति है जिससे शांति स्थापित हो सकती है"।


4. हस्टन स्मिथ (1919): "जो विश्वास हम पर है और इस हम से बेहतर कुछ भी दुनिया में है तो वो हिन्दुत्व है । अगर हम अपना दिल और दिमाग इसके लिए खोलें तो उसमें हमारी ही भलाई होगी"।

5. माइकल नोस्टरैडैमस (1503 - 1566): " हिन्दुत्व ही यूरोप में शासक धर्म बन जाएगा बल्कि यूरोप का प्रसिद्ध शहर हिन्दू राजधानी बन जाएगा"।

6. बर्टरेंड रसेल (1872 - 1970): "मैंने हिन्दुत्व को पढ़ा और जान लिया कि यह सारी दुनिया और सारी मानवता का धर्म बनने के लिए है । हिन्दुत्व पूरे यूरोप में फैल जाएगा और यूरोप में हिन्दुत्व के बड़े विचारक सामने आएंगे । एक दिन ऐसा आएगा कि हिन्दू ही दुनिया की वास्तविक उत्तेजना होगा "।

7. गोस्टा लोबोन (1841 - 1931): " हिन्दू ही सुलह और सुधार की बात करता है । सुधार ही के विश्वास की सराहना में ईसाइयों को आमंत्रित करता हूँ"।

8. बरनार्ड शा (1856 - 1950): "सारी दुनिया एक दिन हिन्दू धर्म स्वीकार कर लेगी । अगर यह वास्तविक नाम स्वीकार नहीं भी कर सकी तो रूपक नाम से ही स्वीकार कर लेगी। पश्चिम एक दिन हिन्दुत्व स्वीकार कर लेगा और हिन्दू ही दुनिया में पढ़े लिखे लोगों का धर्म होगा "।

9. जोहान गीथ (1749 - 1832): "हम सभी को अभी या बाद मे हिन्दू धर्म स्वीकार करना ही होगा । यही असली धर्म है ।मुझे कोई हिन्दू कहे तो मुझे बुरा नहीं लगेगा, मैं यह सही बात को स्वीकार करता हूँ ।"
