Dinyar Patel an Assistant Professor of South Asian History at the SP Jain Institute of Management & Research and a research affiliate at the Mittal Institute at Harvard University. His latest book, Naoroji: Pioneer of Indian Nationalism, is an excellent biography of Dadabhai Naoroji, a foundational figure in the building of modern-day India.
I had a chance to speak with Dinyar about the trajectory of
Indian nationalism, the ideas that influenced Naoroji, the
difference between Naoroji and his contemporaries like fellow parsi
and British MP Mancherjee Bhownagree, Naoroji’s correspondence with
radical socialist Henry Hyndman, Dinyar’s intellectual and
professional journey, and much more.
