Abbas Tyabji (1853-1936) was the Chief Justice of the Baroda High Court before becoming a staunch follower of Gandhiji. He was one of the members of the committee appointed by the Indian National Congress to review the charges against General R. Dyer for the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. After listening to and cross-examining hundreds of eye witnesses and victims of General Dyer's brutality, Abbas was totally disillusioned and made a complete political somersault by becoming the most devoted co-worker of Gandhiji. Thereafter, he became a staunch champion of the Swadeshi movement. Abbas's services and sacrifices endeared him to the nation and earned him the title of 'Chhota Gandhi'.
