“Be British.” Captain Smith’s last words, as the great Titanic went down into the icy ocean are the perfect epitome of what it means to be a Britisher. As the imperial rulers of the world who had enslaved and taken control over several other countries across continents in the quest of establishing trade ties, Britishers are also the ones who gave the world the democratic form of government, a concept that evolved from the constitutional monarchy form of government in the Great Britain. Britain is the country where some of the legends of literature and poetry took birth. Imagine what the literary world would have been like had it not been for the “Bard of Avon”, William Shakespeare, or for that matter Charles Dickens and Milton?
