Former British Prime Minister and Theresa May’s predecessor David Cameron was born into opulence and attended the elite Eton College and Oxford University’s Brasenose College. It is under his leadership that same-sex marriage was legalised in the UK. His policies have been deemed as both economically and socially liberal. Cameron served as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 2010-2016, and identifies as a One-Nation Conservative.

Under his leadership, the Conservatives took on a more socially liberal stance.

John Lennon

“Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too...”

Forty-six years after rock ‘n’ roll legend John Lennon wrote the iconic song “Imagine”, its words continue to ring true. Lennon, one of the co-founders of British rock band ‘The Beatles’ was a rebel, and his anti-establishment stance was amply evident in his song-writing and sketches. He was a proponent of peace and his criticism of the Vietnam War almost got him deported from the US by the government of the day.

“Imagine” continues to be an anthem for peace. Lennon was assassinated on 8 December 1980, by Mark David Chapman in the archway of the former’s New York City residence.

Guru Ram Das

The fourth of the ten Sikh gurus, Guru Ram Das was born in Lahore, and was christened ‘Jetha’ at birth. He was raised by his maternal grandmother after being orphaned at the age of seven. It was five years later that he met Guru Amar Das, and became his disciple soon after.

Guru Amar Das appointed Jetha as his successor and named him Ram Das, meaning “servant or slave of god”. Ram Das assumed the position of ‘Guru’ in 1574 and held the position till his death in Amritsar, in 1581.
