List of Doon School alumni
The Doon School (informally Doon School or Doon) is a boys-only private boarding school in Dehradun, Uttarakhand, India. The school is relatively new among Indian boarding schools; its founding in 1935 was the culmination of canvassing by some moderate Indian nationalists led by Satish Ranjan Das, a Calcutta lawyer. The founders foresaw a school modelled on the British public school, but alive to Indian ambitions and desires. The school's first headmaster, Englishman Arthur E. Foot, had spent some nine years as science master at Eton College, England, and returned to England soon after India's independence.
Admission in the school is based on a competitive examination and an interview. Every year in January and April, the school admits pupils aged 13 in Grade 7 (known as D-form) and aged 14 in Grade 8 (C-form) respectively. A quarter of the school's students are children of alumni. Doon remains a boys-only school despite continued pressure from political leaders, including the then President Pratibha Patil in 2010, to become coeducational. According to ethnographic filmmaker David Macdougall, there is a tendency among some Doscos to idealize a Golden Age, set in the first decade of the school's life, which sometimes makes them resistant to change. However, girl students are admitted in case they are wards of staff working at the school.Old boys of The Doon School are commonly known as Doscos. Although the total number of Doscos is relatively small (estimated at 5,000 since the school was founded in 1935), they include some of India's prominent politicians, government officials and business leaders. The best known alumnus is former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.
