Well-known Persons From Landour.

Quoted from Wikipedia:
Landour also has an outsized presence on the cultural map of India, its most famous resident being the Anglo-Indian author Ruskin Bond. Another thespian Tom Alter, himself Landour-raised and a Woodstock School graduate, is a part-year resident, spending the remainder of his time in Bollywood. His cousin, the peripatetic Stephen Alter, also a Woodstock alum and an "Indo-nostalgic" author, is often in town for long stretches (Stephen Alter's book "Neglected Lives" is set in a fictional hill-station named Debrakot, sharing some characteristics with the real Landour). Stephen's father Rev. Bob Alter had been principal of Woodstock in the 1970s and 1980s. The media moguls Prannoy Roy and Radhika Roy, founders of NDTV, also maintain a second home in Landour. The Hindi film director Vishal Bhardwaj has a house in Landour and is the next door neighbour to Ruskin Bond.
