Sarayu on Dom

Sarayu Ahuja, writer and companion of the late Dom Moraes (they co-authored two books before he died), writes in Mid-Day Mumbai:
“The last image that I remember of him is of his hands crossed over his body as he lay in a tapered coffin, too small not for his body but for who he was; and his eyes shut, his face death-pale, yet peaceful and even thankful perhaps for the final journey. Yes, I remember those hands; they were porcelain white and glowing as though the moon had lent them its skin for the day.”
