Dom Moraes died over three years ago on June 2, 2004. He was buried in the Sewri Christian Cemetery in Mumbai. He had never been a practising Christian. Although he was born in Mumbai and died of cancer there, and was as dark as a Goan, he considered himself English, spoke no Indian language, and wished to be buried in the churchyard of Odcombe, a tiny village in Somerset … Dom was a complex character. He disliked everything about India, particularly Indians. The only exceptions he made were the good-looking women he took to bed.
