Mama's boy!

A man in southern India preserved the corpse of his mother at home for 20 years until his death last week.
Syed Abdul Gafoor, a professor, had the body of his mother, Rahmat Bi, embalmed on her death in their home in the state of Andhra Pradesh in 1985.

He then kept the body in the family home in Kadappa district, until his death after a long illness on Saturday.

Neighbours say Mr Gafoor, was intensely attached to his mother, refusing to bury her according to Muslim customs.
