Twin Burial for Son and Embalmed Mother

An Indian man loved his mother so much he had her embalmed, placed in a glass casket and brought her home much to the consternation of the neighbors.

Ghafoor consulted his mother even after her death.

"Before doing any thing important, he would write `yes' and `no' on two scraps of paper. Then sitting near the feet of his mother he will draw the lot and act accordingly," said Noor.

When the former English teacher died, he was buried in a Twin Burial for Son and Embalmed Mother.
