Lenin -The leader of the masses

The great soviet leader, Vladimir Lenin died on January 21, 1924. But his body is till date preserved in the Lenin Mausoleum at red square, Moscow. I got a chance to look into the process of still preserving and cleaning his body in the mausoleum. It's amazing to even look at it. Russians are good at the mummification process, I believe. The link to the video is here.
The Sad news is that the Russian government is planning to bury him soon.

Hope the Indians could have mummified even Gandhi for us to have a look at him at the present.

FACT:- One other person shared the tomb with Lenin. Anyone knows who it is?
Joseph Stalin
