Software great Prof. Andrew Tanenbaum hugging Mata Amritanandamayi

Around 1 min 25 secs into this video, https://www.facebook.com/WesternHindu/videos/590546887748142/, dated April 2015, you see a person who is labelled as Prof. Andrew Tanenbaum, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_S._Tanenbaum, one of the greats of the software world in the area of operating systems and in the area of computer networks hugging Mata Amritanandamayi. Not only have I studied Tanenbaum's books on computer networks and Minix, but I have also used them as course book for Minix course (https://raviiyerteaches.wordpress.com/2014/03/30/minix-kernel-internals/) and supporting book for network programming course that I have taught (https://raviiyerteaches.wordpress.com/2014/03/21/network-socket-programming-including-pthread-programming/ has the course content which does not mention Tanenbaum's book but refers to a Computer Networks theory course which students had done in the past which used Tanenbaum's book on Computer Networks, if I recall correctly)!

What a pleasant surprise it is for me to see him hugging Mata Amritanandamayi!

BTW I have been blessed with one hug from Mata Amritandandamayi sometime in the 1990s.
