Software great Prof. Andrew Tanenbaum hugging Mata Amritanandamayi

Around 1 min 25 secs into this video,, dated April 2015, you see a person who is labelled as Prof. Andrew 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 ( and supporting book for network programming course that I have taught ( 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.
