Hindustan Surkhiyan Desk: Both India and the United States are all set to witness the much-awaited ‘Howdy, Modi’ event which will provide the world a glimpse of the valuable contributions of Indian-Americans to the cultural, intellectual and social landscape of the United States. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has already reached United States and will grace the event along with US President Donald Trump on Saturday. This is for the first time, PM Modi and President Trump would share the stage to address more than 50,000 Indian-Americans during the September 22 event. The two world leaders will be a part of a session called “Shared Dreams, Bright Future” that would focus on the success of Indian-Americans as well as the strength of the US-India relationship.
PM Modi will be on a US visit from September 21 to September 27 for the annual session of the United Nations General Assembly or UN General Assembly. It is his first US visit after winning a second term as Prime Minister in May 2019. He will also have a meeting with the CEO’s of energy companies in Houston, before heading to New York for the UN General Assembly.
The ‘Howdy, Modi!’ event is the third meeting between Donald Trump and PM Modi in three months, after the G20 summit in Japan in June and the G7 summit in France last month. Houston is considered the energy capital of the world and one of the most diverse cities in America.
Not just America but India is all pumped up to witness the event and are looking forward to PM’s address during the event. The Texas India Forum said the event will start with a 90-minute cultural programme – “Woven: The Indian-American Story” – that is a celebration of Indian-Americans and their valuable contributions to the cultural, intellectual and social landscape of the US.
