More than a 1,000 Gujaratis from Houston will present a Mega Dandiya, the traditional Gujarati dance, to welcome the Prime Minister for this grand event.
Prime Minister at this special event is likely to lay out his vision of India’s growth and development. Mr Modi feels that the power of the diaspora should be harnessed for the growth of India.

Cultivating the Indian diaspora has been a major objective of him since he took office. The Prime Minister is unique amongst his predecessors in not just recognizing the value of millions of Indians living abroad, but actively trying to reach them as well.

He views the global Indian community as citizen ambassadors of India and contributing to India’s growth and development agenda. Undoubtedly, PM’s outreach with Howdy Modi will help cement India’s image abroad.

After the Howdy Modi event, Prime Minister is scheduled to attend the unveiling of plaque for groundbreaking ceremony of Eternal Gandhi Museum and inauguration of Gujarati Samaj Houston Event Centre and Shri Siddhi Vinayak Temple in Houston. Then, Prime Minister will emplane for New York .
