    Houston-based Texas India Forum will host a community summit in honour of visiting Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the NRG Stadium on September 22.

    The event will be organised by the Texas India Forum, a not-for-profit organisation. The mega event billed as “Howdy, Modi!”,  is expected to be attended by 50,000 people.

    It will include a cultural programme and an address by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The tagline for the summit is “Shared Dreams, Bright Futures”. This will be Mr Modi’s first visit to Houston as the Prime Minister of India.

    Over 650 community organisations have already signed up to be “welcome partners” for the programme. Organisers have extended the deadline for welcome partners to sign up until Saturday and they will receive exclusive early access to free passes for their members.

    Attendance for the event will be free, but passes will be required, which can be obtained only by registering at the website www.howdymodi.org. Early access for welcome partner organisations starts July 28 and general registration will open on August 12.
