Amid a euphoric atmosphere, the much-anticipated ‘Howdy, Modi!’ mega-event commenced with chants of ‘Modi, Modi’.
The 90-minute music, dance, and multimedia show featured close to 400 artists and community members from Texas and across the United States.
The mega event began with a rendition of Gurbani — hymns of Sikh scriptures — on Sunday at Houston’s NRG stadium.
