New York, July 19 (TIWN) The Indian diaspora in Houston is getting ready to meet the Indian Prime Minister with a Texan "Howdy, Modi!" greeting on September 22.

The Texas India Forum (TIF) that is organising the event billed as a "community summit" said it expects tens of thousands of people at the event.   The event is named alliteratively with a regional flavour for the common greeting spoken with a Texan drawl, "Howdy", as a shorthand for "How do you do."   "There is unprecedented synergy between our region and the aspirations of a New India that Prime Minister Narendra Modi represents", said Jugal Malani, an event convener.   Texas is the fastest growing large state in the US, both in population and the economy.   "The American dream shares many similarities with emerging Indian dream, and an event of this scale suggests an opportunity to build bridges across two great democracies," Malani added.
