Before Prime Minister Narendra Modi wraps up his second visit to the United States, a Madison Square moment awaits him at the San Jose stadium in California. A massive show has been put on for the prime minister before he addresses the Indian diaspora. A crowd of almost 20,000 people await as Modi is set to take the stage and address the excited Indians. 

Here's a look at the colourful show put on for PM Modi.
