As the Indian community in New York looks forward to hear Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the organisers of the upcoming reception event at the Madison Square Garden say that the 30,000-strong crowd in attendance would include age groups ranging from 5 years to 90 years.

However, the majority of the crowd, as per a data analysis of those having registered for the event, would be in the age group of 30-35 years.

The registration for the Community Reception event at Madison Square Garden for Modi, to be held on September 28, has ended.

The data analysis includes approximately 20,000 registrants through "Welcoming Partner" organisations and about 10,000 registrants through the General Admission.

The female participation is expected to be maximum in the age group of 20-25 years.

The data shows that about 12 per cent of the attendees would be in the 30-year age group, followed by about 11 per cent each in the 35-year and 40-year age groups, and over 10 per cent registrants in the near-25-year age group.

Those in the age group of up to 5 years are estimated over one per cent of the total crowd, while there are also a few in the age group of 85-90 years among those having registered for the event.

Those having registered for the event include representatives of groups like Gujarati Samaj of New York, Indo-American Seniors Organisation, US India Political Action Committee, Vishwa Hindu Parishad of America, Bihar Jharkhand Association of North America, New York Tamil Sangam, Indian Business Association, and Overseas Friends of BJP.

The Prime Minister will be in US from September 26-30, during which he will address the United Nations General Assembly, hold talks with US President Barack Obama and other senior US government officials and business leaders, besides attending the community reception at New York and other events.
