NEW YORK: The "high-profile" public reception that Narendra Modi received before a packed Madison Square Garden appeared prominently in American media, which so far had given scant coverage to the Prime Minister's U.S. visit.

The maiden U.S. visit of Modi as Prime Minister was hardly taken note of by mainstream American media so far, till he addressed nearly 20,000 people of the Indian community at the event in Madison Square Garden in New York.

"Madison Square Garden thundered with applause as thousands rose to their feet and chanted the name of an unlikely celebrity: Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi," The Wall Street Journal reported.

"The grand reception on Sunday, filled with dance and Bollywood tunes, was a reflection of the mood among much of the Indian-American community that sees Modi as a once-in-a-generation leader who can at last fix the entrenched problems that have held India back while other Asian nations have sped ahead," the daily wrote.

The Los Angeles Times wrote in its news report: "India's Prime Minister gets rock-star reception in New York".

"Madison Square Garden often hosts cultural icons such as Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Bono, but on Sunday the storied arena offered rock-star treatment to a political personality: Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who made the case for a resurgent India to nearly 20,000 hugely enthusiastic supporters," the daily wrote.
