Vogeti started the marathon church organ playing sharp at 5 am on September 30. Vogeti demonstrated the symptoms of some physical queasiness once after 20 hours of performance and again after 40 hours of the marathon but proved his grit gradually and played the Melakarta Ragas to the fullest contentment of the audience.
