plays for 60 hours, as a tribute to Mumbai victims
A musician from Dehradun begins playing classical musical instrument 'Sitar'
for 60 hours, as a tribute to the Mumbai attack victims. Surmani Agni Verma, who
dedicate his musical tribute to the victims of Mumbai attacks said his attempt
is probably the first of its kind in India and that it could earn him a name in
the Guinness Book of World Records. The 'Sitar' teacher who began his musical
journey for a noble cause on January 22 is expected to play the seven musical
notes around 8, 64, 000 times in the sixty hours. "I will dedicate my musical
tribute to the victims of the recent Mumbai attacks. I will play continuously
for 60 hours. This would be the first of its kind event in the world," said Verma.
The audience prayed that not only should the musician earn fame by making it to
the Guinness Book, but also that the musical notes should send a message of peace
to the entire nation. Verma attempts to break the record that is held by one Shambhu
Das of Toronto. He would take the first break only after playing for 25 hours
to break the earlier record, then he will take breaks at intervals of 12 hours.
