Started the concert with Chathurasra Nadai demonstration, they showed how the different patterns are used in a concert..

Same way, they demonstrated both Thisram and Sankeernam together and showed how they conclude with all the 5 Nadais - Sankeernam, Misram, Khanda, Chaturasram and finally Thisram in a descending order (Kuraippu). He also explained the significance of these numbers, like 4 Yugas, 4 Vedas, 3 Speeds (Vilambith, Madhyama, Dhuritha), Trinity, 9 Forms of Bhakthi, 9 Gems etc.
