Sitar Practice: can I play at 220 BPM!?

The live stream video of this sitar practice stutters, sorry!!

I think this is some of my best playing overall so feel free to listen in the background while you do other work.

I play some alap and then focus on gat and taans. My teacher gave me a goal of 200 beats per min. He thinks I can go faster now. Can I?
