gupta.agra’s Classical.Music collection at eSnips

I am fortunate enough to have collected a large number of hindustani classical music songs over a period of couple of years. I have uploaded some in my eSnips folder :


I am no expert of classical music nor do I understand the intricacies and technicalities of such music but still I am fascinated by it.

My eSnips folder is a tribute to all those young artists who have chosen to sing this genre of music inspite of better financial and glamourous lure of playback singing in the film world. Only an absolute dedication and love for their art has prevented them from swaying to the ‘other’ side.

I have included about 100 artists, some of them are very young and relatively less known but in no way less talented.

I am also very happy to tell you all, that this eSnips folder has attained Google Page Ranking of 3 within two months. This blog too has a ranking of 4 and my other blog Indian Raga at Blogger has a Google Ranking of 2. Both these were created about the same time as my eSnips folder. This just proves that hindustani classical music is becoming more popular than ever before.

    Dear Sir,
    I really liked your blog. This is a fantastic resource for people who love our classical music. I’m a student of classical music and a bit of a web designer too and your site appealed to me on both fronts. I noticed you have soundclips of my Guruji, Pt. Satyasheel Deshpande on your esnips page. I think you’ll like his website. Do visit it at and do listen to the soundclips and video clips of his live concerts. I’m sure you’ll enjoy them. Thank you.

    Dear Sir,

    I congratulate you for having collected these masterpieces. And more that you have put them together for interested lot. As a never ending thirst for ‘more’ & ‘better’, I wish to request for the collection on DVD/s for anywhere listening? It would really be great to load all on personal storage such as ipod, mobile etc…

    Warm Regards,

    I have created several classical music playlists in esnips, many of the clips being from your wonderful collection. Thank you for that.

    I have a problem with esnips now. They have changed the interface recently and I find that the old buttons for ‘Quicklist’ and ‘New Playlist’ are missing. There are lots of complaints on the internet about the new interface but none has addressed my peculiar problem. I can retrieve old playlists but cannot make new ones, nor can I add anything to the existing ones.

    As a person experienced with esnips can you tell me anything about this? Are there any others having a similar problem?
