Nothing speaks to every single of us like music.
It's magical, universal appeal lends wings to our imagination and is balm for the anxious soul.
Looks like the good folks at the ministry of civil aviation agree too and have requested our airports and airlines to play Indian music at airports and during flights as part of its culture promotion initiative.
Sukanya Verma suggests 10 super pleasing Indian melodies for their playlist.
Safar, Jab Harry Met Sejal
Safar pays rich ode to the frequent flier with its profound understanding of a traveller's many moods and endless destinations.
Pudhu Vellai Mazhai, Roja
Music: A R Rahman
The sheer enchantment and transporting quality of Rahman's breakout tune is just what a flier needs.
Kaisi Hai Yeh Ruth, Dil Chahta Hai
A disarming serenity envelops this lilting S-E-L song and paints the listener's mind with calm and colours.
Butta Bomma, Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo
Music: Thaman S
Butta Bomma's peppy, perky style says have a pleasant flight in ways only an Allu Arjun entertainer can.
Music: A R Rahman
Journey to self discovery while out and about is every traveler's goal and most poetically documented in the intimate, soaring tunes of Safarnama.
Aaj Main Oopar, Khamoshi
That top of the world feeling when you're literally thousands of feet above is joyfully captured in Aaj Main Oopar.
Ikk Kudi, Udta Punjab
Music: Amit Trivedi
Amit Tridevi's sublime treatment of poet Shiv Kumar Batalvi's soulful lines has an elevating, enjoyable effect.
Sairat Zaala Ji, Sairat
Masters of grandeur and romance, composer duo Ajay-Atul give the listener much to exhale about in the overwhelming ardour of this mellifluous Sairat gem.
Badalon Se, Satya
Music: Vishal Bhardwaj
Ever so fun letting the imagination run riot when soaring amidst fluffy clouds. Perhaps Gulzar's whimsy lyrics for Badalon Se were penned during one such memorable flight.
Music: Rajesh Murugesan
A wonderful melody from a wonderful movie, there's an instantly hooking and feel-good air to Malare. God knows the world could do with some cheer.
