A couple of weeks ago, February 26, it was the Republic Day of India and lots of celebrations took place all around the world.
Finnish airline Finnair did something quite simple but original and entertaining. On the January 17th Finnair flight AY201 from Helsinki to Dehli a dance crew wearing traditional clothes surprised passengers by dancing and singing “Deewangi Deewangi” from the Bollywood blockbuster “Om Shanti Om.” Most passengers seemed to enjoy it while some others look a little...lost!
Indians might be separated by the various languages and culinary traditions, but something they all have in common is their warm and kind hospitality; probably that is the message that Finnair wanted to convey.
The video went viral and as of today it was seen by more than 4.5 million people. A very good result if you think that Finland has a population of 5.5 million people. Check it out.
