speed of light!!!

I sometimes wonder how speed of light is a universal constant...every other object's speed varies wrt the inertial frame of reference[like a plane will appear slower wrt to an observer who is also flying in the same direction than one who is on the ground) ...then why speed of light remains the same for the observers in diff reference frames??? This is the principle/fundamental law on which the whole relativity is based on and is the foundation but i find this principle itself perplexing...
