India sportspersons shared pictures and messages to celebrate Onam on Wednesday. Onam marks the commemoration of home-coming of the King Mahabali. Former Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar shared a photo with a portrait of him sketched by a differently-abled artist in Kerala whereas Harbhajan Singh wished his Malayali friends and S Sreesanth. Indian football team posted a video message with players Sahal Abdul Samad, Anas Edathodika, Jobby Justin, Ashique Kuruniyan and women head coach Maymol Rockey wishing everyone on the festival.
Here’s how the sportspersons celebrated and wished everyone on Onam via Twitter and Instagram:
Happy Onam to everyone.
May this festive season bring joy & prosperity to all!
During my recent visit, I had a special interaction with Pranav, an artist who sketches with his legs & I am just amazed by his drive & motivation.
This, to me, truly symbolizes the Spirit of Kerala! pic.twitter.com/bCfUMy76wu

Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan posted a photo in traditional attire. Dhawan scored two consecutive fifties in the recently-concluded India A vs South Africa A series.
Happy Onam to all of you. I had visited the Sri Padmanabhaswamy Temple, in Thiruvananthapuram, and prayed to God, and I believe that is what saved me from the nasty bouncer to my neck. Loved the aarti I attended there🙏 Have a nice Sadya you all 😄 pic.twitter.com/Nezew76vym
