Onam 2020: Here’s how you can download and send themed WhatsApp stickers

Every Malayali across the world comes together to celebrate the annual harvest festival of Onam. The festival sees people make Pookalam outside their homes, which is a beautiful design of flowers signifying the festival. One of the major attractions of Onam is Onasadhya, a grand feast that is served on a banana leaf.

However, with travel restrictions at place and the risk of congregations amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, you might not be able to physically celebrate Onam with your loved ones.
