Dussehra 2020: Saina Nehwal, Vijender Singh, Sushil Kumar, Bajrang Punia Lead Sportsperson's Wishes on Social Media
Dussehra festivities are in full swing, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the festive spirit has been affected. The nine auspicious days of Navratri started on October 17 and pooja is being performed with all the rituals and traditions.
The festival marks the killing of the demon Ravana and his brothers Meghnad and Kumbhakarna by Lord Rama. Under normal circumstances, the day’s celebration would have been marked by burning effigies of the three demons.
Sports personalities took to social media to wish Indians on the auspicious day:
