If you are a social media enthusiast, you would have come across a whole lot of #JCBKiKhudayi memes in the last few hours. The hashtag went viral soon after a netizen pointed out that a random video of a JCB machine removing rubble has been seen over four million times on YouTube, indicating some people are so ‘jobless’ that they spend hours watching an activity as trivial as digging soil. Since then, people are sharing funny memes and one-liners with #JCBKiKhudayi. But won’t you like to know more about JCB, especially after this meme fest? Here are some interesting things you should definitely know about the company:
