Sir Ravindra Jadeja ~ created Mt Everest; stadium comes to him for practice

Have you ever tried a name search of self on web ~ and how visible are you on the world wide web ? ……. I had earlier posted about Chuck Norris and Rajnikant …….. famous for memes..  click here on   Rajni meme  to read my earlier post : 

This youngster is just 24  is a left handed batsman who can also bowl ! ~ reportedly owns a Suzuki Hayabusa which costs around 14 lakhs – a powerful two wheeler revealing his desire for speed…….he is latest Internet sensation ~ though have not had great exploits on field…….. in the inaugural season of IPL he was selected by Rajasthan Royals; had to sit out of 2010 IPL due to a ban arising from contractual irregularities; in 2011, he was selected by Kochi Tuskers Kerala for $950,000; Kochi Tuskers were excluded from the IPL in September 2011, and in the 2012 IPL player auction, he was bought by Chennai Super Kings for $2 million (approx. Rs. 9.8 Crore) after a tie breaker with Deccan Chargers who bid the same amount. He was the most expensive player of the auction……… perhaps has not justified that price thus far………

Often we do a google search or refer to the Wikipedia for any information on anything and everything on the earth.  He made us realize that the results you get may not always be genuine……. On a recent day, a search on Ravindra Jadeja showed a page describing him as ‘philanthropist, Nobel laureate,  a double Laureus sportsman of the year, and the nearest human to being God. Other than that he is an Indian cricketer.”  The error was corrected sooner………..but  has since been rectified. The thing about Wikipedia is that anyone with registered ID can edit the contents ~ now he is part of Internet history as there are so many memes on him. 

The exuberant Ravindra Jadeja surprised a lot of people with his performances against Australia in the recent four-Test series. Bracketed as a limited overs specialist, it was Jadeja’s bowling that shone brightest, with only R Ashwin taking more wickets, though Jadeja bested him in the average and strike-rate columns.    Ravindra Jadeja or Ravindrasinh Anirudhsinh Jadeja is a character, he had a big role in the stellar performance of Saurashtra in the Ranji this season; he was part of  Indian U-19 cricket team that won the World Cup in Malaysia in 2008. Jadeja made his ODI debut against Sri Lanka on 8 February 2009 and scored an unbeaten 60 in that match. However, his Test debut came almost four years later, in December 2012, against England at Nagpur.
He had a less than ordinary performance in the 2009 ICC World Twenty20 event, and since then  Jadeja has been a consistent target of sarcasm and jokes by cricket portals and Indian cricket fans. On Twitter and Facebook, he is jokingly referred to as Sir Ravindra Jadeja since an online joke calling him the same went viral. When Jadeja was out clean bowled for 16 while not offering a shot in the February 2013 Chennai test against Australia, a cricket portal described his dismissal as "Jadeja falls 284 runs short of what would have been a fourth first-class triple-century".

On Twitter somehow he is compared with Rajnikant with a recent one from Mahendra Singh Dhoni going viral……Dhoni appears on aircel advertisement and claims that he is hooked to the FB / Twitter all the time…… and perhaps maintains that……  there are many tweets attributed to MSD, Suresh Raina and Ashwin making fun on Jaddu.   

Most internet memes were attributed to Chuck Norris and in this part of the world to Rajnikant…..suddenly, Jadeja is matching or challenging them….  MSD cracked a few jokes at the expense of the all-rounder to the delight of his fans on the social networking website.  Here are some on Jadeja going viral…..

v      "God realised RAJNI sir is getting old so he created sir ravindra jadeja." ~ MSD

A meme is a term employed in certain theories of culture to refer to "an idea, behavior or style that spreads from person to person within a culture." A meme acts as a unit for carrying cultural ideas, symbols or practices, which can be transmitted from one mind to another through writing, speech, gestures, rituals or other imitable phenomena.

An Internet meme is a concept that spreads from person to person via the Internet. The concept of a meme was defined and described by Richard Dawkins in his 1976 book The Selfish Gene, as an attempt to explain the way cultural information spreads. Fads and sensations tend to grow rapidly on the Internet, because the instant communication facilitates word of mouth transmission. Much of the Internet's ability to spread information is assisted from results found through search engines, which can allow users to find memes even with obscure information. An Internet meme may take the form of an image, hyperlink, video, picture, website, or hashtag. It may be just a word or phrase, including intentionally misspelling; these small movements tend to spread from person to person via social networks, blogs, direct email, or news sources.

Incidentally are you on twitter and intend tweeting on IPL or Sir Jadeja ?
