Bhubhaneswar: There is a popular adage ‘Bull in a China shop’ which means mindless destruction.
This is what happened when two fighting bulls rushed into a shop in city’s Bombikhal areas on Thursday. The bulls locked their horns on the street to show their strength. They caused damages to some bikes and cars parked nearby. However, when the fight become fierce, the two bulls entered into a nearby electrical repairing workshop and destroyed all the articles in the shelves.
Poor Pradip Behera, shop owner, has filed an FIR against the unknown bulls in the police station. The purpose is not to get the rogue bulls arrested but to manage documents to claim insurance.
It is said that the phrase which literary means a bull in a crockery shop has orginated from the 1834 novel ‘Jacob Faithful’ by American novelist Frederick Marryat.
