(n) noisy fight or disturbance. Origin: L frangere, to break => 'to create a crashing sound' A village woman with a child sparked a fracas in the District Magistrate's office when the office staff did not allow her to meet the DM. She refused to leave till her request was granted. The staff had to call women police to take her away. There was an unseemly fracas on the staircase between Mr Kulkarni of flat number 202 with Mr Ramanujam of flat number 302, much to the aggravation of all the other residents of the building. The brouhaha had arisen over Mr Kulkarni's accusation that Mr Ramanujam's wife deliberately threw garbage into their balcony from above.
