‘To cut corners’ Idiom Meme Dictionary – English to Hindi translation with picture dictionary
To cut corners
(idiom) to takeshortcuts; to savemoney or effort by findingcheaper or easierways to do something
‘To cut corners’ Origin
“It’s a metaphor from driving – not necessarily motor driving, because it also applies to horse-drawn carriages. When you come to a sharp turn in the road, instead of going all the way to the corner and then turning, you can go diagonally across, and “cut the corner off”. This saves time, but entails a risk of clipping the kerb and overturning, or being involved in a pile-up with another vehicle. Thus “to cut corners” means to discard normal safe practice in order to get fast results.”
