Usage: We were unable to stop the juggernaut
The word juggernaut is derived from Jagannath. Every year in month of Ashad Indian lunar month (sometime in June-July months) a huge religious procession is taken out with statues of Lord Krishna, his brother Balaram and their sister Subhadra placed in the huge chariots nearly 14 meters tall. The journey from Jagannath temple through the city of Puri (in east India) moves very slowly as hundreds of thousands of devotees of Lord Jagannath congregate to worship and touch the chariots.
Usage: It could be said that in business a particular company, say Microsoft in software or Google in internet business are like juggernauts.
