No Strings Attached

It looked like a case of theft. 

The thief seemed to be an expert. 

And a connoisseur too- else why would she/he steal that particular product only?

There were no clues.

The young detective Rima shook her head.  


She had to investigate all the angles of the case. 

The ribbon on the floor surely had a story.

Rima knew it belonged to Nila, their neighbour.

Gingerly picking it up, she made way to Nila's home. 

Rima's father had got Chhenapoda for Rima's birthday.

It was missing. 

Nila had "stolen" the Chhenapoda to decorate it and to write "Happy Birthday, Rima!"

Note- Chhenapoda is a delicious cottage-cheese cake-type dessert of Odisha, India.
