The Stolen Crown

One day, the king's crown went missing, and there was an uproar in the kingdom. The guards were questioned, and an investigation was launched. Suspicion fell on a few courtiers, and they were interrogated, but no one confessed.

In the midst of this chaos, Tenali Raman approached the king and said, "Your Majesty, I can find the thief and retrieve your crown, but I need a week to do so."

The king, curious about Raman's confidence, agreed to give him a week. Raman began his investigation discreetly. He observed the courtiers, studied their behavior, and listened to their conversations.

After a week, Raman requested the king to assemble all the courtiers. With a mischievous glint in his eye, he declared, "I have found the thief, Your Majesty. It is none other than the thief who was worried about the stolen crown the most."

The courtiers were bewildered, and the king was intrigued. Raman pointed to one of the courtiers and said, "This person, every day, kept asking me about the progress of the investigation. He feigned concern but was, in fact, worried that his crime would be exposed."

The accused courtier, feeling the weight of suspicion, confessed to stealing the crown. The crown was then recovered, and the king was impressed by Raman's keen observation and deduction skills.

This story illustrates Tenali Raman's ability to solve a mystery through clever observation and psychological insight. While he may not have been a traditional detective, his tales showcase his talent for unraveling puzzles and outsmarting those who sought to deceive him or the king.
