IF AND BUT
Once a spooky-looking biologist comes to the teashop to have tea. He opens a box and starts doing some things into it (arranging eggs, or feathers or studying specimens). He is also having his tea. Once he finishes the drink, the old man leaves. But Sundar notices a thing fall from his box. By the time Sundar runs to the door, the man is gone. The thing looks like a shiny stone. Sundar is about to add the stone to his box of trinkets when Basha swoops in and snatches the box away.
