Khujasta is wearing an ivory-peg earring.
Tuti the parrot begins telling Khujasta a story about the daughter of a pious man who turned down three suitors, so she could follow religious pursuits. She stands outside her bed chamber, where a low table has stacked red water jugs, and a dish with ingredients to make paan. The golden ewer and basin are for handwashing.
