The white domes above Khujasta’s room were originally painted with stripes.
Khujasta stands in a courtyard consulting with Tuti the talking parrot before visiting her lover. Tuti begins to tell Khujasta a story that details the love of two couples who prevailed to get what they desired. By the time the parrot’s tale has ended, the sun is rising, and it is too late for Khujasta to leave.
