A golden mirror lies on Khujasta’s bed.
Before Khujasta can leave for a clandestine meeting with her lover, she is stopped by Tuti the parrot who begins to tell her the story of a group of small animals who joined together to overcome an elephant. By the time the parrot’s tale is over, the sun has risen and Khujasta is unable to leave.
