From the book:
“The sound of footsteps in the courtyard distracted her for a moment. She dropped the kerosene lamp. Before it hit the ground and smashed into a thousand pieces, the kerosene spilled onto the short, open collar of her floral poplin dress, trailing right over her gold necklace, down the buttons over her stomach and down her midi skirt, leaving a wet, cool feeling on her skin. As soon as Pooran realized what was happening, the lamp hit the ground and she was suddenly in the arms of the burning flames of the angry lover that she had always yearned for.”
