Conversation about Volconic eruption in English dialogue

The following is a conversation focussing on volcanic
eruptions:

Giri : What exactly is a volcanic eruption?

Jwala : The magma or molten rock beneath the earth’s surface
is pushed out through the vent in the volcano’s crater
and flows out in the form of lava. Eruptions occur when
magma contains a high proportion of gas.

Giri : Looks something like one losing his temper.

Jwala : Quite true. Just as the pent up anger is released with
force, the lava is forced out.

Giri : No wonder a quick-tempered person is called hot-

Glossary
eruption : forceful pushing out
vent : opening
crater : a bowl -shaped cavity
pent up : held back
