Tesla unveils latest version of its solar roof. Pixabay

Multi-billionaire tech mogul Elon Musk has recently unveiled the third version of Tesla’s solar-roof product and the company hopes to install the first one in large numbers.

According to Musk, this third iteration of the electricity-generating house-topper will be cheaper, easier, and faster to install than its predecessors.


“It’ll grow like kelp on steroids,” he said.

The company says that it has increased power density in the third version of the Solar Roof tiles, reduced the parts used in the tiles by half and brought down costs substantially compared to the second generation tiles, Engadget reported.

The estimated cost of a 2,000-square-foot solar roof is $33,950 and comes with a 25-year warranty.

Telsa will initially be doing the installation themselves, and aims to complete the whole job in just eight hours.

Additionally, Musk says the Solar Roof is cheaper than a new roof and a separate roof-mounted solar system. (IANS)

But when that child grows up we teach them to avert their eyes when a group of hijras passes by, we pass on the behaviour of treating hijras as lesser humans to our children. Whenever a child raises a question related to gender identity or sexuality they are shushed down. We're taught to believe that anything "deviant" and outside of traditional cis-heteronormativity is something to be ashamed of. This mentality raises anxious, scared queer adults who're ashamed of their own identity, and adults who bully people for "queer behaviour".

Hijras are a community of people who include eunuchs, intersex, and transgender people. They worship the Hindu goddess of chastity and fertility, Bahuchara Mata. Most hijras, but not all, choose to undergo a castration ceremony known as "nirvana" in which they remove their male genitalia as an offering to their goddess. The whole community is vibrant with hundreds of people with hundreds of ways of expression, the true identity of a hijra is complex and unique to each individual. In India, hijras prefer to refer to themselves as Kinner/Kinnar as it means the mythological beings who excel at singing and dancing.
