This is true hard work @skirti_0826946 . Relevant compilation, without any clutter. In order to say thank you, I just plotted all these places on google map, for super quick 'fluid' glancing. I thought it would be easy to revise all these places in this manner. Sharing the same for everyone's benefit. Though it will definitely work on smartphone, but I will recommend to use laptop to see this map (Attaching Screenshot). Here is the link- https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=1AqFUb7c0SgZzSd_wodoGqHRWG6x0BDFj&usp=sharing 


THIS IS THE SPIRIT for which Forum IAS Discuss platform was once well known for. Collective Sharing rather than Collective hiding. Everyone benefits from such unconditional helps. May God bless you both. Keep this spirit of #Sharing_is_Caring alive in you, it will return back to you with multiplicity. Best wishes. 


Happy to see such good contribution from all the members here. Best wishes to all of you and maker of this thread. Keep it up. 👍😊

God you people are awesome. In these scary times your generosity and kindness to total (and nameless) strangers are so heartwarming. I hope you all achieve everything you want in life, not just in CSE. The world needs more people like you.

This is a map of water bodies since it’s a favourite area for prelims. May be useful. And it’s a lot more fun if you export the map to KMZ and open it using Google Earth so you can spin the globe around. It’s not much but I wanted to contribute something. Good luck to you all!

Natanz Fuel Enrichment Plant (FEP), in Ishfan, Central Iran, is the country’s main uranium enrichment site. The Natanz facility is mostly underground and one of several Iranian facilities monitored by inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the U.N. nuclear watchdog. On July 2, 2020, fire broke out at the Natanz nuclear facility causing explosions that damaged a building that housed centrifuge machines.

Viking Link: world’s longest subsea power cable, which will run between Britain and Denmark to share renewable energy between the two countries.
The 475-mile (765km) cable is a joint-venture between National Grid in the UK and Denmark’s Energinet. By 2023, the high-voltage, direct-current link will transmit the equivalent of enough electricity to power 1.5m British homes between Bicker Fen in Lincolnshire and the South Jutland region in Denmark.
