Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the Sant Tukaram Shila Mandir in the temple town of Dehu in Pune district.
 
Shila refers to a rock that is currently on the Dehu Sansthan temple premises, and that for centuries has been the starting point of Wari, the annual pilgrimage to Pandharpur.

The Bhakti saint Sant Tukaram had sat on this piece of rock for 13 continuous days when challenged about the authenticity of the Abhyangs he had written.

prior to this, the saint had immersed his entire work in the Indrayani river; the work miraculously reappeared after 13 days, proving their authenticity.

Sant Tukaram and his work are central to the Warkari sect spread across Maharashtra. His message about a casteless society and his denial of rituals had led to a social movement. Sant Tukaram is credited with starting the Wari pilgrimage..

Correct Answer : Option (A) - China

Note :

China has released a new geological map of the moon, which it says is the most detailed to date, registering even finer details of the lunar surface than mapped by the US in 2020.
 
The new map, which has details of craters and structures not charted before, will assist in further research of the moon, Chinese state media reported on 8th June 2022.
 
The United States Geological Survey (USGS) Astrogeology Science Centre had, for the first time, mapped and classified the entire lunar surface in collaboration with Nasa and the Lunar Planetary Institute in 2020.
 
That digital map showed the moon’s geology in, what the Science Centre described as, incredible detail at a scale of 1:5000000.
 
Chinese scientists, however, say they have done better.
 
China has released a new comprehensive geologic map of the moon to a scale of 1:2500000, the most detailed to date,” China’s national broadcaster, CGTN said in a brief report on 8th June 2022.
 
“The map includes 12,341 impact craters, 81 impact basins, 17 rock types and 14 types of structures, providing abundant information about geology of the moon and its evolution,” the report said.
 
The new map was first published in a Chinese science journal called the Science Bulletin a week ago.
 
“It is expected to make a great contribution to scientific research, exploration and landing site selection on the moon.”..

New York

Correct Answer : Option (D) - New York

Note :

In a world's first, the New York state legislature has passed the "right to repair" bill that will require digital electronics manufacturers to make parts, tools, information, and software available to consumers and independent repair shops.
 
The "Fair Repair Act" comes after federal pressure to enforce consumers' rights to repair and refurbish their purchased goods.
 
For independent repair shops, this news is huge as they will finally be able to compete with manufacturers, resisting the repair market consolidation manufacturers have created by restricting access to parts and tools.
 
In a recent survey, 59 per cent of independent repair shops said they might have to close their doors without the passage of 'Right to Repair'.
 
Self-repair groups like iFixit hailed the ruling, calling it "one giant leap for repairkind"..
