MUMBAI: Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd.

Online Qualifiers: To be held online on the ZEE5 app and website resulting in the formation of 40000+ school teams with 2 champions per school

With the launch of a thoughtfully curated program Mind Wars, we aim to create the largest knowledge database that students can access throughout the year. It is our noble attempt to gamify knowledge and to create knowledge-based alternatives for entertainment for kids in their formative years.”

The launch event in Delhi, was followed by a quiz competition for 100+ schools from the capital city, with the quizmaster Mr. Kunal Savarkar, CEO, Xpress Minds Edutainment Pvt. Ltd. As a consultant to ZEE for this special initiative, Mr. Savarkar said, “For years, my partner Seema Chari and I wondered how we could get millions of students to become part of a knowledge and quizzing revolution. A chance meeting with the management at ZEE, resulted in the creation of this knowledge juggernaut. Thanks to the whole-hearted support of ZEE, our small step is turning into a giant leap.”

Mind Wars will host a database of more than 10,000 questions across the three content buckets – curriculum, general knowledge and current affairs. While the level of questions is for grade 6th to 10th, the platform will also be developed for higher age groups in its advanced stages.
