Mumbai: Over 2.4 million young minds, across 23400+ schools in India participated for Season 4 of India’s biggest quiz show Discovery Super School League (DSSL) which recently witnessed the finale of the season hosted by everyone’s favorite Mini Mathur and Cyrus Sahukar. Unraveling their potential with their steady brains and unparalleled intellect, ‘Maharashtra Masterminds’ with team members of Saburendu Ghosh from Mumbai, Shailesh Shivaji Musale from Buldhana and Sarang Vinayak Thakare from Amravati emerged as the winners of the fourth season of DSSL. In partnership with BYJU’S, the winners and their school principals won a once-in-a-lifetime chance to go on an all-expenses paid trip to NASA, an experience people across the nation dream of but can rarely attain.
Additionally, the top three teams including Maharashtra Masterminds, ‘Himachal Pradesh Mavericks’ who stood second and ‘Arunachal Pradesh Aces’ who finished in the second runner up position also received a generous cash prize and national recognition by appearing on Discovery Channel. After an incredibly successful run, DSSL is back with a bang with season 5! Higher the stakes, higher the prizes. The latest season has commenced ground operations of the National level school quiz. With the motto ‘Seekh ke Samjho, samajh ke jeeto’, aims to target 10 million students across 2000+ cities in a new hybrid format.
Ecstatic on their victory, ‘Maharashtra Masterminds’ said, “We’re so grateful to Discovery and BYJU’S for granting us this platform to showcase our talent. It was a life-changing experience and one we’ll cherish forever. Through the quiz we channelized our critical thinking skills and uncovered potential, even we didn’t know we had. Plus, very rarely does someone have the incredible opportunity to witness the NASA grounds in real life. This competition allowed us to achieve this lifelong dream.”
