Our Story


I, Pratiiti, intrigue your mind. Some of you are very true upto an extent when you correlate with Prtiit means Aabhas, but I’m unique & different. I represent Vishwas i.e.confidence. Yes, I do represent the Phoenix, from classical mythology, a unique bird of Arabian desert that burned itself on a funeral pyre every five or six centuries and rose from the ashes with renewed youth. Yes, I do represent the ‘resilience’ – the most important factor in life for sustenance. This resilience is the state of mind and rotates and/or revolves around Psychology of each human being. History will corroborate that societies have survived because of resilience only.

Pratiiti Luminaries promises to put best efforts to luminate your own confidence. We believe that your internal strength is vital for your sustenance i.e. resilience. We facilitate the human beings to achieve confidence so that they can achieve the goal of happiness in life. That’s why our catchphrase or slogan resonates our values –“Belief in the power of self”. We try to be truly global by acknowledging the existence of different mythologies across the world. We would like to play the role of Jamwant – from Hindu philosophy – who reminded Hanumanji his hidden powers which would help him cross the ocean in single leap.

The brain & colourful internal parts in the design reflects multiple thoughts. The ripples in white around the brain & thoughts depicts our endeavours, through which, farther one travels achieves calm, compose & tranquillity – again the bedrock of happy life.
