Pragati Jasuaj

  • Mumbai
  • A Brief about yourself and how you describe your own Personality and Persona.
  • I represent women of New India with deep cultural values of humanity and doing good for others along with confidence and aspirations to lead globally. Born and brought up in Nabha, a small town near Patiala city in Punjab, I thrive on our deeply embedded traditional values. At the same time, my management education in Mumbai and working across cities such as Bengaluru and Gurugram has instilled in me a new vigor to aspire for more. I am very cheerful and bubbly with my closed ones but would maintain poise in my professional life

  • Your Achievements that makes you feel high.
  • With the assistance of renowned doctors and a skilled physiotherapist, I successfully recovered from my health challenges. Life may present obstacles, but I embraced them as stepping-stones towards building a beautiful life. Additionally, I played a significant role in a film and a serial, which garnered appreciation from a wide audience. Furthermore, I achieved the first position in the Maharashtra state-level Abacus competition. Lastly, I emerged as the winner of the state-level dance championship.

  • Define the true beauty.
  • In my opinion, true beauty is a combination of qualities such as being kind, empathetic and having a pure heart. This kind of beauty spreads positivity and becomes a guiding light. Beauty comes from within, just like a beautiful garden that illuminates freshness. Moreover, recognizing our own worth and embracing our unique qualities are also important in understanding the true meaning of beauty.

  • What makes a complete, healthy and happy family for you?
  • A happy family is not defined by the number of its members but by the presence of positive vibes. When everyone loves each other, the house becomes a paradise. It is a place where positivity and love thrive. The collection of shared laughter, cherished memories, and warmth creates the sweet melodies that make a family complete in both health and happiness.

  • What is your favourite Idea of Holidaying?
  • Holidays are meant for relaxation and rejuvenation, allowing us to detach from routine and focus on self-understanding. Whether alone or with others, the idea is to enjoy yourself and come back with renewed strength. It's an opportunity to try new things, make friends, and appreciate simple pleasures. Ultimately, holidays should be simple, enriching experiences that teach us valuable lessons and bring happiness wherever we may be.

  • Why you are participating in Mrs India Queen of Substance?
  • As a participant in Mrs India Queen of Substance, I will have the opportunity to raise awareness and throw light on social, environmental, and humanitarian issues. It will give me the platform to speak up, share personal stories and inspire many. This pageant will become a pathway to add a hint of positive change in the society.

  • What bothers you most about what is happening in the country today?
  • India’s recent growth has been a significant achievement. My view is despite constituting half of India's population, women have not benefited proportionately from the country's economic prosperity. The declining state of women's rights in India concerns me. Gender inequality hinders women's access to education, employment, and leadership roles, with numerous examples highlighting this disparity.

  • The Quote or saying that encourages you?
  • Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.” – Henry Ford

  • What is true “Sportsmanship” for you?
  • Sportsmanship is all about playing with honesty and following the rules and guidelines. We learn important life lessons from sports. Life extends beyond sports, so losing shouldn't be taken too hard because winning or losing doesn’t matter. Instead, keep trying and enjoy the game. Good sportsmanship cultivates fairness and teaches values.
