Our journey like the journey of a butterfly was full of hardships and struggle. But when the day arrives for the butterfly to finally spread its luminous wings and take to the sky, it all seems worth it. It all seems wondrous. Our metamorphosis has been similar.
Born in 1937 in Karachi in the pre-partisan India, Mr. Dwarkadas Chandumal Tulsiani had the audacity and belief to venture into the family business of custom-made jewelry, following the footsteps of his father.
Post partition, the family made yet another life-altering decision – to move to Mumbai. It was a step back, in the sense that we had to start over, but in a way, it was a step forward. We were in Mumbai, the city of dreams. Being an ingenious entrepreneur and an extremely industrious man, he quickly garnered a loyal customer base.

I put 'we will one up them' in italics because the phrase sounds wrong, or at least awkward, but I don't know the idiom enough to correct it.
Also, note the commas in 'Our journey, like the journey of a butterfly, was full of hardships and struggle' - they are hard to notice in the correction.
