Hi Aditya,

Nice to make your acquaintance. :)

Both sentences convey the same meaning and both are correctly written. :)

For parallelism, you want to either repeat the preposition or only use it once. You will break the parallelism of a sentence if you use it inconsistently. Let me illustrate with a simple example:

Correct: The goal is to eat, to sleep, and to be happy.

Correct: The goal is to eat, sleep, and be happy.

Incorrect: The goal is to eat, sleep, and to be happy.

Incorrect: The goal is to eat, to sleep, and be happy.

Does this help?

Let me know if I can clarify further. :)
