I am Akanksha, I've just cleared CA Finals with AIR 42, and currently I am working with IRDA as an Assistant Director.
During the 5 years of study there was not much time to interact on a social platform, but now when I have found some time for myself, I would like to share something with you people!
When I had registered for CA PE-I, I thought I was getting started with my career oriented studies, then on entering the second stage, PE-II (now called IPCC/PCC), I realised it was not just a career but a DREAM; a dream that needed a lot of hardwork and patience to come true, the course was extensive, but interesting, and at the same time, a hard nut to crack, but thanks to my teacher, Dr. SAURABH N. GAUR Sir, who made everything so easy that the hard curriculum became truly enjoyable, and when I secured AIR12 in the first attempt itself, I discovered that the Hard Nut tasted really YUMMY!!!
After PE-II, the real adventure started- ARTICLESHIP !!! When I went to submit my CV, I was so excited- Pehli baar kisi CA se milna tha Bhai!- CV was accepted and my training started off at what I call the BEST PLACE iN THE WORLD!!!- Mera PYARA office, which I miss a lot now!
Most of the CA students take articleship as a burden but believe me friends, its a golden opportunity to learn not just the work of professionals but also to groom up your personality!! "Articleship" forms a unique feature of the CA Curriculum which gives the CA Students a forum to interact with people belonging to different backgrounds, it teaches you how to manage practical situations and more importantly, the ATTITUDES of people you deal with in your routine life!! Articleship gives you the first insight into the LIFESTYLE that Chartered Accountancy is!!
Then there was Final, I call it the EDGE, because once you cross this threshold you enter into a completely NEW WORLD!!
Jab tak pass nai hote there is so much of tension, but once you pass, Life becomes so peaceful, so Calm, and Ofcourse!! SO ROYAL, People admire you, the job industry welcomes you with open arms, you are now a part of the MOST SOUGHT AFTER COMMUNITY OF INDIA- "THE CA FRATERNITY", you now belong to the rare species called Chartered Accountants!!
On clearing Final along with AIR42, it was a whole new world for me too, and it was now, that I realized that CA is not just a Professional Degree, its A LIFESTYLE!!!!!!!!
It makes me different from others, all thanks to my teacher, SAURABH SIR, who was my GUIDE through out my journey into this new world.
Friends, just put in your best, and clear your exams as quickly as possible, an awesome world awaits your arrival!!! BEST OF LUCK and YES! welcome to the LIFESTYLE called CA!!!
