Hello friends, this is my first article for CCI. I had been wishing & wanting to write one so here I am writing it.
Before registering for CA course, I had heard so many things about it (difficult one, little expensive, need to be smart & intelligent etc. basically people have a notion (CA is not everyone’s cup of tea) & a wrong one, according to me. Also I would like to mention my family situation was not the best to do such a course but I never felt it, after listening so many things it became my ambition to become a CA & that day itself I took up the challenge & wanted to test my abilities with the course.
I & my brother have been from our childhood been under a good atmosphere as far as studies is concerned because if you have a person as capable as your mom or dad helping you with your studies, there is no such requirement for any kind of tuitions. One might think whether it is possible for a mother or father who not much educated to handle studies of English medium, so I would say “yes” because it was my mom who took all the troubles inspite of all house hold activities, I suppose it was her wish that she wanted us to do well in life & become a capable person, so hats off to her. From our childhood we understood & also learnt that if it is within you, one can definitely grow up & achieve.
So with some vision & hardwork we did well upto now inspite of various obstacles & if I think about it now I am proud that we never bogged down to anything or gave up & this is what life is all about, without such obstacles I don’t think life will be complete.
So when I started my CPT, within my friends group we decided to go for self study & I got 51%, not much to cheer about. Then I registered for PCC. For some 2 years my academics & article training was not going well, I was low on confidence & not positive about things. This wasn’t a good period for me but my hardwork never stopped. Even I couldn’t perform well in college exams. But hard times never last forever so I happy not to get restless during the period but one does get a little negative.
In Nov 2010 I gave my first attempt ,not so much to speak about & then I gave my 2nd attempt in may 2011. My first attempt was during the not so good time & with some health issues .A person with a good health is a rich & a happy person according to me. I had been facing some kind of health problems from my 12 std, so even during my CPT & also my 1st PCC attempt I had some or the other problem. It was my 3rd attempt in Nov 2011. I want to specify this that it was this period which changed more of my life(almost 6 months). A period which I gave my best during training & my principal says it always "A person performs well & gives its best during a pressure period”.
I was much positive & confident about things & so I believed this time I would clear my PCC whatever may be the situation. I finished with my work and was granted with some 40 days leave whereas I believed even 30 days would be enough but again I had fallen sick (the reason was I continuously faced problems even during the 6 mths I had spoken about).
So I was hospitalized & I recovered well but 10 days were gone during the period. This time around I did some smart study & I am proud to say that I did it this time around. I was so much positive about my results that I was so many times thinking & planning about my future.
So I would say even though life is not so easy still one should never lose hope or get bogged down by any kind of obstacles & the most important thing to be very much positive and confident because “Positiveness is a way of life”.
