Ca or cfa?

i've cleared cfa level 1 last year and will be giving CFA level 2 this june and i'm confident of clearing this. On the other hand, i will get my first final attempt in may/june 2014 which is the same time i will have CFA level 3 exams. I don't think i'll be able to clear both of them at the same time(the exams might even clash). Today after reading this, my faith on this career has sunk to new lows. I mean if a person securing first rank on all india basis earns a lakh pm, what can i expect( I might pass in the first attempt but i don't even dream of getting a rank)

So guys suggest me what do you think is promising , CA or CFA? One thing to remember though is, I don't have 4 years of work experience for earning cfa charter while my CA articles will be completed by august 2014, so i'll just be a cfa level 3 cleared candidate.
