Teachers’ Day Celebration - September 5, 2016: “My Principal - My Teacher” 


Articled/ Practical Training is the core to CA Curriculum and is its back bone. The Principal of Articled Trainee is the most important GURU/ Teacher for a CA student. Apart from academics, as the Principal, he imparts practical training on various areas such as auditing, law, accounting, management and so on. He teaches inter personal skills, guides for career growth and grooms articles to be an all rounded professional. The articled training is probably the only phase where a student has the same teacher for 3 years! The Principal – Article student is often known as a bond is for life – it transforms life’s and careers of budding Chartered Accountants. 

Articled Training is an embodiment of Guru-Shishya Parampara (गुरु – शिष्य परम्परा) in the modern day world where the student gets practical on-the-job training in the Gurukul (गुरुकुल) of the Principal called CA Firm. In this Guru-Shishya parampara of articled training, the Principal gets an opportunity to train the sishya on the fine art of practicing the profession of Chartered Accountancy. The Principal teaches finer and applied nuances of the profession and ensures that his articled trainees succeed in life by passing exams and handling professional work. He is actually the guru/ teacher who brings to the profession successful Chartered Accountants, like himself throughout his career of over 40 years, wherein it is estimated that about 100 Chartered Accountants are trained and developed by him! The articled training is learning by doing and generally generates a lifetime bond of experience sharing. It is hence rightly said that: 

Hindi English Meaning
गुरु र्ब्रह्मा गुरु र्विष्णुः
गुरुर्देवो महेश्वरः। गुरु स्साक्षात् परब्रह्म 
तस्मै श्रीगुरवे नमः ॥
Guruur Brahmaa Guruur Vishnuh Guruur devo Maheshvarah। Guruus Saakshaat Parabrahma Tasmai Shrii Gurave Namah॥ Guru is truly, the representative of Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwarah. He creates, sustains knowledge and destroys the weeds of ignorance. I salute such a Guru.
  Sarva Sruti Shiroratna Viraajita Padambujaha Vedaantaambuja Sooryo Yah Tasmai Sri Gurave Namaha. That Guru who is the ocean of the Srutis (Vedas), the Sun of knowledge (who can destroy our ignorance with these rays), I salute such a Guru.

A teacher is like a potter who gives a perfect shape to his student. The important role played by the Principal is very well appreciated by the Chartered Accountants and aspiring CA Students. The Institute proposes to celebrate the great occasion of Teachers’ Day on September 5, 2016 to strengthen the relationship and bond between Articles and their Principal and also to ensure that Chartered Accountants pay respect due to their Principal. The objective is to strengthen the lifetime bond that has been fostered over the three years period of Article Training. 

As we all appreciate, once a student greets his Principal as his Teacher, the Principal will in turn ensure that his Students learns the work very well, learns values and quality of article training shall improve. Achieving the Teacher status automatically changes the behavior, attitude and attention that we give to our students. Every Principal envies to be in that position. We all need to give, acknowledge and reserve the teacher status for our Principal - it is noble and every Principal is genuinely a teacher. On this Teachers Day, all Students shall to connect with our Principal and all CAs shall connect back to their Principals. This shall be our resolve and earnest endeavor. 

On Teachers’ Day, a Principal has a dual role to play. He has been an article and is now a Principal and can well appreciate this relationship. On one hand, as an article, he would always be filled with thankfulness for continuous knowledge and experience shared by his principal and on the other, he would keep inspiring hope and instilling the love for learning to ensure that his articles turn out to be successful professionals. Accordingly, the following initiatives have been planned for this day: 

Activity Particulars
1. Message/Article in “The Chartered Accountant” and “The Chartered Accountant Student” Highlighting the importance of Teachers Day for Chartered Accountants and Students with a request to felicitate their Principals
2. Mass Mails & SMS to Chartered Accountants and Article Trainees Highlighting the importance of Teachers Day for Chartered Accountants and Students with a request to felicitate their Principals
3. SMS Quotes and e-Cards to felicitate Teacher/ Principal The best way a शिष्य/ Student can pay his/ her guru/ Principal the gurudakshina (गुरु दक्षिना) for helping them to achieve their goal is to remember, respectfully appreciate and felicitating him/ her on this day. To enable the Chartered Accountants and Students to express their gratitude towards their Principals, e-cards and SMS quotes are made available at the end of this announcement.
4. Teachers Day Programmes at Regional/ Branch Offices of the Institute and at Offices of Chartered Accountants The event is also being celebrated across the country at our Regional Councils and Branches and also at CA Firms. Students are requested to join these programmes.
5. Teachers Day Online Event The BoS is going to also organize a Teachers Day Online Event, the link for which would be updated here.

I request all Chartered Accountants and CA Students to actively participate in aforementioned initiatives of the Institute to strengthen the bond, affiliation and goodwill for the profession to grow by leaps and bounds.
