CA, a prefix which requires a lot of passion, hard work and hell lot of discipline. The inspiration to become a Chartered Accountant came from my sister, Payal Maheshwari who is also a Chartered Accountant when I was in 12th in 2008 .Started my journey into this profession from 2009 by clearing CPT, then cleared IPCC in 2010 and then came the most crucial and important phase for every Chartered Accountant – Articleship. A good exposure into various areas, be it tax, audit, or ROC is very important I did my articleship from P.Gaggar and Associates, Guwahati. These 3 years of articleship actually tests your level of patience and hard work. During those 3 years, there have been lot of incidents when your moral goes down, when people around you comes and says you will not be able to crack CA, when people say it is not your cup of tea. But Trust me friends, Its only your determination, your zeal to touch the zeneith of success motivates you till the end to believe that you can and you will. Then came the time for my CA Finals in May 2013. The only thing which sets you apart from others is how you study. When I say others that I studied for 4 months and cleared at one go with 60%, they stare me with eyes wide open and start questioning how did you manage? Is 4 months sufficient?? . The only answer is apart from hard work, what matters is how smartly you study. Smart study is very important, how well you prepare yourself to cover your course a day before the exam.16th July,2013 was the date when my results got declared, one of the most happiest days of my life.
I got placed with ITC Limited on 9th September from Kolkata Campus, another life changing day for me. Its been 1 year with the company. This one year has taught many important lessons of life. I have learnt to be more dedicated and responsible towards my work. I don’t think that job should be done just for the 10 am to 6 pm and a salary cheque at month end. One should enjoy doing the work with a passion. Staying away from family has taught me to become more independent. Meeting people from different states taught me to adjust in every situation. At the end, I would like to conclude by saying:
“BELIEVE IN KARMA – DO GOOD AND AUTOMATICALLY GOOD THINGS WILL HAPPEN IN YOUR LIFE.”
