I am this CA and I’m not the ONLY ONE
“I am a CA and I Play Guitar”
“I am a CA and I Party Hard”
“I am a CA and I love to Travel”
“I am this CA and I’m not the ONLY ONE”
The above statements might appear Void ab initio, a paradox or an oxymoron but it is nothing more than a fallacy. We at CA Diaries intend to change this very perception. We have lived our lives in clichés. We never questioned, we never explored.. We followed. But today we dare to break these shackles and set ourselves free. Today we dare to Dream.
A Chartered Accountant is generally perceived to be a highly intellectual and intelligent and industrious individual, whose life revolves around the numbers, finance and laws. As CA students we are forced to be the part of monotony of the Six-month cycle. The humdinger routine deprives us to follow our passions. Even if we have the streak the LKK – Log Kya Kahenge syndrome kills it.
In my interaction with almost 20 thousand Chartered Accountants and students over the last 5 years, I established that each one of them were spirited and creative in their own way. Perhaps, they were still stuck in the well, like all others and me … we are all the proverbial Koop Manduk – The Frog in the well.
Thus came together a dozen Chartered Accountants to express themselves and CA Diaries was born. A platform to celebrate the other side of Chartered Accountant. To celebrate who they really are and not what has been bestowed upon them. It has been a fascinating journey so far. Each day we come across exceptional characters, mavericks, philosophers, musicians, magicians, sportsman, writers, artists, travellers … and the one common thread that binds them all – These are all Chartered Accountants. Our tribe is growing. We want to change the way we are perceived. We want to Dream and follow our passion.
CA Diaries is the voice of all such industrious Chartered Accountants and CA Students who live their life in the anonymity of Correspondence. It is an effort to have more correspondence with such anonymity. A platform where we feature CA’s and students who are creative, those creating change, those aspiring to bring change and those who have brought change. We celebrate the perseverance, grit and determination of such individuals. It is an effort to inspire the entire CA Fraternity as we feature people who are one of us. People who are like us and the ones we can relate to and reach out. It is our endeavor to set standards different from Accounting and auditing. It is a tribute to all the Chartered Accountants and CA Students who have shown exemplary ethics, integrity and discipline. It is a tribute to everyone who has waited at ITO. It is a tribute to every one who is Waiting at ITO.
