Chairman’s Message

“Let me light my lamp, says the star and never debate if it will help to remove the darkness” – Tagore

Dear Esteemed Colleagues,

It is indeed a great honor to be elected as the Chairman of Beawar Branch of CIRC of ICAI. I would like to extend my heartily gratitude for reposing confidence in me by handing over the baton of Leadership of Beawar Branch which I take with folded hand and address you for the first time as Chairman & as 5th Chairman of Illustrious Beawar Branch of ICAI.

Keeping the above quote in my mind I just want to start my message by sharing a story of the little boy and the starfish which David McNally writes thus in his book ‘Even Eagles Need a Push’.

“…… Loren E. Eiseley talks of the day when he was walking along a sandy beach where thousands of starfish had been washed up on the shore. He noticed a boy picking up the starfish one by one and throwing them back into the ocean. Eisely observed the boy for a few minutes and then asked what he was doing. The boy replied that he was returning the starfish to the sea otherwise they would die.

Eisely then asked how saving a few, when so many were doomed, would make any difference whatsoever? The boy picked up a starfish and as he threw it back said. “It’s going to make a lot of difference to this one.”

I believe that we can certainly make a difference at least in a few lives in our lifetime.

My new responsibility brings both opportunity and challenges. But I hope that I will continue to enjoy your faith, affection, love & support and I have no doubt that we can reach our collective goals together. In words of Robert F. Kennedy:

“Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped.”

I was fortunate enough to worked with Dynamic Past Chairmen CA. M.C. Bhandari, CA K.C. Doshi, CA Sanjay Mehta, CA Arvind Jain in different capacity and learn a lot from their working style which will be a memorable experience for me in coming year and will help me in discharging the pious duty assigned to me.

I would like to welcome the newly elected President CA K.Raghu and the Vice President CA Manoj Fadnis. Both are very talented person and would definitely guide our nobel profession to new heights. I also congratulate CA Nitish Aggarwal on elected as Chairman of Central India Regional Council for the year 20013-14. I hope under their leadership our profession will attain highest level of capability, performance, impact and credibility.

With great sense of responsibility , We have various programs planned in the upcoming year for members and students and will share with you such programs from time to time and at the same time will invite suggestion from all of you to make every programs and events a grand success. As the saying goes, coming together is beginning, keeping together is progress and working together is success.

I would like to share with you some of the notable development which took place during the month:
