A Professional Degree and a Business Mind !
                                                                           By Personality Development Study Group
  A person standing outside a skyscraper on a busy
  street of Delhi, perplexingly looks up to find his
  Chartered Accountant’s Office. But all he finds are
  big, flashy and colourful billboards and banners
  with advertisements from all sorts of Companies.
  Only after putting on his glasses and with a
  scrutinising eye does he find a small, simple
  display board stating – “M/s ABCD and Company,
  Chartered Accountants” !


  Somehow he reaches the office & the first question he asks his CA is – Why don’t you put up a bigger,
  flashier board to locate you easily?

  Chartered Accountants, as most other professional practising their profession, are bound by limitations and
  restriction in advertisements imposed by Code of Ethics. Have you ever wondered Why?

  This is so because it is expected that Professional degree holders should work in pull-mode rather than
  push-mode, wherein their clients should approach them for getting the work done rather than the other
  way round.

  In such a case it is very difficult for young professionals to establish themselves. Here are some of the
  methods which professionals may use to market themselves :

   1. Advise your corporate clients but learn professionalism in return from them, since they generally have more
      organised system of work flow than a small CA office.
   2. Add on more skills in addition to your professional degree. You may have expert knowledge but lack the
      skill of publically sharing it. If so, then learn the art of speaking and presentation from someone who is an
      expert in this field.
   3. Have a dedicated person in your team to socialise and cater to special needs of the client. There is pending
      official work but there is a corporate social gathering exactly at the same time, potentially to earn new clients.
      Having a specialised Public Relation professional may come to your rescue at this time.
   4. Do more than what is expected but less than what is not allowable. You are required to make a statutory
      audit report, put in some more hard work and prepare a complimentary additional report pointing out other
      anomalies to your Client.
   5. If you commit then perform the work at any cost. There is no alternative to genuine hard work. Every
      deadline that you meet does make a positive impact.
   6. Appreciate results and rewards. Employees and colleagues are your assets and should be treated carefully
      and with positive demeanour.
   7. Always have a vision. There is no alternative to planning. Make a long-term as well as a short-term plan with
      a clear vision and also communicate it clearly to all in the organisation.
   8. Learn best-practices. Set benchmarks of performance on the basis of Industry norms and improve your
       standards.

   A typical young Chartered Accountant generally develops, on the basis of his training, a negative approach
   of finding errors in Client’s work (though this is needed during auditing) but it should also be kept in mind
   that such negative thinking should not hinder him from thinking positively about other aspects of work !

  Innovative Thinking –                          A Solution Finder !                              By CA Kamna Ladwani
 We all have heard the story of the Race between Tortoise and
                                                                                The Contributor is a member of ICAI and
 the Hare, which taught us; that slow and steady wins the race.
                                                                                subscriber to Auditing Study Group of
 But today let’s imagine ourselves to be either that hare or that
 tortoise and relearn the moral of the story !                                  Daksham. She can be reached at
 Read this article; great tips of Marketing and Professional                    kamnaladwani@hotmail.com
 Development tips to be learnt !

 The new version of the story:-
 The Hare was disappointed at losing the race and he did some
 Defect Prevention (Root Cause Analysis). He realised that he’d
 lost the race only because he had been overconfident and
 careless. If he had not taken things for granted, there’s no way
 the tortoise could have beaten him. So he challenged the
 tortoise to another race. The tortoise agreed. This time, the hare
 went all out and ran without stopping from start to finish. He
 won by several miles.

    MORAL – “Fast” and “Consistent” always beat the slow and the steady. If you have two people in your
    organization, one slow, methodical and reliable and the other fast and still reliable then the fast and the reliable
    one will consistently climb the organizational ladder faster that the slow person. It’s good to be slow and steady
    but it’s better to be fast and reliable !

   But the story doesn’t end here.
   The tortoise did some thinking this time, and realised that there’s no way he can beat the hare in a
   race the way it was currently formatted. He thought for a while, and then challenged the hare to
   another race, but on a slightly different route. The hare agreed. They started off. In keeping with his
   self-made commitment to be consistently fast, the hare took off and ran at top speed until he came
   to a broad river. The finishing line was a couple of kilometres on the other side of the river. The
   hare sat there wondering what to do. In the meantime the tortoise trundled along, got into the
   river, swam to the opposite bank, continued walking and finished the race.


    MORAL – First identify your Core Competency and then change the playing field to suit your core
    competency. In an organization, if you are a good speaker make sure that you create opportunities to give
    presentations that enable the senior management to notice you. Working to your strengths will not only get
    you noticed but will also create opportunities for growth and advancements.


     The story still hasn’t ended.      Interested in reading more? Go to page 10 of this Newsletter.

 On the more positive side, leaders may have power because they're experts in their fields, or because their
 team members admire them. People with these types of power don't necessarily have formal leadership
 roles, but they influence others effectively because of their skills and personal qualities. And when a
 leadership position opens up, they'll probably be the first to be considered for promotion.

How they broke our
Vedic BackBone By CA Gandharv Sharma
“I am an English speaking person & I feel proud to
be one” isn’t this is a common statement that you
hear frequently these days? People feel proud to talk
in English and sometimes even ignore and feel shy
to talk in their mother tongue.

But the truth is that there are 200+ countries but in
only 12 countries of the world; English is the main
language; other 182 countries have got their own
different mother tongue. So how can English be
our International language?

 Also English language has copied most of the words from other languages; it has hardly got its own original
 words. English language got 12,000 words half of it has been copied from other languages.

 Whereas on the other hand, Hindi language got the maximum words 75,000 +, Marathi language got 48,000 +,
 Gujarati language got 40,000 +, Telugu, Kannada, Punjabi, etc. are our mother tongue & we shall be proud of our
 mother tongue, further, it is hard to count the number of words in Sanskrit or Tamil, which are the roots of all
 other languages.
 There were more than 1,50,000 Vedic Colleges (Higher Learning Institute) in Madras, this was proved in a survey
 in 1835, & the number of villages were 1,57,000 according the British Survey & Revenue reports, all these colleges
 were mainly for surgery & 1,500 colleges for M.Sc. degree (which is an English term which was something else
 those days), politics, arts etc.

 According to 1835 survey, Lord McCauley said we should break the back bone of Bharata by removing Vedic
 education system & introducing English education to de-motivate this country (View the picture)

    About 97% of world languages have been directly or indirectly influenced by Sanskrit. (Ref: UNO).

    Sanskrit is the best computer friendly language. (Ref: Forbes Magazine July 1987). NASA scientist reports that America is
     creating 6th and 7th generation super computers based on Sanskrit language.

    The language is rich in most advanced science, contained in their books called Vedas, Upanishads, Shruti, Smriti, Puranas,
     Mahabharata, Ramayana etc.(Ref: Russian State University, NASA has 60,000 palm leaf manuscripts, which they are studying.)

    James Junior School, London, has made Sanskrit compulsory.

    Research has shown that the phonetics of this language has roots in various energy points of the body and reading, speaking
     or reciting Sanskrit stimulates these points and raises the energy levels.

    Sanskrit is the only language, which uses all the nerves of the tongue. By its pronunciation energy points in the body are
     activated that causes the blood circulation to improve with the enhanced brain functioning and higher energy levels, ensures
     better health. Blood Pressure, diabetes, cholesterol etc. are controlled. (Ref: American Hindu University)

    IT IS NOT JUST A LANGUAGE. Sanskrit is the primordial conduit between Human Thought and the Soul; Physics and
     Metaphysics; Subtle and Gross; Culture and Art; Nature and its Author; Created and the Creator.
