I am a Chartered Accountant and Insolvency Professional - Jeena Agrawal. I have been born and brought up in Indore(M.P.). I completed my CA in 1999. Just like it is said, success has no shortcuts, so completing CA was also not an easy task. It took 3 attempts to clear CA final.
I got married soon after CA completion. While settling in the family, raising my son, there was a gap in CA practice of almost 3-4 years. Now, while writing about that time, I realized that it was really difficult to restart things afresh. But then, when you aspire for something, you work hard to achieve it. Chartered Accountancy is a very precious degree, so I couldn't just let it go to waste.
So, I started practicing and established my proprietary firm.Took guidance from senior members of the profession. Updating myself was very much needed.
Gradually, practice got established in varied areas of audit and taxation. In order to further enhance my skills in the profession, from time to time, I did various certificate courses from ICAI, like DISA,FAFD,CCCAB. All these courses were very much helpful.
During all these 20 years as a practicing CA, I did various statutory audits and concurrent audits of various banks, internal control and system audits for various entities. I had a great inclination towards academics. In order to fulfill this flair, I got associated with various colleges as a guest faculty. I always feel that if one remains in the company of youngsters, then zeal for new opportunities and work areas is also accomplished. It gives a sense of satisfaction, when I am invited by colleges for the viva of MBA and BBA students and by clients, to conduct interviews for recruitment. All thanks to CA qualification.
Recently started practicing in an upcoming new area, as an Insolvency Professional.This is also a challenging area of practice for senior professionals .
Other than being a professional, I am fond of gardening. I also work as a social worker. We also formed an NGO society named JOR, which works actively, in Indore for betterment of society. I have donated blood for 50+ times and my target is to do 100 donations. By this write up, I would like to inform, that it is a myth that by blood donation, physical weakness arises.
The journey has been satisfactory till now.
But I have miles to go..
This reminds me of the very famous phrase by Robert Frost, in his poem - Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening. These lines point to the realization of the poet regarding his duties and responsibilities to fulfill before going to sleep:
“The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep…”
