During this period I came across hundreds of chartered accountants and CA students and observed that only a few who has choose not to seek job or to enter into traditional practice but have taken any different option.

The most common reply was “Sir mere parents bolte hai ki CA bangaya hai to practice start kar kaha business karega and if you don’t have courage to start practice seek a job, ” Jagodia said.
