People talk of the big 4 accounting firms. Sadly, there is no Indian firm there. By 2022, let us have a big 8, where 4 firms are Indian.

#Your signature carries immense faith, please do not break that trust that is placed on you.

#Like the lawyers did during the freedom struggle, I urge the CAs to take the lead in the journey towards India's economic growth.

#We will always remember how the community of professionals took a lead during the freedom struggle of India.

#On one hand, there is a Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan and there is a movement to clean the nation from the menace of corruption.
