“SICASA” or “SICASA Kozhikode” is always an emotion to those who have been part of it. Our late former President of India Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam has always said dream high, follow and chase it until you achieve it. To be part of SICASA has always been a top priority and now addressing a grander crowd as SICASA Chairman is a dream come true moment.

First two weeks of April can be described as the most hectic weeks for a Chartered Accountant’s firm, but it comes out to be the most pleasant week in terms of hectic schedule. The Lockdown series on account of Covid’19 pandemic has almost redrafted our life style and the priorities. It has interrupted the economy to a great extent wherein the Central government has announced relief packages to the tune of 20 Lakhs Crore which is roughly 10% of India’s GDP.

The ICAI - Head office had come out with various relaxations and initiatives in-terms of course and also by promoting free digital based online coaching for IPCC and Final Students.

SICASA Committee for the year 2020-21 was constituted amongst this pandemic and since then all the activities of the SICASA has been through the social media platforms and we are eagerly waiting that the episode of this Pandemic comes to an end at earliest possible. Almost all the SICASA’s had organized various Quarantine talent contests and received good feedbacks and healthy criticism’s.

We have also launched online Study circle through our youtube channel on student picked topics. Request all the students to visit youtube channel and get enlightened on those areas and also request everyone to grab this opportunity by sharing your inputs on your favourite topic and to showcase your presentation and communication skills to inspire many. My favourite and experienced quote says:

“It’s only after you’ve stepped outside your comfort zone that you begin to change, grow, and transform.” QC: Roy T. Bennett.

I also take this opportunity to invite suggestions from the students to improve ourselves better and we both are benefited.

Wishing you all a healthy and prosperous days ahead.
