Student management committee writes
My Dear students,
Swami Vivekananda once said, “What is education? Is it book learning? No. Is it diverse knowledge? Not even that. The training by which the current and expression of will are brought under control and become fruitful is called education”.
It is so true as far as the diversified activities of students’ association is concerned. Being deep into and being actively into the activities of Students’ Association of Eastern Regional Office of our Esteemed Institute, I have been thoroughly following this particular saying by Swami Vivekananda.
Due to Lok Sabha General Elections – 2019, all the CA examinations of the CPT, IPCC / Intermediate and Final Examinations originally scheduled to be held between 2nd May, 2019 and 22nd May, 2019 had to be postponed and rescheduled between 27th May, 2019 and 16thJune, 2019, simultaneously throughout India and abroad as well. As a Regional Council Member, EICASA Chairman and one of the Examination coordinator for Kolkata and Howrah Centres, I thought it prudent to visit some Examination Centres to check the deficiency of facilities for the conduct of CA Examinations and I visited a series of examination centres. On visit, I found no deficiency of facilities for the conduct of CA Examinations. I experienced at one of the exam centre, one candidate had viral fever and he was properly relocated to Library of that school for the benefit of the candidate as well as other students. While in another exam centre, one candidate was unconscious due to scorching heat and she was immediately given glass of Glucon –D water every 5 minute and the candidate returned to normalcy within 15 minutes. Thus the overall response was satisfactory.
Considering the Examination period, activities of EICASA were deliberately kept at low level and limited number of programs were conducted. 2nd Mock Test for CPT students was held on 9th June, 2019, In addition to that, two more important programs were held. First, the Summer Indoor Sports 2019 at Burra Bazar Yuvak Sabha on 23rd June 2019, wherein Volley ball, table Tennis, Badminton, Carrom and Chess competition were held. Second, the Education Tour to Raj Bhawan, Kolkata was organised on 27th June, 2019, wherein visit to the different halls, rooms, library was made and an interactive session with H.E. Governor Sri K. N.Tripathi was held.
The month of July will be full of programs and hectic schedules of organisational work for Students National Conference – 2019, which is a signature event of EICASA. In the series, first one is CA Day on 1st July, wherein there will be flag hoisting at both the premises, Blood Donation camp at Russel Street office, Tree plantation out side the Kasba building and in evening there will be a program on awareness about enabling Divyang, pledging of eyes and organs by Saksham, an NGO. All the students are requested to join in the programs enmass. On 14th July 2019, Sunday, branch level talent search elocution & quiz contest has been organised by EICASA at R. Singhee Hall, Kolkata. All the Students are requested to participate in large number as well as to witness the competitions. An educational Tour is being planned for visit to Reserve Bank of India, Eastern Zone Headquarter at Kolkata.
Students National Conference -2019, has been scheduled on 17th & 18th August 2019 at Vidya Mandir, Kolkata, please register online at htttps://bosactivities.icai.org and offline both at EIRC Russell Street and EIRC Kasba. Moreover, EICASA is waiting for you as a paper contributor as well as volunteer for the Conference.
With lots of love,
CA Hari Ram Agarwal
