President's Message - CS (Dr.) Shyam Agrawal

President ICSI

August, 2017

My Valued ICSI Members

In this month all of my fellow countrymen will be celebrating the most coveted day for our country; the auspicious 71st Swatantra Diwas (Independence Day) as well as 75th anniversary of Bharat Chodo Andolan (Quit India Movement). The struggle of freedom was fought rigorously for so many decades, and generations sacrificed their lives and youth, some of them even spending their whole lives behind bars. Today, while penning my views down on this sacred occasion, I pay my respect, greetings and homage to all such patriots who laid their lives so that we can live independent in our country. Along with, I deem it as our core duty to take a solemn pledge of working whole-heartedly for the welfare of our Mother India and the welfare of its citizens.

This is also an occasion when we have to contribute to rebuild and refine national character. Hon’ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave a clarion call on 75th anniversary of ‘Bharat ChodoAndolan’ to get the country rid of corruption, poverty and illiteracy and create New India by 2022. He inspired countrymen to reignite the spirit of 1942 and work by imbibing the spirit of ‘Sankalp se Siddhi tak’ (commitment to fulfilment) for the period 2017-2022. Let us take a Sankalp (pledge) to get our country rid of all evils cited by our Prime Minister. We did not get an opportunity to ‘die’ for the country but we have the opportunity to ‘live’ for the country. May the Tri-Color of our country fly very high. Happy Independence Day 2017!!

I am further proud to share that ICSI’s way of paying tribute to the Nation and to the most coveted Indian educationist Dr. Abdul Kalam this year is bidding farewell to an age old legacy of British Empire in India i.e. Ceremonial Victorian robes and hoods worn during our Convocation ceremonies and adopting our ethnic Indian attire made of our ‘Signature Fabric Khadi’ this year onwards. This was need of the hour indeed and a much expected initiative. I feel content that the response given to this patriotic drive by our revered stakeholders was massive and our new members were exhilarated with the spirit of Nationalism as they adorned this new ethnic attire in convocations held this year. We have been and we will keep leading by example for the cause of our Nation always. There are many such initiatives in the pipeline.

My dear colleagues......you are a member of an Institute that is making its exemplary contribution towards Nation Building by holding the torch of Corporate Governance Profession in India high since the last 49 years. This year, in the month of October, we would be commemorating ourpropitious Golden Jubilee as we enter the 50th year of our existence. I am glad to share with you all that Hon’ble Prime Minister Sh. Narendra Modi has extended his gracious consent to inaugurate the celebrations meant to mark the beginning of this Golden Jubilee ‘in person’ on 4th October 2017. Though, we are making every endeavour to make this event historical, yet, we also firmly believe that your invaluable and innovative inputs may make these celebrations even glorious. Therefore, we cordially invite your creative suggestions and innovative ideas for the same. You may please send the same to my office at the earliest. Read more...
