“Research is an organized method of keeping you reasonably dissatisfied with what you have” ~Charles Kettering
It is rightly said that you discover yourself through the research of your work.
A Company secretary is a pathfinder for corporates for various legal solutions. A Company Secretary is a torch bearer to the Corporates for paving the way to complete & meaningful Corporate Governance. Corporate Governance comes from transparency, ethical execution and enhancing the stakeholders’ value. Corporate Governance is a barometer of a Corporate’s practices in running of a business, whether small or big. When the world is looking at Company Secretaries for guidance on achieving and observing the Corporate Governance, we need to equip with in depth knowledge and understanding on Governance. And, this will only come from intensive research and training. At ICSI-Centre for Corporate Governance, Research & Training (CCGRT), we aim at providing all opportunities to students and Members of our profession to make research & seek training and to enrich themselves in Corporate Governance & other allied areas.
If you observe the various programmes and initiatives of the CCGRT, you will understand that CCGRT is really implementing its core objective of research and training. This e-Bulletin ‘Chintanam’, which was started from April 2017, is the one of the steps taken this year 2017. We also started series called ‘Gyan Jyoti’ from last fortnight, wherein, we provide write-ups and research articles on various contemporary topics.
Governance is a part and parcel of our existence. The actual purpose of any governance is sustenance and prosperity of the governed subjects. Self-governance, family governance, corporate governance, state governance or for that matter any type of governance is mainly aimed at total welfare of the subordinates.
A one more initiative namely ‘Amrut Dhara’, has been started from 12th May, 2017. In ‘Amrut Dhara’, we are publishing the articles on Corporate Governance and Management from Ancient India & Indian Epic.
NECTOR (AMRUT) OF GOVERNANCE - “Though human being or any living entity doesn’t want to be governed by someone and wants to behave independently, only authentic and time tested governance makes life sustainable and prosperous. Thus, it can be termed as nectar, because it awards permanency to the perishable or destructible systems. However, when the intended purpose of providing sustainability and prosperity by governance is not achieved, it will be termed as poison, not nectar. This is the general experience in autocratic governance. But, any governance principle derived and implemented, based on Vedic scriptures, will be well accepted by one and all, irrespective of time and space, thus becoming truly the nectar.”
As stated in first issue of Chintanam, a Company Secretary is best equipped to guide the corporates for better corporate governance, transparency and enhancement of stakeholders’ value. At the same, time one has to understand the importance of research and training. We at CCGRT are aimed to sharpen the research & analytical abilities of our members. We also arrange the Residential MSOP in such a way that to-be members of our profession can start their journey with a glimpse of research & professionalism.
I request all Members come forward and submit articles & research papers at for further publication in ‘Chintanam’, ‘Gyan Jyoti’ & ‘ Amrut Dhara’.
Let be an Advisor~pathfinder~problem solver~ and complete Governance professional.
Happy Vision….Keep Sharing….Explore new avenues…
