Hi Folks
The last 3 weeks were marked with several celebrations or ‘Days’ as they are called. 5th September was ‘Teachers Day’ commemorating our former President, Dr. Radhakrishnan’s birthday. 8th September was World Literacy Day and 15th September was Engineers Day in the memory of Sir M Vishweshwariah, the doyen of Indian Engineering. 17th was celebrated as Ganesh Chathurthi,
the Lord of Learning ……
all relating to literacy and education in one way or the other. However as someone said “The aim of education is the knowledge, not of facts, but of values.” No wonder it is Education that maketh a Man and not mere Literacy.
30th September may well be marked as Shareholders Day since in India, this is the last day available under the law to convene the Annual General Meeting of a Company to approve financial statements and appoint auditors. Needless to say all the CAs and CSs are literally ‘burning the midnight oil’ to help companies comply with law, given that invariably things get pushed almost to the last date.
While we are in the thick of this, we have still managed to find time to bring the regulatory updates covering the 20 day period in September so far. Should you wish to refer to any of our older issues of Lexspeak, do visit our Resource Centre at sharadasc.com
