From The President

It is wiser to lead than to push, to request than to demand, to

suggest than to insist, to inspire than to compel, to motivate
than to manipulate.
William Arthur Ward

Dear students,
At the outset, accept my sincere greetings and best wishes for the festival season.
May the festivals kindle within you the indomitable desire to excel in the pursuit you are
engaged in. As is rightly perceived, life is a continuous festivity. This festivity intensifies
into immeasurable happiness as you pursue your learning incessantly, insatiably and
intensely. As students of a professional course, your enthusiasm should multiply as you
learn more and more, disseminate your knowledge and excel in your skills on various fronts. Look forward to a
successful career path and prepare well for the forthcoming December examinations. To be fully equipped to face
the examinations with confidence and composure, i advise you to start and pursue your preparation in the right
earnest. Being the students of this professional Institute, you should have a sense of pride aiming at achieving
excellence in whatever work you undertake. It must be your endeavour to throw your heart and soul into it and try to
achieve high standards of excellence.
The changing global environment is full of challenges and if you surf the changing scenario using the knowledge
acquired by you as the tool, you can turn these challenges into opportunities. We are witnessing an era of knowledge
and intellect, where innovation is the key for the production and processing of knowledge. You are the master
architect of your professional career and to remain competitive in the global market place, you have to be on the
learning curve and continuously move up keeping track of legislative reforms and technical developments,
understanding their impact on your duties and responsibilities, and successfully emerging as professionals par
excellence. Always remember winner never quits and a quitter never wins.
A detailed write-up containing observations on the examinees performance in June 2007 examinations based on
examiners comments is published in this issue. These observations would help you to know about your deficiencies
and drawbacks in the previous examinations so that you take care not to repeat the same mistakes. You would also
understand the level of knowledge expected from the students while writing answers to the questions.
Company Secretaries should increase value of corporates while keeping the value system intact. This was the
core communication of the 35th National Convention on the theme Excellence Through Business Value Addition
which was organised on September 20-22, 2007 at B M Birla Auditorium, Jaipur. The Convention was inaugurated
by Shri Prem Chand Gupta, Honble Union Minister of Corporate Affairs. Indicating that the new company law would
provide greater opportunities for professionals like Company Secretaries, he expressed the view that a simple and
business like version of company law would provide the required flexibility, much awaited dynamism and new life of
self regulation to the corporate world. The Honble Minister appreciated the role of ICSI in providing expert knowledge
and support to the Ministry of Corporate Affairs in matters of corporate governance; more specifically in evolving
areas like new company law, limited liability partnership law and e-governance. The quality of knowledge and
expertise provided by the ICSI had created bondage of trust and faith between the two, said the Minister.
Shri Anurag Goel, Secretary, Ministry of Corporate Affairs stated about the legislative reforms process initiated by
the Ministry in the area of company law and limited liability partnership law and observed that with the reforms in the
regulatory framework and the service delivery systems, it was now the responsibility of the corporate professionals
to spearhead this reform movement. He suggested that the professionals like Company Secretaries could weave
the threads of enterprise, knowledge, experience, idea and tasks into a fabric and take the country to excellence in
all spheres.
Dr. Prabha Thakhur, Member of Parliament in her special address emphasized that a Company Secretary should
balance the interests of various stakeholders viz. shareholders, creditors, customers, government and the public at

large as they strove to carry forward the corporates, adding that the professionals played a much greater role in
building a strong nation.
In his Key Note Address, Dr. B K Modi, Chairman, MCorp Global, emphasised brand building urging Company
Secretaries to devise strategies to brand the profession to play a global role. Dr. Modi envisioned that Company
Secretaries would play the role as strategic managers in leading Indian corporates go global.
The following publications were released at the Convention namely- Secretarial Standard on Minutes (SS-5);
Secretarial Standard on Transmission of Shares and Debentures (SS-6); Guidance Note on Corporate Governance
Certificate (Revised Edition); Prohibition of Insider Trading - Law and Procedure. A comprehensive compact disc
containing all the Secretarial Standards released so far and a CD Rom containing all issues of Chartered Secretary
upto July 2007 were also released at the National Convention. The students may purchase the books for their use.
Friends, I am pleased to inform you that the Institute entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with
BSE Training Institute (BTI) on September 12, 2007 to facilitate holding of training programmes for students as well
as for members on themes of topical and professional interest, and to regularly exchange resources which may be
of mutual interest. The MOU would also enable the extended help and co-operation in developing curriculum of
academic and continuing education programmes and to exchange faculties. I am sure, this MOU would provide the
right platform to Company Secretaries to further build their capacities and sharpen skills to meet the challenges of
the transforming capital markets.
The Institute will be celebrating its Foundation Day this year on Tuesday, October 30, 2007 at New Delhi. The
celebrations will be marked by an address by Honble Minister of Railways Shri Lalu Prasad Yadav on Excellence
Through Turnaround Strategy. Turnaround is essential in the life of every organization and in the life of each profession.
A renewal is possible only through a turnaround. The trigger for a turnaround may not be a likeable experience or
situation. But it can be looked upon as a blessing in disguise, a challenge that will modernize the outlook and
change the mindset; and who would be a better speaker on the topic than Shri Lalu Prasad who brought about a
miracle in the finances and profitability of Indian Railways and who now adorns the corridors of management
pedagogies of international repute as a coveted faculty. Honble Union Minister of Corporate Affairs Shri Prem
Chand Gupta has agreed to be the Guest of Honor for the function. I urge upon you to attend this programme and
learn a lot as you also have to lay the foundation of your future in the profession.
I conclude by stating that utilize your time effectively. Most of the times we take it for granted that there is always
plenty of time. Due to this perhaps we indulge in various activities, which are a wholesale waste of time. As you
observe, the clock always keeps on ticking. So be like the clock. Always keep on ticking by involving yourself in
various things and learning new things. These small knowledge and experience modules will perhaps one day take
you to your bigger goal some day. The great French Marshall Lyautey once asked his gardener to plant a tree. The
gardener objected that the tree was slow growing and would not reach maturity for 100 years. The Marshall replied,
In that case, there is no time to lose; plant it this afternoon!

With best wishes,

Yours sincerely,
