A 21-years-old little boy from Surat of Gujarat – Aditya Jhawar has become India’s youngest person to become – Chartered Accountancy (CA), Company Secretary (CS) and Cost and Management Accountancy (CMA) all at once!
You know how a lot of people study like crazies and get ages old to become a Chartered Accountant? It is one of the very tough competitive exams of India and clearing it is no piece of cake. But it certainly seems to be one for Surat’s Aditya Jhawar because he has not just become a Chartered Accountant at mere age of 21, but has also qualified the Company Secretary (CS) and Cost and Management Accountancy (CMA)! With this amazing feat, Aditya has become India’s youngest person to complete all the three professional qualification. This record was earlier booked by Sarthak Ahuja and Pallavi Sachdeva, both of Delhi who were the youngest to complete CA, CS and CMA at the age of 23. But the brilliant Surati boy has beat the previous record with a major, major difference of 2 whole years!
Such achievement doesn’t come overnight, it takes a lot more than a lot and that is what Jhawar did. At the age of 15 when others are just school kids, Jhawar started his higher studies and began preparing for CA and he passed all its examination. He also cleared the exams of CS along with CA! After that he Pursued CMA and qualified that too. When he was done with all this, Jhawar was merely 21 years old and he proved that anything is possible. He has also pursued Bachelors of Commerce from Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) and is waiting its final result.
Jhawar ‘s father Mahesh Jhawar, a textile trader, had also cleared the second stage of CA but couldn’t continue with CA final due to involvement in family business. So the success and achievement of his 21-year-old young son is almost like living his own dream of becoming a CA – only better. This is a real life example of how age is just a number and nothing is impossible.
