When situation is tough, be tougher. This is the motto of CA Chirag chouhan. He faced all the problems with this attitude. After his father’s death with intention to support his family he decided to stand on his feet. As career option he opted to become a CA and enrolled himself for the course in ‘Institute Of Charted Accountancy Of India’ [ICAI]. Simultaneously he took admission for Graduation also. He worked hard for both. Got good marks in Graduation and also cleared PE II stage of CA course. Full of hope and enthusiasm he started doing his Articleship from a reputed firm of Mumbai M/S A J Shah & Co. Everything was going smoothly. He was enjoying working there.
11 July 2006 was started as normal day. He went for his work. As he was free a little early he boarded a local train to return home as usual. But a series of blast in local trains shook the whole Mumbai. Around 180 people were killed and many more left injured. Chirag found himself on hospital bed. His Spinal Cord was badly damaged. All of a sudden the smiling face of life turned harsh. He was devastated. All his dreams were shattered. He started complaining to God ‘Why Me.’ In this dark situation Motor control scientist Dr Rajul Vasa came for his help. Soon Chirag realized that lamenting on his condition could not help him. So he decided to get a better control on his body and worked hard according to plan made by Dr. Vasa.
His determination and dedication of Dr. Vasa brought positive result. Now he was independent. He decided to resume studying for CA Final exams. It was not easy but strong will power of Chirag was ready to face everything. On 12th July 2008 when results of May examinations were announced only 25% candidates got success. Chirag was one of them.
Presently he owns a firm ‘Chirag & Associate’ and also a cofounder of an online startup company ‘Expertmile. com’.
His determination proved that hardships can’t stop you to move on.
