CA walla

The Institute of Chartered Accountants (ICAI) has just decided that CA’s all over the country will now have a dress code. Link here. And the reason :

“A professional should be identified by his knowledge, garb and panache. I believe the new dress code — blue blazer and tie — will give chartered accountants a new identity,” said president of ICAI Sunil Talati.

However, what they seem to be missing, when quite obviously having referred to doctors and lawyers, is that the white coats and the black gowns are worn in a designated workplace – hospitals and courtrooms. Can you imagine your doctor father or your lawyer uncle hurriedly slipping into their ‘uniforms’ at home as soon as someone rings the doorbell? As per ICAI, 75000 of the 1.4lakh CA’s in the country work in corporate offices and the rest are obviously in private practice. Either way, it’s not going to look bright for you to wear a blue blazer and tie every day of your life, be it to office or at home (which is even more ridiculous), especially after you’ve spent months slogging away.

It is stories like these that make me truly patriotic. What other country would devote so much time and resources in making decisions for the sole purpose of amusing me?
