Four years back on this day, I was preparing for my CA Final Exam. I was still an article assistant at M/s Vasu & Sivaram. My life was centered on the 8 papers I needed to clear for the completion of CA.

On 29-02-2008, my post in Ledger reads:
Today's fortune: Luck is coming your way. The way I see it, IDT is coming my way and no one in their right senses will call that 'Luck'. I have finally started with ASs and its progressing nicely. I intend to finish it by 15th so that I get enough time to revise MICS
So much has changed in the four years since I posted that: some good, some bad. It has been a terrific journey and today when I look back, I can gladly say that I am happy; I am happy for everything that happened in my life during these four years. Though I was not entirely lucky like the fortune teller said, I guess luck did come my way. I was lucky enough to clear CA in my first attempt, lucky to get a job right after my articleship, lucky to keep the friendships alive and lucky to escape from some life threatening accidents with nothing more than some minor bruises. So, in the end, the sorrows I had to suffer falls short of the happy moments by a long shot.

If the next four years are going to be even half as eventful as the previous Quartet, I will be a happy man. But that’s all in the future. Let’s see how it goes!

Annexure - Todays Fortune reads: "A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the oportunity in every difficulty"
