A Jubilee is a carnival in the life of any Institution as it keeps making the entire commune to relish the successful assignment of the lighted torch from one spearhead to another and the Golden Jubilee is a grand celebration for that Institute to look back on significant milestone of their hard work, dedication and good work, and also to look forward on building celebrative milestones in the upcoming journey of their vision. Indeed the celebration of Golden Jubilee is one great event in the history of that Institute, and the celebration of the Golden Jubilee of the Institute of Company Secretaries of India is of much public importance and joy as it calls for successful implantation of good governance, transparency, accountability and directed reforms towards the larger good of larger masses. In the words of Jeremy Bentham, the effectiveness of any law justifies to produce and promote the ‘greatest amount of happiness for the greatest number of people’. In a country like India, where the democratic government seeks to secure the greatest welfare to masses, the purpose of the law in serving greatest amount of happiness to the greatest number of people is much dependent of the focused and goal-oriented implementation of laws and regulations in the varied sectors of the country.
The Institute of Company Secretaries of India, as a premier professional body with a vision “To be a global leader in promoting Good Corporate Governance”, is persistently playing significant role in advancing the adherence to the laws and regulations in the related field, along with associating their proficiencies towards the directed operation of laws, rules and regulations in ensuring greatest happiness to the greatest people.
In the last five decades of its existence, the pioneering support and association for building the culture of good governance throughout the corporate landscape has certainly contributed for the inclusive growth of the nation as a step ahead.
The hard-work, dedication and commitment of the Institute towards the effective accomplishment of its vision and mission with precision, has undoubtedly witnessed the climbing of various landmark stairs year by year and decade by decade. On this joyous occasion of opening the celebration of Golden Jubilee of the Institute, what could have been more relishing treasure than experiencing the step by step achievements in the momentous journey of its golden years of its existence. The publication of the title “Golden Years of ICSI Journey” would surely mark one of the treasures for the Institute and entire professional commune in venerating this memorable day in the history of the Institute.
I am sure that this publication emphasizing the significant journey of the Institute in last five decades would not only communicate the tale of professional excellence of the Institute towards the establishment, advancement and sustainment of global principle of good governance, transparency and accountability, but would also inspire the upcoming generation in dedicatedly following their path towards nation building at length and breadth.
I am grateful to CS R Krishnan, Past President, ICSI who readily acceded to my request to author this “Golden Years of ICSI Journey” Mr. Krishnan’s passion, dedication and sterling contribution to the profession is unparalleled. As one intimately involved in the profession long before ICSI was born, as the senior most GDCS, he has eloquently scripted the long and arduous journey including trials and tribulations of the Institute during the last 5 decades. Ms. Sonia Baijal, Director, ICSI, Akansha Gupta, Executive (Academics), Sonu Lakhani, Executive (Academics) and Raju in the Institute located, assembled and provided valuable data and ingredients at very short notice and deserve our appreciation.
