ICAI CA results 2019: Achieving the position of ICAI CA topper is no simple feat, but for Kolkata boy Abhay Bajoria, it holds emotional significance as well. “I am delighted to fulfill the dream of my father. He always wished to see me as a chartered accountant,” shared the topper.
His father, Durga Prasad Bajoria, who passed away in 2016 at the time of his ICAI intermediate examination, had similar aspirations but was unable to pursue it. “He would often speak of his pain in failing to become a chartered accountant due to the family’s financial constraints,” recalled Abhay.
