Hello Arjun, 

Hats off to your aspiration. Being from humanities you wish to get into finance stream and that too without basics in accounting wish to opt for CFA.

I would suggest first get a hang of accounts by pursuing a course or a job which is difficult as you have no subject knowledge. CFA requires atleast 3 years ofexperience. 

Rather I would suggest appear for CET and other entrance exams conducted by other institutes like XAT, NMAT, SAT etc. Not IIM'S but these institutes are well known for their MBA and or PGDBM programs. Atleast getting an MBA degree in finance will help you enter the financial domain and after few years of work experience if still interested can opt for CFA.

Wish you good luck...
