Credit bureaus

They hold an important distinction in our society. Our creditworthiness depends on them after all. In all seriousness, if it hadn’t been for credit bureaus the banking institutions would’ve been doomed long back! And our lives would’ve been very difficult — think about multiple verification calls, background checks and a ton of paperwork. I don’t […]

Random thoughts are for real

Bumped into a former colleague yesterday. It was a chance encounter but a good one nonetheless. It’s great to catch up with someone from work after ages! He was blown away with the things I have been doing lately (it’s the usual stuff that you know of… but folks these days get easily impressed with […]
