You heard it right!!!
But what are you thinking…. ????
This is not cinema, Definitely not fiction..
You heard it in the real world!
They do exist!!
There are a lot of misconceptions about detectives due to the false propaganda they have received through cinemas and fictions….
They wear long black jackets…
Goggles for style…
High end shoes..
They’ve got hi-tech fancy equipment..
a state of the art BMW to travel in and a tough name, preferably something like BOND.. JAMES BOND. And most importantly, they carry a pistol
( Yup.. and sometimes shoot at sight, right in front of the police, Interpol, or even the FBI).
Have you ever seen somebody like this roaming around on our streets?
I hope and believe that your answer is No. Come on..!!!
and if you did find one, make sure you show them the way to a doctor.
Coming back to the topic…
How then do you suppose a private detective actually looks like? Well,
he looks like a normal person,
They are no different, but with an unconventional PERSPECTIVE to everything they see.
They don’t carry a pistol every time,
they don’t shoot, they discover!
A casual shirt is always more comfortable than a heavy jacket for investigative adventures.
So there are chances that the guy who passed by you today is a private investigator and you never knew.
Every name suits him because nobody takes birth as a detective!!
What really matters is his sharp brain.
Detectives are also doing their job to earn money and lead a good life.
Don’t think of them as any different.
Now all we can do is unstitch the well threaded image of private detectives from our mind.
Granted, what they are and how they are working are pretty different.
Apart from the glamour, our real world detectives are also with innumerable combinations of specialities.
They are not always looking into mysterious murder cases.
They work with normal people, so what they investigate depends on the issues faced by their clients.
(Every family isn’t faced with murder cases or high end robberies).
All kind of investigations like background checks, civil investigations,
all types of surveillance, matrimonial investigations, insurance investigations, fraud cases, corporate investigations, accident reconstruction, domestic investigations, infidelity and cheating spouse, drug and sexual abuse investigations and high end crimes are happily accepted and dealt with by private detective agencies.
Private detectives are always a helping hand to those who suffer with the above issues.
Always ready to serve people without affecting their privacy and giving respect to their confidentiality.
Detectives find facts and analyse them to make sure that the information provided to the client is 100 % true.
Most of the detectives prefer working as a team so that different perspectives of different team members helps ultimately in gaining accurate results.
A good detective will always have a professional way of treating his clients and every information and transactions will be transparent between them.
So its high time we remove all the misconceptions and get to know private detectives.
They are not James bond. Nor are they Mr & Mrs Smith, Or Byomkesh Bakshi.
They aren’t like any of your super heroes. They are HUMANS..
Talented men and women who are always ready to serve anyone in their times of need. A third Eye as they are fondly called.
