Pandit was twenty-five in 1991 when she set up her agency: Rajani Pandit Detective Services. Today Pandit has a team of about twenty people. Even though her agency is based in Mumbai, her clients are spread all over sub-continent of India. Pandit gets many offers to open more branches of her agency in other Indian cities but she is not even tempted. She doesn’t want to run after money; she just wants to help people.
Pandit encourages other women to be brave and choose a career they desire. She says, “If you want to do something, you should do it. There should be no shame in doing any work you are passionate about. Self-confidence, courage, and stubbornness – these are the things that take you a long way. With these, women can do anything that they set their minds to’ (Singh).
