What I mean by removing the senses is removing words like, heard, hear, saw, see, seen, felt, touched, smelled, tasted, etc. I am wondering about the best ways to remove those words.

On the other side of that door officers sat at desks, processing paper work. Normally that would be telling information a character could not know, but in this case Bharita does know.
