In the vibrant streets of Lenasia, a mischievous boy, always curious and chatty, grew up in a family where discipline was meted out with a gentle hand. This boy was Hemanth Haricharan, whose youthful adventures in the area, from playing soccer to celebrating Guy Fawkes Day, were overshadowed only by his knack for creating awkward situations with his unexpected remarks. His father, a dedicated officer of the South African Police Service, and his mother, the family’s home executive, along with his beloved granny “AAJI,” played pivotal roles in shaping the young Hemanth.
It was this backdrop of familial love and his father’s unfulfilled dream of becoming a lawyer that propelled Hemanth towards the legal field. Influenced by his parents’ emphasis on truth and righteousness, he pursued an LLB degree at the University of KwaZulu Natal, seeing it as a tribute to his father and a fulfilment of his dream. Hemanth’s journey wasn’t just about following in his father’s footsteps; it was also about creating his own path in the world of law.
Now, as a Dispute Resolution Official at the Consolidated Employers’ Organisation (CEO), Hemanth cherishes the camaraderie and team spirit that drives the organisation. CEO stands out in its field, leading the way in representing employers with unmatched dedication, something that resonates deeply with Hemanth’s values.
His life, peppered with personal triumphs like establishing his own firm and excelling in criminal litigation, is a testament to his dedication and hard work. But it’s not all work and no play for Hemanth. In his leisure time, he enjoys the simple pleasures of life – watching Netflix, reading, and spending time at the beach or park. His love for Chinese food, especially his mum’s cooking, and his appreciation for old classics in music show a man who values the finer things in life.
Hemanth’s vision for the future is one of financial freedom and continued personal growth, a journey towards self-realisation and uncovering life’s mysteries. His candid admission of wanting to improve by listening more and speaking less, controlling his anger better, and dedicating more time to prayer and reading shows a man in constant pursuit of self-improvement.
Hemanth Haricharan, with his blend of professional dedication and personal charm, is more than just a lawyer; he’s a beacon of balance, blending the rigour of law with the lightness of life. His story is not just about upholding the law; it’s about living it in every aspect of his life.
