Haresh Chandra was the husband of Gita Chandra and the father of Rani Chandra.

As a child, Haresh loved school. He first met his future wife, Gita, in a museum; she was taking refuge from the rain. When they married they honeymooned in Brussels, which Haresh enjoyed but Gita did not.

Haresh became the head teacher of Park Vale School. When Clyde Langer and Luke Smith first met him he was angry at their class' behaviour. Rani pretended not to know him; she did not want her friends to know her father was the head teacher. Later, when Clyde saw a clown, Haresh did not believe him and thought he was telling lies. The next day he was puzzled when students walked out of school with balloons. He put it down to a prank organised by Clyde. At first upset that his daughter had taken part in the "prank", he was pleased to discover she was with Luke and Clyde "studying at the library". He then offered to make them all tea.
