Githa Hariharan (born 1954 Coimbatore, India) is an Indian author and editor based in New Delhi. Her first novel, The Thousand Faces of Night, won the Commonwealth Writers' Prize in 1993.


Githa Hariharan was born in Coimbatore and grew up in Bombay and Manila. She obtained a BA (in English) from Bombay University and a BA (in Communications) from Fairfield University. She first worked in the Public Broadcasting System in New York and then with a publishing firm as an editor in India. In her personal life, she, along with her husband, won the right to have the children named after her (instead of carrying the father's name); in this famous case argued by Indira Jaising, the Supreme Court agreed that the mother was also a "natural guardian" of the child.
