Hi Aarti,

As the verb 'haïr' (to hate) has what we call, un h aspiréh aspirate), we don't make the liaison to show that it is there.

Here are a few examples :

Ce sont des héros They are heroes.      ( the 's' is not pronounced)

J'adore les haricots = I love beans.          ( the ''s' is not pronounced)

Il y a une très belle vue en haut de la collineThere's a beautiful view from the top of the hill.    

Hope this helps!
