A lack of schools in Manendragarh forced Manish to drop out after completing his class 10th but his father, Vidyadhar Garg, who works at the mines rescue centre at SECL, brought home a computer for Manish to study on his own.

In 2013, Manish went to Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics (MPQ) in Munich, Germany, to pursue his PhD.
Manish was the only Indian in the team that worked on the project. Beside that significant paper, Manish’s papers have been published by other science journals as well.
According to reports, this is the first time that Intel has shown a real scientist in one of their ads.
The ad is being seen as part of the company’s efforts to reach India’s interiors and inspire the students in those areas in a time when the Indian Government is pushing forward with its Digital India campaign.
