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.

Manish’s pursuit for education helped him clear the IIT-JEE examinations. He went on doing his PG from the Institute of Science, Education and Research, Kolkata.

In 2013, Manish went to Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics (MPQ) in Munich, Germany, to pursue his PhD.

Two years later, Manish became world famous when the prestigious science magazine ‘Nature’ published a research paper on the use of laser-light to drive electronic gadgets by controlling speed of electrons inside a solid.

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.
