Manoj Bhargava early life

Bhargava is Lucknow-born who later moved to Philadelphia with his parents during the 1960s where he completed his schooling and a year of undergraduate education at Princeton, before dropping out to return to India.

After returning to India, he became a monk in a commune and for the next 12 years, he traveled between monasteries in the Indian mountains at 'Hanslok Ashram' in Delhi. Bhargava spent those years in mastering the stilling of the mind through the process of meditation. 

He later returned to the US to help his parents with their company of plastics. Later in his life, Bhargava shifted his focus from plastics to chemicals, finding himself entering a new field altogether and thereby, has been making his country (India) proud since then.
