Does your medical diploma just say 'Manish' without a last name? The name you use in applying for exams should match the name on the diploma. If it doesn't match then you have to submit extra documentation that the two are actually the same (i.e. birth certificate, passport, marriage license).

Then you have to send additional documents to verify that the two names are the same one person.
