First of all, whoever sees this picture will be surprised or laugh without knowing the real purpose and will be satisfied with prejudices about Bollywood worshippers. In fact, Dr.Vikram Sarabhai, a pioneer of the Indian space program, estimated that India's first APPLE satellite, would be carried by an bullock cart. ISRO designed India's first communication satellite in 1981, this iconic photo has gone around the world. But the reason for using a wooden bullocks cart was simple-to avoid interference from magnet-sensitive instruments with metal trucks! Whether it was transporting the parts of the first sounding rocket on a bicycle or transporting India's first satellite on an bullock cart, it is worth noting and honoring this man who in all modesty, to launch India into the space age, did not hesitate to push the technology with bullocks.
