was the establishment of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) under the Indian Space Program. Vikram Sarabhai had said, “Some people raise questions about the relevance of space activities in progressive countries. We have no doubt about our goal. We do not dream of competing with developed countries in the field of lunar and satellite exploration. But to play a meaningful role at the national or international level, I do not want to be left behind in the use of highly advanced technology in solving the difficulties of human society. “
