In India there was height restriction law in 1970s and 1980s so even Mumbai could not build taller than 35 floors but the height restriction was lifted in 2000 then the cities like MUmbai Kolkata Navi Mumbai Thane Pune Chennai Kochi Ahmedabad Hyderabad Banglore Noida Delhi Surat Gurgaon are now building mush taller buildings over 40 floors 150 meter plus but in future the Cities India will have much taller skyscrapers .

If u think india and usa is the same, usa is 60 years ahead india, japan 40 and china 30 years ahead india. Number of billionaires also lose to china, a country that u think has no freedom. Why a communist country can do much better than world largest democracy? Think!
Which country would you live in China or India the world's largest democracy free elections free votes free courts free press world's largest film industry bollywood and hollywood 100 airports internal flights with many private airlines than China .Yes India has 350 million people living in Poverty but Government is reducing poverty by 2030 India will have the Third largest economy in the world and all the poverty will be reduced.
China is a huge country with largest population making cheap knock offs for the western consumers led to to huge growth in China but believe me China has massive poverty problems in it's mainlands so don't be naive to think China is a first world country China is behind the USA and Europe by 30 years but India is more open country and it shows the world the truth about what India is in with many people are better off and many people are still on poverty.

Mumbai is the only city in the world that resembles New York and there some 15 supertalls under construction in Mumbai, by 2020 the city of Mumbai will look a bit more like New York City.

According to Emporis Mumbai is 20th city with the most skyscrapers in the world .
According to Wiki Mumbai is 15th in the world with skyscrapers above 150 meters .
Seattle could be better than Lima or Edmonton but it would be better than most cities in Asia except Hong Kong Shanghai Tokyo Seoul Bangkok Jakarta Dubai Shanghai and better than every cities in Europe and Africa .
As for Bollywood and Hollywood, India and USA are similar countries with worlds largest democracies free courts free press largest film industries and white and dark skinned people fast foods,freeways luxury homes and apartments billionaires and millionaires film stars,hundreds of cities with airports .Washington is similar to New Delhi and New York is similar to Mumbai and Indian Aryan race are descendants of European race that's in India some people are with white skin blue and green eyes in Northern India.

Six lane highways and shopping malls are not new, they are old, they are a 20th century product of the past that are allready being replaced.
Developed cities rarely build giant new highways or shopping malls anymore as they are considered old fashioned and not fit for the modern world of dense public transport networks, advanced infrastructure, high speed rail and subways. Online shopping has made shopping malls increasingly obsolete.
You have this 'new money' mentality that shiny, new, big = being modern, when infact it's an old 20th century construct considered a thing of the past in most of the developed world. I think your ideal city would be dallas circa 1985.
Indian cities will be different than what your idea of modern is, they will actually be modern, with transport infrastructure and Internet based commerce/economy, more like Hong kong/singapore/europe/japan/N America etc

Internet shopping there are more Internet use in India than Japan and small islands like Singapore Hong kong or Europe if you bothered to check your facts .India has more mobile in use than any other countries in the world except China so check your facts . You can do your shopping on internet in India or book your holidays/hotels and flights so what's big deal about it ?
Internet is destroying many towns and small cities with many shops closed down and many Malls empty of shops in Europe and other parts of the world.
Many western firms are using India for IT and call centres as India has the largest speaking People in the world with estimated 450 million Indians can speak and write English.
India has modern Malls modern airports tall skyscrapers and more internet user in the world after China .

You've completely misunderstood my point. Of course India is increasingly using online shopping, mobile Internet etc, just like the rest of the world has been doing for years, and it is because of this that old style shopping malls are becoming obsolete in India too, as they are in most of the world.
Having airports is something much of the world has had for a century or more, its not a sign of modernity. High speed rail/maglev would be more impressive/progressive than 1950s style six lane highways.
My point is your trying to show how modern India is, but you're using bad examples, you're saying it has things that you think are a sign of modernity, but to the rest of the world those things are ancient, and it's almost cringe-worthy watching you boast about them.
India has many other things going on that really are impressive, you should speak of them if you can't contain your nationalistic urge to shout how fantastic India is.
Talking of shopping malls and highways a hundred years after the rest of the world built them is not the way to showcase your countries greatness

Thats because of large population resulting in large number


But what about internet penetration? Hows the fibre optic network coverage? 4G network? I can only say only large cities in india are well covered. In japan, korea, singapore, usa etc all these countries have internet speed over 100mbps.


Other than connectivity, mass transportation is also important. Highway lanes are no longer in trend. Having public transport such as modern MRT and buses, good infrastructure which provides comfort and ease of access for its population.

4G network is slow process might take longer in places like India China and South America and Africa. Japan Korea and Singapore are advance country and small island like Singapore is covered by internet speed over 110 mbps but China and India are still investing in superfast broadband but like you say it's only avaliable in 21 Indian cities at present .
As for public transport India is investing billion of Dollars on metro, bus lanes in cities, high speed trains and rapid transit system and six lane highways
The topic is about skylines and supertall skyscrapers and the world is building more tall and supertall skyscrapers even Indian cities like Mumbai Delhi Kolkata Banglore Hyderabad Gurgaon Noida Pune are now building and planning more tall skyscrappers oveer 150 meters in Mumbai it's over 300 meters .

Maybe the West and North America built tall skyscrapers shopping malls and six lane highways 100 years ago but in Asia China India and Africa these development are taking place now as they the emerging economies or Third World as people call it .
The cities in China India Africa Asia are changing fast which is good for them to catch up with the West and North America .
If you are talking about Internet shopping which is a good thing but like i lived in the West and UK and Europe and you can come see for yourself in the last ten years many shops have closed down in city centre and small town centres and many shop units empty in Shopping Malls because of online shopping which is harming the shops in many towns and cities in the West .
The topic about skylines and supertall skyscrapers which the world is changing i did not mention India just an example but around the world places like Asia Africa South America and Middle East that the ciities are changing fast with tall skyscrapers shopping malls six lane highways and metros etc etc
