India recently slammed their lunar lander into our moon wasting a huge pile of cash, now they are wasting even more money on these computers. Meanwhile, over 90% of their raw sewage settles right back into their drinking water. Human fecal waste is found everywhere, even in their streets and on their sidewalks.

Maybe India should focus on bringing SOME quality of life to its citizens before trying their hand at advanced sciences.

Mesopotamians mastered the sewer system over 6,000 years ago...

I'm sorry but I just have to reply to this, not because it's offensive but because it's factually wrong. Indians invented urban planning and advanced sewer system. The Indus Valley civilization built the very first urban sewer network, with working showers and toilets circa 3000 BC while the Romans were still shitting in the Tiber and your ancestors were grunting and dancing around a fire wearing animal skins, before crawling back to their caves. Was there a sanitation problem in India in the past? Absolutely, and urban India is still far from spotless. But immense progress has been made. The majority of the Delhi municipal water supply as of this year is fit to drink right out of the tap. Do that in some places in 'Murica like Flint and you'll die of lead poisoning. Yes, the Chandrayaan mission cost $125 million. It helped the country gain critical R&D experience that can translate into better consumer products, service lines, and defence equipment. What exactly does $5 billion (50 times the moon mission budget) spent on a wall do for America? To be honest, I feel sorry for you .Yes, the West has had a good 200 years. But for 4800 of the past 5000 years, the world's largest economic powers have been India and China in alternation. This is our world and you've always been nothing more than peripheral entities living in unwanted climes, profiting from our ideas and products. Enjoy the next couple decades. They're the only point in all of human history where you've actually mattered :)

Maybe one day India will be able to become more civilized and have the ability to spend 800 billion dollars a year inventing better ways to kill people, invading countries, taking over governments killing civilians and children alike, creating terrorist organizations (al qaeda was created by US government - its not a secret anymore), all the while over a hundred thousands of americans are dying per year due to an incompetent and corrupt capitalist medical system, and then criticize other countries for not being the same way.

Maybe one day all the counties will be able to be just like this; only if they can learn to spend their money appropriately ... ahhh the American dream ... to be able to pretend that your shit doesn't stink - what a liberty!

India isn't rich in natural resources or big like Australia that they can develop by selling their natural resources. If they want to develop, they'll have to invest in technologies.
Just one step of their lunar mission failed, all the objectives were met, I don't think that's a failure. Taking into account that the whole mission had a cost of $140 million and comparing it with other countries like China's $8.4 billion in lunar craft in 2017, I think they did pretty good.
Quality of life is almost (not exactly) directly proportional to economic and educational development of the country as a whole and they seem to be doing exactly that in the last 20-25 years.
And as Arjun already said, if you want to talk about several thousand years ago, very few civilizations would hold candle to India and China.
