Hard work is only one of the many factors behind Europe's wealth. During the colonial period, total control over the trade routes and the external territories ensured unlimited supply of raw material at affordable rate. Not to forget the slave/bounded labor. The finished goods were exported back to the colonies.

Those European countries which did not control the external territories grew due to geographical proximity to the colonial powers. Trickle-down effect as they say.

Nobody can deny the fact that India's infrastructure now is significantly better that what it used to be a decade ago and there is continuous improvement. Right now whole India looks like a construction site, new infrastructure is coming up everywhere.

India and China are going through the same phase and both the countries are trying to secure their trade routes and find long-term suppliers of the vital resources (that is the main reason behind the India-Russia bonhomie and the Chabahar-type deals).
