We Indians think that tall statues, huge temples, big houses, etc. show that we are among the best in the world. I beg to disagree with this view. What we need to do is to live/act according to principles of people whose statues we raise, follow the good values of the religions in whose names we build temples and other structures, and construct houses that are affordable/comfortable. We go more by outward display than the inner messages. Sad.

Such wastage is not new, From ancient days we can notice such examples of wastage of money, manpower, space etc everywhere in the world..some of examples you already quoted in your question.
The approach behind these decisions is to prove own supriority and set a historic milestone of identity.
