In addition to besting India in several HDI factors, Bangladesh bests India in urbanization too (per CIA Factbook).


India
Bangladesh

Urbanizationurban population: 34.9% of total population (2020)
rate of urbanization: 2.37% annual rate of change (2015-20 est.)
urban population: 38.2% of total population (2020)
rate of urbanization: 3.17% annual rate of change (2015-20 est.)

Indians are breeding like rabbits...

Population growth rate1.1% (2020 est.)0.98% (2020 est.)

Total fertility rate2.35 children born/woman (2020 est.)2.11 children born/woman (2020 est.)

Several health indicators will show what we already know...

Infant mortality ratetotal: 35.4 deaths/1,000 live births
male: 34.4 deaths/1,000 live births
female: 36.5 deaths/1,000 live births (2020 est.)
total: 28.3 deaths/1,000 live births
male: 30.6 deaths/1,000 live births
female: 26 deaths/1,000 live births (2020 est.)
Life expectancy at birthtotal population: 69.7 years
male: 68.4 years
female: 71.2 years (2020 est.)
total population: 74.2 years
male: 72 years
female: 76.5 years (2020 est.)

Children under the age of 5 years underweight33.4% (2016/18)21.9% (2017/18)
Health expenditures3.5% (2017)2.3% (2017)

Contraceptive prevalence rate53.5% (2015/16)62.3% (2014)

However besting India cannot be the end goal of any country, it is self-defeating. India's position in HDI is not the world's best. Everyone knows that.
Lol. Anything is possible with BBS. You would exceed America in 2 years too.
