It is true that Per Capita income is not a fool proof measure of country’s development and prosperity. There are many other parameters to measure our development and prosperity. People should get basic education, everyone should be able to get basic facilities like electricity, water etc. They should be safe and secure and no threats to lives should be there. Various parts of the country should be well connected and accessible to everyone. There should be no discrimination among people. Everyone should live with dignity. Then only we can say a country is developed and prosperous. Only per capita income doesn't give you a clear picture of a country's development.
