Am I correct in my understanding that the Indian people, as a race, are considered "Asian".

Presuming I have that correct can some explain to me why, the indian heritage and culture to my foreign eyes seems very distinct from other Asian cultures.

Is it a term Indians themselves use to describe themselves? If so do Indians feel a closer tie to other Asian countries than they do say, Pakistan? I assume of course Pakistanis dont describe themselves as Asian...


@freemo Indians and Pakistanis are essentially the same. We weren't aware that we are Indians and Pakistani till the Brits broke us up and left. :bloblewd:

And yes, we are all usually considered South Asians. Further east is South East Asians.

@Venkatmangudi @freemo
The brits didn't divide willing, the Islamist leaders from the present Pakistan insisted they must go.
