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 the thing is that in India, we don't have a particular culture that i or any Indian can pinpoint. We have a unique diversity where we have more than 100 languages (23 recognized by the constitution), 5 major religions and many other minorities.
Every 200 km, you can see the uniqueness nature of India.
In Korea or China, they have a particular culture with which they represent their country. India represents itself with it's diversity.


@_lunawinters @freemo Thats why India is being easily polarized and distracted.
