      • It was the Near/Middle/Far East question. To me the Far East means China and SouthEast Asia, not South Asia. The Middle East generally means Iran, Iraq, etc, but if you are going to use all three divisions – which is not usually done – then South Asia would be Middle and not Far! I am reminded of the comment by the former US Vice-President Dan Quayle that the strategic value of the Middle East was that it kept the Near East and Far East from bumping into each other!

        • In the broader categorisation, Indian been part of the South-East Asia was also placed under the Far East. The British Empire got their spices from India in from about the 15th century, and that was the name sailors and explorers call India. Also you’ll agree with me that it was the search for an alternative sea route to India, to bye cut the middlemen, that lead to the discovery of the Americas.
          But thank for you the added information Sir. You’ve given more insight to the discuss.
