i don't think so.. i think people don't categorize them under the asian race though.. maybe this could be why you feel it's forgotten/overshadowed by east and southeast asian people?

i think in america people dont c them as asians but in europe people c south asians as asians and not east asians and southeast asians

i think south asians are forgotten because in the Western sense, they havent contributed much to technology and they have alot of problems of their own. IMO most news about south asia involves typhoons, deaths, mass starvations, polluted rivers, huge gaps in wealth, and tech achievements already accomplished by other countries.

I hope that made sense.

I have to say it very frankly, its probably just majority in proportion. Not to say that they have little population, in fact they have a lot, but we seldom hear of Sinhalese, Tamils or Indians participating much in global things such as the internet. At least not as much as the other Asians in proportion.

I'm from Europe and we call you middle asians And here at home I find that bollywood movies are suprisingly big It's just that in this community it doesn't seem like people's used to think of indians as asian, but you can't blame the americans most of them think that my country is the capitol of sweeden and that's only if they know that europe ain't a coutry but a continent,
