Subject:        Why Are Indians Called Asians In The UK?

Can anyone tell me why Indians called Asians in the UK?  In the U.S.,
Asian is reserved for Japanese, Chinese, and Koreans.   Indians are
called Indians.  In the UK, this seems to be reversed.  Only Indians are
called Asians.

Is that right?
