Does south asian mean indian & pakistan or it can also be mongoliod?

Update: My friend got 1% south asian in her dna test and now she thinks she got indian blood lol.
i really doubt it cause i think most asian are pure.
even there are pure mongoliod asian in india.
Update 2: my family is from south east asia. i have one great grandpa from india from my dad side and both of my mom parents are from china. even though my great grand dad is from india, he is 100% mongoliod with no mixed or indian blood. i know most asian(our kind) rarely mixed but we might mixed with each other. in fact... show more my family is from south east asia. i have one great grandpa from india from my dad side and both of my mom parents are from china. even though my great grand dad is from india, he is 100% mongoliod with no mixed or indian blood. i know most asian(our kind) rarely mixed but we might mixed with each other.
in fact there are also mongoliod race in india, south asia.
