South Asia: Tethered to the Middle East; Southeast Asia: Tethered to China

Today, the cultural influence of India in Southeast Asia continues in the form of religion, but so does the mutual separation between their cultural spheres. There may be more trade and infrastructure between the two regions in the future, but it won't change the fact that overall South Asia generally goes together better with the Middle East and Southeast Asia better with China, and that these linkages are stronger than the cultural and strategic linkages South and Southeast Asia may have with each other.
