I never use that term like most others do.

From the map i made i say...
Near East (Western Asia) = Red, Yellow, Green
Middle East (Central Asia) = Light Blue, Purple, Brown
Far East (Eastern Asia) = Orange, Dark Blue, Pink

East is just another word for Asia for Westerners.

I don't understand what this means, exactly. South Asia is essentially the Indian Subcontinent. India is therefore classified as a part of either. Myanmar has a tiny sliver that sits on the Indian plate, but by far most of it is on the Eurasian plate.
