In the cloud, Mumbai is a long way from Asia

"AWS's Singapore region is, at most, 30 milliseconds away from a user probe in America, Australia or Sao Paulo, but on average 50ms from probes in Asia and more than 60ms from Europe."

Unless someone's changed the laws of physics, no, it's not. That graph shows latency variation, not actual latency. Singapore -> West Coast CONUS is something more like 150-180ms.
