Latin, English and Sanskrit Besides Sub Prime History Written By the Victors

Latin, English and Sanskrit Besides Sub Prime History Written By the Victors

I think it is wrong to hide the influence of Sanskrit on English, Latin and other Indo-European languages. Kalidaasa’s Shakunthalam and Goethe’s Sakontala may not be that different after all. The Vedas, Puranas, Itihaasas, Upanishad’s and the Five Books of Moses and the Old Testament and the New Testament may not be that dissimilar either.

From these premises I believe learning Sanskrit is eminently more sensible than learning Latin. Many people blindly believe Greek and Latin alone is responsible for the English etymology. This belief could be due to the fact that in English dictionaries the etymology of most English words is shown as Greek & Latin or French & German. The Sanskrit connection is often ignored or sidelined either due to ignorance, bigotry, intellectual racism or all of them. Some others can’t even make the connection between English and the rest of the Indo-European family of languages although it is the largest language family in the world spoken by the largest number of people in Asia and Europe even according to several Encyclopedias.

In a world of ideological divide and academic expediency what is forgotten are the true connections between the Indo-European languages. It is believed that the Silk Road has been in existence for about 4500 years or so connecting Europe with Asia which in a sense laid the foundations of the modern world as we know it.

For some the Silk Road unfortunately was a mere ” spice road/curry trade route” involving some spices like cloves, cinnamon, pepper, turmeric or a luxury trade involving silk, sahutosh, pashmina, cashmere, diamonds, pearls, saphron, precious stones etc! Was it also a “Skills Road as it was in Asia that most of humanity’s first innovations happened? The Silk Road/Silk Route or whatever that infrastructure is called allowed Europe to learn about the religions like Hinduism (the oldest of major religions), Judaism, Budhism, Jainism, Christianity, and Islam which all originated in Asia. Jesus Christ was a rebel Jewish Rabbi born in Asia (Israel/Palestine) and whether he has had blonde hair or not is not the issue the issue is about the assimilation of languages, cultures, philosophies, science between the the two continents.

Please bear in mind how the European colonialists rewrote the history of humanity since the early 1700s to this day using their techonological and economic advantage in the form of printing presses, industrial revolution, typewritters to the computer. Until 1700 AD both India and China together had a global GDP share of 70% which in India’s case shrunk to 0.8% by 1991 and China’s to less than India’s in 1947. Please keep in mind the denigration inflicted on both India and China by the European print and television media using both the so called experts from Europe in tandem with the hired Indian and Chinese experts. The typical Indian and Chinese pictures of 1990s that of the cyclists on Chinese roads or that of the Hindu monks in bathing ghats in Varanasi or that of snake charmers to name a few were all part of a pattern like a pattern of dictatorships and dynastic rulers in the developing world mostly educated in British universities like in the case of the Indira-Nehru dynasty of India, the Bhuttos of Pakistan, the Husseins and Azads of Jordan and Syria. Ever wondered why all the Indian born Booker Prize Winners are all staunch British supporters, Hindu haters and Islamic sympathisers! Ever wondered why Khalid Muhammed Sheik the architect of September 11 terrorist attacks on New York was educated in London School of Economics? The London School of Economics is hotbed of Islamic terrorism according to several reports by UK Sunday Times!

In its hey day the British establishment through their charitable, human rights and other organisations were the chief brand ambassadors, benefactors and alibi makers for the Kasmiri and Sikh militants. One should also take note why only the Taj Mahal is shown and celebrated as the only architectural marvel whilst there are thousands of Indian temples and palaces some of which beat Taj Mahal in its aesthetic and architectural fete. The key to creating Divide and Rule whether in a family or a nation is by favouring one against the other without which no one can create Divide and Rule. Please also appreciate why the Western Europeans who derisively call the Eastern Europeans have no qualms in claiming that the foundation of Western Civilisation was laid by Greece which is easterly of even Eastern Europe. Another case in point of this historical, cultural, linguistic, civilisational denigration through distortion and misrepresentation is the name given to South Asians in Britain. South Asians from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh are called “Asians” whilst Japan, South Korea, Israel, China, Saudi Arabia and in short all the major forex buyers are in Asia. The finest example of the European colonial mindset is the British Monarch annointing British and pliable foreign nationals as Lords, Knights, Commanders, Officers and Dames of the Empire. The British leftists like leftists everywhere are anti heritage like the Islamic fundamentalists as evidenced by Mao’s Cultural Revolution, Stalin’s Russification, the blowing up of the Bamiyan Buddha in Afghanistan by the Taliban. The British charity industry works in tandem with the foreign office controlled BBC and the British education industry. Sorry for going on about this context whilst the theme of this blog is about looking at how English borrowed so heavily from Sanksrit. If “Nein” in German is the English equivalent of “No” and Jagnath is good for juggernaut many of the Sanskrit words in this blog do qualify for this etymological study.

I therefore believe that there is more connection between Sanskrit, Latin and English than projected by vested interests and the historians of the victors as Latin is also an Indo-European language. I am not an expert in Latin (my Latin learning confined to mere botanical and zoological names plus legal terms etc). However I believe it is order to give the similarities between English and Sanskrit (Some Sanskrit words are difficult to be spelt in English as the former has 48 letters whilst the latter has only 26. The differences in the pronunciation of “C”, “kicking Ka” “Curly Ka” “J” and “G” in English may be an issue for some. Sanskrit is not a simplistic or simpleton’s alphabet with only vowels and consonants but has vowels and consonants with complex Gutturals, Palatals, Cerebrals, Dentals, Labials, Sibilants and Aspirates. Please also do appreciate that most of the words given in this blog are based on the starting sound of the words represented by the respective Sanskrit and English alphabets. It is believed that to have a normal conversation or writing letters one needs only a five hundred word strong vocabulary assuming grammar, pronunciation etc are properly used. Simply because the modern numerals looks like Arabic numerals there was no need to sever the connection between the Sanskrit numerals and Arabic numerals either as there was no historical or scientific reason to do so except when history and study of languages is subservient to colonial bigotry.

(160 English words or words known to English speakers above is only a sample and not a word by word etymological research on English, Greek, Latin and other Indo-European languages and Sanskrit. The names of gods and goddess pirated by the Greeks and Romans from Sanskrit counterparts are not reproduced here as they are older than both the Greek and Roman gods even if Sir William Jones’ theory of Aryan Invasion of India in 1500 BC is to be accepted as the Gospel truth as they predate Homer and Pythogoras by atleast seven centuries. Furthermore, Shiva the Indian god has about 1000 synonyms whilst Zeus the puny God of the Greeks is caught out by the trail of gods of similar names from India upto Greece via Eastern Europe including through Poland even according to a dictionary of Mythology by J A Coleman (a British military guy turned historian of selective mythology) Anyone like Frederic von Schlegel with the ability to think freely from Germany but not under a compulsion to perpetuate the British empire in India on the orders of their London Head Quarters like Sir William Jones the author of the Aryan Theory could be more closer to the truth as the Aryans after they took their so called Sanskrit language from Central Asia to India did not write any books of a remotely intellectual calibre as that of the Mahabharata, Ramayana, Shakunthalam are all pointers for researchers to bury Sir William Jones for good unless they want to play the Divide & Rule politics of subservience under the cover of their so called historical research which resembles their sub prime research on modern economics of credit crunch!!! Please appreciate my logic as reflected by Federic von Schlegel as below or see the list of great men who support my theory against Sir William Jones/ the BBC/the Indian Booker Prize winners by having a look at my blog “What the world’s best brains said about ancient India”



Frederic von Schlegel (1772-1829), German writer, critic philosopher, philologist, the most prominent founder of German romanticism

There is no language in the world, even Greek, which has the clarity and the

Philosophical precision of Sanskrit and this great India is not only at the origin of everything she is superior in everything, intellectually, religiously or politically and even the Greek heritage seems pale in comparison.

The ancient Indians possessed knowledge of the true god; conceived and expressed in noble, clear and grand language…even the loftiest philosophy of the Europeans, the idealization of reason, as set forth by the Greeks, appears in comparison with the abundant light and vigor of oriental idealism, like a feeble spark in the full flood of the noonday sun.

Everything without exception is of Indian origin. Whether directly or indirectly, all nations are originally nothing but Indian colonies”)



INDIAN AND WESTERN CALENDARS – The names of the Fifteen Moon Days – (the English meaning of the Sanskrit words in column one are given in brackets for comparisons)

THE NUMBER OF DAYS IN EACH MONTH UNDER THE INDIAN CALENDAR SO DIFFERENT FROM WESTERN CALENDARS WHERE BOTH JULIUS AND AUGUSTUS WERE GIVEN 31 DAYS EACH TO TITTILLATE THEIR PUNY MEMORIES TO UNDERMINE FEBRUARY TO 28 AND 29 DAYS. INDIAN CALENDARS DID NOT PROPITIATE SUCH PUNY/MEDIOCRE/ PLEBIAN EGO WORSHIP IS EVIDENT FROM THE NUMBER OF DAYS CHARTED BELOW!!!

THE INDIAN AND WESTERN STAR SIGNS FOR THE NEOPHYTE IN CLASSICAL STUDIES SANS BOUNDARIES OR PREJUDICES

The ecliptic is divided into 73625252 nakshatras, which are variously called lunar houses or asterisms. These reflect the moon’s cycle against the fixed stars, 27 days and 7¾ hours, the fractional part being compensated by an intercalary 28th nakshatra. Nakshatra computation appears to have been well known at the time of the Rig Veda (2nd–1st millennium BCE).

The ecliptic is divided into the nakshatras eastwards starting from a reference point which is traditionally a point on the ecliptic directly opposite the star Spica called Chitrā in Sanskrit. (Other slightly different definitions exist.) It is called Meshādi or the “start of Aries“; this is when the equinox — where the ecliptic meets the equator — was in Aries (today it is in Pisces, 28 degrees before Aries starts). The difference between Meshādi and the present equinox is known as ayanāngsha or fraction of ecliptic. Given the 25,800 year cycle for the precession of the equinoxes, the equinox was directly opposite Spica in 285 CE, around the date of the Surya Siddhanta.[1][2]

The nakshatras with their corresponding regions of sky are given below, following Basham.[3] As always, there are many versions with minor differences. The names on the right-hand column give roughly the correspondence of the nakshatras to modern names of stars. Note that nakshatras are (in this context) not just single stars but are segments on the ecliptic characterised by one or more stars. Hence there are more than one star mentioned for each nakshatra.

An additional 28th intercalary nakshatra, Abhijit (अभिजित्)(α, ε and ζ LyraeVega – between Uttarasharha and Sravana. Last two (third and fourth) Padas of Uttrashada and first two (first and second) Padas of Sravana are considered to be Abhijit. Unless specifically mentioned it is not included in the list of the 27 constellations.

The nakshatra in which the moon lies at the time of sunrise of a day is the nakshatra for the day’s therefore obvious to an intelligent but independent mind that who copied whom in this saga!!! Was it the Aryans who came to India but did not bother to create anything literary of the magnitude of the Indians despite their superiority or the Greeks or the Romans or the Egyptians. The biggest question is who pirated whom to jump the historical and civilisational league tables?


Whilst history including history of languages written by victors may be titillating it creates complacency and complacency self delusion and defeat for the victims of such plagiarized history. This I believe is the philosophy behind the saying, “Pride Goes before a Fall”. The English dictionaries are teaching the children of the English speaking world a wrong etymology to suit their political ideology and are hurting their children in the long run whilst the sycophant historians are profiting and amassing awards, citations and recognition! The proof of the pudding is in the eating as in the spelling competitions done in the USA/UK where the native children are lagging behind the children from the Indian and Chinese families in both the USA and the UK.



If western soldiers are constantly taught that no body conquered Afghanistan and Russia they would grow up as soldiers, commanders and Defense Secretaries to believe it as a gospel truth. Of course Russia was conquered by the Huns, Genghis Khan and Kublai Khan; the Japanese just like the Romans and Greeks conquered “all of the entire known world”. Afghanistan was conquered by at least two Indian emperors Chandragupta Maurya and Ashoka/Asoka besides the Huns and the Khans above. Alexander never conquered India and his so called benevolence of giving India back to the Indians as Lord Macaulay taught the Indians was simply to pump down Indian accomplishments and achievements to pump up British accomplishments through their western counterparts.

As regards the relative wealths of the Greeks with their olives, Egyptian with their cotton, babylons with their almonds, Romans with their grapes the best measurement is their relative trade baskets compared to ancient India. As regards their religions, gods, goddesses the relative religious scriptures they have and worhsips paractised today in these countries would testify the depth of their religions. Hinduism and Judaism withstood the invasions, oppressions, progroms, prosyletisation of the foreigners. What more the scriptures and srutis of the Jews and the Hindus and their temples/synagogues are still venerated by their devotees. What about the Romans, Greeks, Egyptians, Babylonians, Aztecs, Arabs etc? The true test of a religion is its deep rooted existence and not a fad which could have been copied from anywhere. Simply because the IPad is made in China today does not mean that the idea for the IPad originated in China. It may or may not have.

If ancient Indians could take Hinduism up to Sumatra and Malaka and built temples there they could have designed even the Egyptian pyramids. If Indians could have built Anghor Vatt in Cambodia and abandoned it for the French to discover it in the 18th century they could have travelled to Egypt. It is relevant to re-appraise the full impact of the musings of Strabos the Greek geographer who claimed that one ship sailed from India to Greece & Rome via Alexandria in the first century AD. The Romans were losing about 1% of their GDP to the luxury goods from India around that time.

This list of words above however is not an exhaustive list of all Sanskrit words similar to English but only teaser to prod others to investigate further. This sort of literary, religious, civilization, scientific connections between India and Europe could be the reason why some of the best brains in the world like Oppenheimer, Wheeler, Bailey, Voltaire, Mark Twain, Von Schlegel, Elliot, Heisenberg, Schopenhauer from diverse fields such as Physics to Literature and Philosophy eulogized and revered the ancient Indian Heritage. Sir William Jones (the author of the Aryan theory) a British colonial judge like Lord Macaulay (colonial educationalist in India) is definitely not in the league of these great men. For more information on this see my blog- What the Best Brains Said About Ancient Indian Heritage” by clicking the link below;

http://myblogsmymusings.blogspot.com/2011/03/how-worlds-best-brains-described-india.html

If you highlight the above link and then right click your mouse and then click on “search google for” the above link would be visible which would corroborate my what I have been saying above. I hope if one adopts an open mind to read through this post one can see the intellectual piracy of the Greeks (with their olives), Romans (with their wine), Egyptians (with their cotton), Babylonians (with their almonds/pistaccio) against the trade basket of India with diamonds, pearls, saffron, dhaka muslin, pashmina, spices, ivory which would still exceed the trade baskets of all these other countries in value terms!!! As said earlier the Romans were losing 1% of their GDP to their import of Indian luxury items had to pay the Indians in gold as the legal tender in an ancient barter scheme and even today India has the largest reserve of gold at 15,000 tons out of the 140,000 tons so far mined globally in their homes much maligned slums!!!
