Hi, I am from india and i speak bengali. when I started learning russian(yesterday). I was overwhelmed to see the striking similarities between sanskrit and russian language. Most russian numbers are spelled like sanskrit. As bengali is heavily influenced by sanskrit, we say the exact pronunciation for the numbers like dwi for 2, tri for 3, chatur for 4, pach for 5, and sastha for six, astam for 8, disoto for 10, soto for 100 and. anyone knows why? there must be more words like ancient sanskrit. Am i learning some ancient form of sanskrit or really russian?

May be,DNA genealogy can shed some light? There are many good introductory videos on YouTube.

As I know, slavs and Indians had a common ancestor (about 4500 years ago)
