    Do you deny Danskrit originated from Tamil?

    That European languages emerged from Sanskrit ? I very much doubt it.
    That they share a common reconstructed ancestor (Proto-indo-european),
    yes. And that Vedic Sanskrit is close to this reconstructed ancestor,
    yes. But I would say this is different than saying that European
    languages descend from Sanskrit.
