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.
