Description
This is a pioneering work because it explores the common etymologies of Urdu, Persian, and Hindi words of everyday usage. It surprises with its ability to link Urdu and Persian words with English and the other European languages. Not much has been done about word roots after Muhammad Hussain Azad and his �Sukhan Dan-e-Fars�. This book is written for the common reader in the form of stories behind words that come to us from Arabic and the Indo-European languages. It makes one sensitive to the words used every day and encourages one to explore their journey across civilizations.
