It's similarities in very "basic" words for something as far removed as Hindi and German.

Things like family relations are often only a few sound-changes removed P<>V (sound like F) i <> a

Vater (Father) vs. Pita

even with only the change of i<>a you're very close to the latin "pater".


There are other things, like the indian word "Raj" being very similar to it's latin translation "Rex".
