Avis is sheep in Lithuanian while it is Avi in sanskrit.

And Lithuanian grammar is closest to Sanskrit Grammar .

So many more common words..

Prof. Sisirkumar Mitra, renowned Indian scholar has done a profound study of ancient Lithuanian Text and observed following startling facts with regard to names of Gods , rivers and tribes appearing therein . I quote
River names in ancient Lithuanian Texts :

Nemuna (Yamuna), Tapti (Tapti), Narbudey (Narmada), Srobati (Saraswati)
Tribal or Clan names of the Lithuanians :
Kuru, Puru, Yadav, Sudav
Gods or Deities in ancient Lithuanian texts .
Indra, Varuna, Purakanya (Vedic Parjanya)

well known Scholar and Linguist  Dr S S Toshkhani writes :

"“ Lithuanian, like Classical Greek and other European languages, is very close to Sanskrit, not only in the etymologies of its basic vocabulary but also in the principles of its generative grammar as well as ancient phonology. In this context I would like to quote the renowned scholar, Dr. Lokesh Chandra, who writes, "Sanskrit verbal roots, prefixes and suffixes, as well as the generative system, became the building blocks of European languages." Referring specifically to the Lithuanian language, he adds: "To this day Sanskrit is associated with Lithuanian as symbol of national identity. We can go to a classroom at the Vilnius University of Lithuania Republic . The professor writes on the blackboard in Lithuanian and Sanskrit. Lithuanian: kas to esi Sanskrit Meaning: kas tvam asi Who are you? Lithuanian: kas tavo sunus Sanskrit meaning: kas tava sunus Who is your son? / Kas to esi is an eternal question before manin his quest for knowlwdge. The answer is as brief in Lithuanian as  it is in Sanskrit: Tas tu esi = Tat tvam asi." My father ,late Prof. S. K. Toshkhani, had in an article titled "Some Antiquities of Kashmiri"claimed that there are several lexical affinities between Lithuanian and Kashmiri. He had, however, not elaborated. He was obviously pointing to the Sanskrit connection.”

Lithuania is a beautiful country on the coastline of Baltic Sea in Northern Europe with a population of just 36 lakhs . It is a country with beautiful Lakes and dense forests .This country has a documented history of more than 2000 years. It was a home to ancient Baltic tribes and presently inhabited by poles, Germans, Ukranians, Romani,Tartars , Russians and Jews living peacefully.It is a member of European Union.
