intriguing are evocative and very basic Bengali words suggesting common roots. I've transcribed a few, not using Bengali characters,
rag (pronounced rahj) as in "rage" - (anger)
uttor (pronounced utter) meaning "reply"
bad (pronounced bahd) as in "dishonest"
path (pahth) meaning "road"
Bengali, like Hindi, comes out of Sanskrit. Bengali grammar and
sentence structure is evocative of Latin.
