Dear Prabhujis and Matajis,
Hare Krishna. Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
Maharaj gave some interesting findings of how many modern languages like English were transformed from Sanskrit. I am putting them down here for your pleasure.
The word Fever comes from the sanskrit word jvara which was initially used as jever which means "an abnormal temperature".
The word Dyspepsia (bad digestion) comes from dushpacanashaya.
The word Prostrate gland (name of a gland that is located in front of the urinary bladder) comes from prasthita granthi.
The word Know comes from jna.
The word Muscle comes from mousal.
The word Anasthesia (one lying in an improper state) comes from anastha-shaayi.
The word Surgeon (one who wields sharp instruments) comes from salya-jana.
The word Fertility comes from phalati-iti.
The word Alopathy (technical meaning is 'treatment is different from the symptom') comes from alagpathy.
Thank you very much
Yours in service of Srila Prabhupada,
