alexander's observations in india

hello everyone,

i would be grateful to anyone who could tell me where to find the reference for alexander's observation that the local indian language (sanskrit? vedic?) was similar to greek, and that in fact some basic communication was possible. i combed arrian's account but couldn't locate it. thanks a lot in advance
