I for one have only a little Latin* and, sadly, no Sanskit or any other Indian language, mohit.
Equidem paulùm latinè novi. Sanscritam linguam adusquè ignoro, mohit, me paenitet; nec ullam aliam linguam indicam intellego.

*Latin from a can isn't proper fare but that's all I have.
*Latinum è vasculo stanneo non est apparatus suus, at id solum mihi est.
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.

What is it that you want to know, or do you merely want to find friends and aquintances among people who're into both latinity and indology :3?
Här kan jag i alla fall skriva på svenska, eller hur?

Latin and sanskrit are both indoeuropian languages.I learnt a little bit of sanskrit. When I saw Latin book I found that not only words but also some conjugations are similar. So I am asking.

If you are interested in details, you might want to try looking on the 'Net for some books on comparative Indo-European linguistics, for instance, Clackson's Indo-European Linguistics-An Introduction or Beekes' Comparative Indo-European Linguistics-An Introduction. If you can't find anything, send me a personal message.

Or go here for older stuff in the public domain.

Be careful of public domain books! there is one there written by a moron called George Dunbar attempting to prove Sanskrit derived from Greek and, I think, Latin derived from Doric Greek.

A good introduction would be Forstens book. I know some Sanskrit and Hindi, not enough to compose in the former though.

vasitosi is a sandhi means two words brought together. These words are vasitah + asi. Here the visarga or the last ha of vasitah changes to vasito and a will be removed from asi so it will become vasitosi. It means where do you live or reside?
vasitaha means one who is living or residing in some place.

Oh sure, thanks. Sure it's saṁdhi, I couldn't recognize because I always read it like vāsito 'si... it's really hard to see the missing 'a' otherwise!

in devnagari script when we wite these types of sandhi there a sign of s or avagraha lies between two words so we can recognise it correctly.
vasito s(avagraha)+si= vasitosi.
The word is sandhi not samdhi.
