7)- Sentry:- In Hindi as in Sanskrit Santri is prime minister of any state, one who is subordinate only to king and no one else, one who is advisory of the king and plans action of the state. That word is called to derive the word sentry meaning A guard, especially a soldier posted at a given spot to prevent the passage of unauthorized persons.

8)- Aryan:- is derived from the Sanskrit ‘arya’. It is also present in Latin (Ariana) and Greek (Aria), but is believed to ultimately root from Sanskrit. In the 18th century in Sanskrit, the word meant ‘speaker of the North Indian language’. In the 1830s Aryan was expanded to mean ‘speaker of Indo-European languages’ since it was discovered that Iranians also used the same word for the same meaning. In Nazi Germany, the main meaning of Aryan was considered to be ‘non-Jewish’ and Aryans were recognized by features such as blonde hair and blue eyes. Hindu religion today is only the leftover of the most ancient civilization of the world, note the word the most, Aryan. Even Swami vivekanand didn't want that religion to die uselessly therefore he founded an organisation called Arya Samaj (Society of Aryan). see for more information
