How old is Sanskrit?

Long ago, before languages were introduced, human beings used gestures and primitive oral sounds to communicate with each other. It was the time when there were no civilizations but only kingdoms were present at the time. The concept of language emerged about 10,000 years ago and it completely changed the communication platform of humanity. Since then, the use of languages has developed, and currently, we have more than 7,000 languages that different speakers speak. But the origin of the first language has always been the debate. Today, we will study one of the oldest languages of the world i.e. Sanskrit language. It is a major part of the Indo-European language family.
