Both european languages and indian languages are part of a language group called indo-european languages. There are plenty of similarities between them. You will find plenty of words which are common between Indian languages and european languages. So The list you have given below might not be true that these words were taken from sanskrit. You might be wrong here. These words might have their origin in latin and would have been acquired in sanskrit and then later on in english.

nice compilation! thanks for sharing. one question though - why the arrow is always from left to right? i mean how can we say that sanskrit didn't inherit these from other languages? why we assume that sanskrit is the oldest language? any historical evidence or reason
