Striking similarities between the Urdu and Irish languages

Urdu and Irish are Indo-European languages and even though they are geographically very far apart there are many similarities between them.

There is another interesting comparison I would like to make between the Urdu word Kinara and the Irish word Cinn Mhara (Kinvara in English): Kinara and Cinn Mhara (Kinvara).

Now we would like to compare Irish (Gaelic) and Urdu/Hindi numerals.
