These languages are not standalone. they are derived from various other languages. for example telugu is heavily derived from samskritam though the script is different. so are other indian languages except tamil. one can know it from the grammatical syntax and wordings. i was refering to uniqueness of a language. when told abt uniqueness, i would like to mention one thing that samskritham has withstood importing of words from other languages since ages. one doesnt find change in grammar or the way one speaks in samskritham since ages. thats not true with other languages. well there are only a few standalone languages - like - samskritham, tamil, latin , hebrew etc from which present day languages arose.
