This map shows the regions
of the world where a variety of Dardic languages are commonly
spoken in the region of Kashmir and the Upper Indus valley region
around Kush (red circle). These includes Nuristani or Kafiri
and several other minor languages like Shina and Khowar. These
languages definitely seem to be in the Indo-Iranian branch of
languages, but they may or may not descend directly from the
Indic branch and Vedic Sanskrit.
