Well, now i will put an effort to share some words which are originated from HINDI, PERSIAN and SANSKRIT origin. They are very common words but we often get confused to them in our words.

1.Dacoit
    from  Dakait, meaning a member of a class of criminals who engage in organized robbery and murder. (banditry)

2.Dinghy
    from Dinghi, small boat, wherry-boat

Cherub: a winged angelic being described in biblical tradition as attending on God. It is represented in ancient Middle Eastern art as a lion or bull with eagles' wings and a human face, and regarded in traditional Christian angelology as an angel of the second highest order of the ninefold celestial hierarchy.
