Of course they are, but the reason they're written with the -a at the end is probably because that's how they were pronounced in Sanskrit. I think Westerners were interested in Sanskrit before they were in modern Indic languages because it was the liturgical language of Hinduism and also because it was very useful to linguistics because of its age.

Is it appropriate for me to say, dhanyavāda Guru? I have a friend that lives in Kannada and I want to properly thank him for his help. Thank You

You might want to ask this question in the South Asian forum since Kannada is quite different from Hindi:
