The word कौन reminds me of the Spanish word "quién".

These IE languages are so fascinating in their shared roots. क्या(kya) reminds me of French quoi

I fact most interrogative pronouns start with some form of K sound.

*Indo-European started with either *Kw or *Ky or *K

In the germanic languages the K-sound shifted to a [x], which became a H word-initially.

In English, Duch and German the H dissapeared in this position.
