Sorry for the noise, I was not careful enough to look and forgot that
I see the XeLaTeX result, not lualatex. The rendering is not correct
and when I tried a real Hindi text (a few poems) it looks really
terribly. I know the rules for Devanagari but do not know where to
plug them in. My knowledge of luatex is almost zero, I have just
passed Taco's lua tutorial last year on CM at Brejlov. Lua as a
language will not be difficult for me (I already know Algol, PL/I, C,
C++, Perl, PHP, Pascal, Java, Tcl), I just have to learn lua's TeX
