I am trying to generate latex in hindi. When I run my sample file by
"pdflatex sampleHindi.tex", I am getting the below error


! Undefined control sequence.

\u-default-2313 #1->\textdevanagariu

l.13 ठ     à¤à¥ à¤à¥ (à¤à¤à¤¡à¥à¤¯à¤¸) ना à¤à¤°à¤µà¤¾à¤à¥¤

When I change the utf8x inputenc to utf8 and ignoring the ucs package, it
throws different error.

! Package inputenc Error: Unicode char \u8:ठnot set up for use with LaTeX.

I tried installing the devanagari package (Velthuis Devanagari) but it
doesn’t help.

What is missing here, not allowing the latex to print in hindi.?

I have attached the sample tex file.
