I seem to have missed the original message, but this is an area that we
have been working in, and we would be glad to help out, if you can give
us some more details about what you need. Please mail me off-list, or
ask on the indlinux-group or indlinux-hindi mailing list that you can
join from the top of the page:

Unfortunately, desktop publishing in Indian languages is still far from
being ready for prime-time. OpenOffice can do it after a fashion, and
it is possible to shoehorn it into TeX/LaTeX, but those do not support
Unicode. I have high hopes for Scribus in this regard, but we are also
looking at ways to make publishing in TeX easier for Indian languages.
